David Tennant has come top of a TV industry magazine's ranking of the UK's best TV talent. He managed to beat off
tough competition from Catherine Tate and Jamie Oliver scoop the top spot in the Broadcast Hot 100.
Broadcast said landing the role of one of TV's most iconic characters has propelled Tennant into the big time. "As yet
we've had only the briefest glimpse of him as the Doctor, but if you missed his exuberant, charismatic, detailed performance
as the eponymous hero in Casanova - where were you?"
Here at D-T.com we'd like to all say well done David!

Today's Daily Record has an interview with David featuring many quotes
from the BBC Doctor Who Press release.
A few of the best bits include David talking about his new role as the
psychotic Brendan Block in ITVs Secret Smile, due to be screened on 12th December, he says:
'Being particularly hard on Kate is a bit weird because she's such an eminently likeable, very gentle and open person.
You do feel a bit of a heel, being cruel mentally and physically.'Brendan is a dangerous, complicated character. It is a fantastic
challenge to get to play such a dark and compelling part. I look forward to indulging my dark side.'
Talking about his growing fame from starring as Casanova he says: 'There were two enormous poster campaigns. It's
quite weird to see yourself. 'I tend to look away - not that anyone passing by the posters is checking to see if you're there.'But
it's quite fun, as well. I was on a bus in Edinburgh, when I saw the face of one of the cast, Nina Sosanya and her enormous
cleavage, and thought: 'That's my head resting on it!' I quickly texted Nina and said: 'We're 15 feet tall in Edinburgh'.

Manchester Online says:
"New Dr Who David Tennant was getting the female hearts-a-fluttering at the awards, looking stylish in pinstripe
suit and laughing and joking with fans. David was nominated in the best performance in a comedy or drama category for his
role as Casanova in the BBC production, which was part-filmed in Manchester, but lost out to David Threlfall for Shameless.
Scottish heartthrob David has taken over from Salfordian Christopher Eccleston as the popular time-traveller, and admits he
is a little in awe of his predecessor and his success as Dr Who. 'They are incredibly big boots to fill, but I'm going to
do my best,' he told me. 'It's great to be back in Manchester tonight and, of course, it didn't really matter that I didn't
win. It's just been a fantastic night.'"

We have loads of great info on the Christmas Invasion today. Firstly I
have made some caps from the Doctor Who Confidential episode Backstage At Christmas which you can see here. Please ask permission before using any of these caps, thanks.
The BBC have also issued the following press release which gives a brief
outline of the story:
It's Christmas and Jackie Tyler
is at home preparing for the festive season, not knowing if her daughter Rose will be home in time - or at all. Then
she hears the familiar, ancient grind of the TARDIS! Mickey, who is hard at work, also hears it and they both race across
the estate just in time to witness the TARDIS' glorious, chaotic crash landing. The doors open and, much to their delight,
out steps Rose and a complete stranger - except it isn't a stranger - it's the Doctor. Disorientated, yet overwhelmed to see
them, he takes a few minutes to regain his balance and consider what it is he wants to tell them. "Oh! I know! Merry Christmas!"
he yells, before collapsing. The Doctor falls in and out of consciousness, with Rose and Jackie powerless to help him.
In a bid to boost Rose's spirits, Mickey suggests a spot of Christmas shopping. A good plan - until they find themselves under
attack by a sinister brass band of masked Santas. However, they are not the only ones with problems. Prime Minister
Harriet Jones has just been informed that a British space probe, on its way to Mars for a Christmas Day landing, has gone
missing. It has been kidnapped by a monstrous race known as the Sycorax, who are set on taking over the world. Meanwhile, back at the Tylers', Mickey and Jackie are trying to fend off a killer
Christmas tree, while Rose tries to wake the Doctor.

