Tennant to quit as Doctor Who

Full Story

David Tennant is to stand down as Doctor Who, after becoming one of the most popular Time Lords in the history of the BBC science fiction show.

Tennant stepped into the Tardis in 2005, and will leave the role after four special episodes are broadcast next year.

He made the announcement after winning the outstanding drama performance prize at the National Television Awards.

This is a shame. He’s been really good as the Doctor. He’ll be a tough act to follow. With more time in the role, he might have gone down as the best of them all, but at this point, I think the nod still goes to Tom Baker.
