Doctor Who – Cast list for David Tennant’s last two episodes

Posted by LiveFor on December 3, 2009

The Doctor as David Tennant is coming to the end of his journey. The End of Time is showing in the UK on Christmas day.

Now the cast list for the two parter is out on imdb (so it may not be totally correct) and it makes for some interesting reading. Spoilers ahoy!

John Barrowman (Captain Jack)
Brian Cox (The Elder of the Ood)
Timothy Dalton (The Narrator)
Lachele Carl (Trinity Wells)
Jessica Hynes (Verity Newman)
David Harewood (Joshua Naismith)
Jacqueline King (Sylvia Noble)
Alexandra Moen (Lucy Saxon)
Sylvia Seymour (Miss Trefusis)
Catherine Tate (Donna Noble)
Russell Tovey (Midshipman Frame)
John Simm (The Master)
Jimmy Vee (Monster)
June Whitfield (Minnie Hopper)
Paul Kasey (Ood Sigma)
Silas Carson (Ood voice)

Part Two also has:

Roger Bailey (Time Lord)
Teresa Banham (Governor)
Brid Brennan (Visionary)
Camille Caduri (Jackie Tyler)
Tommy Knight (Luke Smith)
Billie Piper (Rose Tyler)
Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith)
Matt Smith (The Doctor)
Penelope Wilton (Harriet Jones)

What have we learnt from this then? Well lots of familiar faces – Captain Jack, Harriet Jones, Rose & Jackie Tyler, The Master, Donna Noble.

Of particular interest are characters such as Verity Newman (Jessica Hynes). She also played Joan Redfer the character who was engaged to the Doctor when he went human and saw his book The Journal of Impossible Things. Apparantly Verity is a modern day author who has written the very same book – reincarnation maybe?

Now I’m not sure whether the Doctor will be revisiting all these people to right wrongs when he last met them or if it will be flashbacks – as it is Doctor Who it will probably be the former.

We’ll also get out first glimpse of Matt Smith as the new Doctor and a Time Lord!

Any thoughts or ideas as to what we may see in the final moments of Tennant’s Doctor? I for one am going to miss him.

Dr Who – Trailer for Tennant’s last episode has been seen – spoilers

Posted by LiveFor on July 27, 2009


The trailer for David Tennant’s last episodes of Dr. Who, The End Of Time, have been seen. io9 describes it as this – Spoilers ahead:

We see the planet Earth from space, with the sun coming out behind it, and Timothy Dalton’s voice purrs: “It is said that in the final days of the planet Earth, everyone had bad dreams.” And then we see weird laughing faces, followed by David Tennant looking quite perturbed. We see glimpses of Wilf, Donna, Donna’s mother, and an African man in a suit, all looking very serious. And there’s a scary snake-faced creature. And then there’s a figure in a dark hoodie lurking ominously. Dalton narrates: “He returns.” We catch a glimpse of Ood Sigma, the Ood who told the Doctor his song was ending. And then the Doctor standing in the background, with the guy in a hoodie in the foreground. And then the hoodie comes off, and it’s John Simm with his hair weirdly bleached! His voice comes: “My name is the Master.” And then a title comes on the screen: “THE END OF TIME.” And the Doctor walks forward with flames in the background, his face looking smoky and serious. And the title says “CHRISTMAS 2009.” And the crowd goes wild.

Dr Who – The guest star rumours are true

Posted by LiveFor on June 16, 2009

The photo above confirms a few rumours that have been knocking about regarding David Tennant’s final few episodes of Doctor Who. Apologies for any spoilers.

As you can see both Timothy Dalton and John Sim are with Tennant between takes. Presumably Sim will be back as The Master, although as he died, or that version of him died, in a previous series then I am not sure what he could be doing. Mind you it did end with a Ming the Merciless style picking up the ring thing.

It looks as if Dalton is dressed up in some Time Lord finery (although that’s not definite) so it may mean the Time Lords are coming back or maybe he will be in some flashbacks featuring the young Doctor and The Master.

Any theories on what could happen? Whatever the story will be it is good to know that some class actors will be guest starring for David Tennants last few days as a Time Lord. It is going to be sad to see him go.

UPDATED: New Dr Who named today

Posted by LiveFor on January 3, 2009

UPDATE: The new Doctor has been anounced and it is not who we thought. Read more here.

