Tennant: “When Doctor Who returns in 2010 it won’t be with me.”
No disservice to Eccelston because he brought the Doctor back, but Tennant gives–gave 😥 –the role a certain magic that not only evoked the classic feeling of Doctor Who, but also set a new standard for the series and for modern televised science fiction as well. And as great as he is in the role, even I wouldn’t want this haunting him for the rest of his career. I mean when people went to see Equus on broadway, they weren’t going to see Daniel Radcliffe on stage, they were going to see Harry Potter’s penis. Tennant’s currently starring with Patrick Stewart in Hamlet as it is, that’s firing tons of geek cylinders already!
Besides, we’ve still got four 2009 specials to look forward to, and this just gets the rumors flowing as to who will be the next to play The Doctor. 😀
