David Tennant has spoken about leaving the role of the Tenth Doctor behind, and admitted he had some concerns about the 50th Anniversary.
At the Tenth Doctor BFI event last weekend, Tennant said: “Part of me would have stayed doing it forever. But it’s one of those things where you just have to take a deep breath and think: ‘If I don’t leave this show now, people will resent me still being there in 25 years.’”
Tennant spoke about reprising the the role for ‘The Day of the Doctor’ and admitted that he had a few worries.
In an extract from ‘The Doctor: His Lives and Times’, Tennant says: “I thought, ‘Oh this’ll be great’. As the day approaches, I then think , ‘What if Matt [Smith] feels like I’m stepping on his toes?’ Or, ‘What if I can’t remember how to do it? Surely I’m too old to be doing this now?’
“The first day, Matt wasn’t there. So the first day it was just me. It was like, ‘Oh yeah, I sort of remember this.’ Then the next day it becomes something different again because we were together. Mind you there’s not as many lines to learn when there’s two of you.”
Speaking about how the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors get on: “They switch between praising each other’s ingenuity to trying to undermine it at every opportunity. You sort of switch from being quite pleased with yourself to being infuriated at your own inadequacies, and I guess that’s kind of writ large, isn’t it, if you meet yourself.”
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, ‘The Day of the Doctor’ will air on Saturday, 23rd November on BBC One (UK) and BBC America (US). Full worldwide times are yet to be confirmed.

I reblog this every time it comes up on my dashboard, not because it is a “rule” but because every time I see it the love and sincerity on her face hit me all over again and I think everyone deserves to see that.
And THIS is why I adore Catherine Tate. She’s loud and brash but in quieter moments… her soul comes shining through and it makes everything about her so much more beautiful.
Doctor Who Watching - Part 5
Well I finished this season a last week and I also figured out I had to finish another DVD set of Doctor Who episodes. So how did I do watching a whole season with Donna? Pretty well actually. At the beginning of the season I really didn’t like how Donna kept crying and saying she was going to go home because of some stuff that didn’t go her way. I was like “Sure she’s caring but stop saying your going to leave!”. Eventually she finally stopped that and settled down into being a pretty good companion. Oh and I was so excited for the Tenth Doctor to finally regenerate because that would mean I would have finally get caught up to where I started. But no! It turned out there were five more specials that I didn’t know about. So now I’m getting ready to write the final part to this post series. So horray! OH! I hated that episode Turn Left. It annoys me the only reason Donna ever met the Doctor was because she took a left turn. WHAT A HORRIBLE WAY TO DECIDE IF YOU MEET THE DOCTOR! UGH!