The name of the actor who will replace David Tennant in Doctor Who will be announced today in the 5:35pm Dr Who Confidential on BBC1. I still think it will be Paterson Joseph as I mentioned back in October (here is some footage as to why he would be a great Doctor).
This from the BBC website.

Tennant said in October that he would stand down from the show after filming four special episodes in 2009.

The casting was confirmed over Christmas and filming for the 2010 series begins in the summer.

Tennant is due to begin shooting the first of his four specials this month, just weeks after surgery on his back.

David Tennant says he is envious of his replacement, whose ‘life will change’

The last of these episodes is expected to run in early 2010.

The casting decision has been a priority for the show’s new creative team, led by executive producers Steven Moffat and Piers Wenger.

The BBC said that in Saturday’s Doctor Who special “the actor playing the new Doctor will be giving his or her initial reaction” to becoming TV’s most famous time traveller.

Wenger, head of drama at BBC Wales, said: “We believe the actor is going to bring something very special to the role and will make it absolutely their own.

“I just can’t wait to tell everyone who it is – it has been a nail-biting Christmas trying to keep this under wraps!”

Shortly after Tennant’s announcement, bookmakers were tipping several well-known names as the next actor (or actress) to step into the Tardis.

Murphy’s Law and Cold Feet star James Nesbitt emerged as one of the favourites, along with Paterson Joseph, John Simm and David Morrissey – who appeared in the 2008 Christmas special.

Paterson Joseph, who recently starred in Survivors and appeared in two Doctor Who episodes in 2005, has said “any actor would love the challenge” of playing the Time Lord.

Bookmakers made him an early favourite – offering odds of 3-1 on him becoming the first black Doctor.

Comedian Jennifer Saunders, former Doctor Who assistant Billie Piper and film star Catherine Zeta Jones have also been mentioned in connection with the role.

The show’s outgoing executive producer Russell T Davies said last month: “Whoever becomes the Doctor has got to take on a whole life. It’s not just becoming a part of a TV show.”

In October, when Tennant was asked who he thought should replace him, he joked: “Well, I’ve always been a big supporter of Wee Jimmy Krankie!”

Doctor Who began in 1963, and seven actors played the Doctor before the show was dropped in 1989.

After a TV movie in 1996 – starring Paul McGann – the TV series returned in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston in the lead role. Tennant took over the role the same year.

Dr Who – A theory as to how it may end.

Posted by LiveFor on June 30, 2008

I know this is a site for all things relating to the world of film. However, at a stretch (and as it is my site) I really must mention the recent episode of Dr Who, The Stolen Earth. Beware, spoilers ahoy.

For those of you who saw it you will know that it was a glorious mess. Torchwood, Sarah Jane, Martha Jones, Rose Tyler all made an appearance and it resulted in a blinder of a cliff hanger. If it goes the obvious way then the BBC and David Tennant have managed to keep this under their hats so well. Basically, the Doctor gets shot by a Dalek and the episode ends with him beginning to regenerate. However, as it is a Russell T Davies episode and he likes his reset buttons (maybe the Osterhagen Key mentioned in this episode) we shall have to wait and see.

The point of this post is to give my idea as to what is going to happen. Firstly, I’ll just list a few things from within the series. This episode made a point of reminding us that the Doctor’s hand (which had been cut off in The Christmas Invasion) was still on board the TARDIS. There have also been mentions throughout the series that Donna is more important than we realise. Dalek Caan mentioned the Threefold Man and the fact there will be everlasting death for the most faithful companion (out of the current crop of companions I’m going to say Donna is the most faithful as she has never left, or it could be K-9). Donna zoned out at one point during the last episode and we heard the slow beat of a drum or footsteps getting closer, she was also wearing a large ring. This all ties in with the previous appearance of the Master.

Outside the series there have been rumours that John Simm would be returning as the Doctor and apparently Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy were on Dr Who Confidential.

Okay all that’s done. My theory is that the Master is coming back and is either Donna or is using her as a host. As the Doctor regenerates the Master will absorb this energy and return condemning Donna to an everlasting death. This would mean the Doctor is effectively dead. However, his hand may be effected by the regeneration and basically regenerate the Tenth Doctor (this could also side step the fact Time Lord’s can only regenerate a limited number of times, basically resetting the clock) who will step in and save the day. However, the regeneration may be effected by the Master and bring back various aspects of the Doctor (the Threefold Man) meaning we could see the a few familiar faces as mentioned about.

Just a theory and we’ve got to wait a few more days to see. What do you think?