The BBC Wales website has the following article about last nights Christmas
Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Billie Piper marked the build up
to their Time Lord Christmas special with lights and fireworks in Cardiff. The pair, who play the Doctor and his sidekick,
Rose Tyler, switched on the city's Christmas lights. Tenant makes his debut as the Doctor in an hour-long special, to be screened
on Christmas Day, which was recorded in the city. He told the crowd that he also gets to play a woman in the new series. Tennant,
34, the 10th incarnation of the Doctor, was accompanied by Piper for the switch-on outside Cardiff's Civic Centre. Piper revealed
to the crowd that other dangers the pair face in the sci-fi series, the second made by BBC Wales, include a werewolf as well
as the cybermen. Speaking from the stage moments before switching on the city's festive lights, she confided that the enemy
in next month's episode is a Christmas tree. This is the second year the Dr Who team has lit up Cardiff
Christmas tree attacks us. That's pretty exciting and quite threatening and scary at the same time," she said. The cyberman
also seemed to have made an impression on her. She said: "They are giants, absolutely terrifying (but) quite sexy actually."
The series is produced by Swansea-born writer, Russell T Davies, who also attended the Christmas lights switch on. He said
he did not yet know what time the Doctor Who special would be broadcast, but viewers should expect to be frightened. He said:
"It's scary. That's why we can't show it after the Queen."
ICWales.co.uk also covered the story:
Doctor Who stars Billie Piper and David Tennant told fans how much they loved filming in Cardiff as they switched
on the city's Christmas lights last night.
The ceremony was marked with a spectacular fireworks display, which delighted
the thousands of families who turned up to watch.
The actors led the countdown to the big switch on.
Piper told the
crowd, "Cardiff is like my home town now - I have been here for about two years. We have the warmest welcome wherever we go,
it's been really lovely.
"You have been so generous, giving up your streets and restaurants for us to film.
been great, we're having such a great time here at the moment, everyone is being so nice and so friendly."Tennant said, "I'm
having a great time in Cardiff, it's such a nice place and it's quite overwhelming to be here."Tennant is the 10th Doctor
and he made his first appearance, taking over from Christopher Eccleston, in the final scene of the last series, penned by
Swansea writer Russell T Davies."I'm having a miserable time - Max Boyce is taking over as the new Doctor," he joked, before
adding, "I'm having a ball, I get to hang out with Billie Piper, it's a great time."Every day is different, the other day
we were hanging 30ft in the air, although I can't tell you why."Before the Doctor Who actors arrived on stage the audience
were entertained by the BBC's Derek Brockway and Claire Summers.

The BBC have revealed the new look Cybermen that David wll be
battling in the new series. The BBC Official Doctor Who Site says:
Filming of the eagerly awaited Cybermen adventure is underway
in Cardiff. The first two-parter of series two written by Tom MacRae (Nine Lives, School’s Out) sees The Doctor and
companions’ battle against a new, more deadly breed of Cybermen who are out to convert humanity into their own kind.
Phil Collinson says: ‘The villainous Cybermen are as much a part of Doctor Who heritage as the Daleks and so it’s
a huge personal thrill to see them back. I hope that the evil silver giants will terrify a whole new generation of viewers
as they confront the tenth Time Lord.’
The sinister breed of monsters; second only to the Daleks in their infamy
made their first appearance in 1966 and haven’t darkened our screens since 1988. Next year will mark their 40th anniversary.
created by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, (also the creators of Doomwatch), the modernised version have been superbly redesigned
by Edward Thomas’s design team and Neil Gorton at Millennium FX.
The episodes which will be seen next year in
the highly anticipated second series, directed by Graeme Harper, also stars Camille Coduri as Rose’s mum Jackie, Noel
Clarke as Rose’s hapless boyfriend Mickey, Roger Lloyd-Pack as the monstrous John Lumic Andrew Hayden-Smith as Jake
Simmonds and Shaun Dingwall returns as Peter Tyler, Rose’s dad.

As you all know there will be a special episode of Doctor Who,
starring David, on Children In Need on Friday 18th November. The Radio Times website has suggested that the air time of this
will be between 21:00pm and 21:30pm, although given the general set up of this live event it is subject to change.
Thanks to Gary who tells us that BBC Radio Jersey interviewed
the director of the Children in Need special, and he had this to say on the Doctor Who special:
"It's the moment that
links the last series to the new series, it's a real episode but I don't think its fifteen minutes.
I haven't been allowed
to see it yet, they filmed it last week in Cardiff but they aren't giving us the tape until just before the show because they
want to keep it secret so nobody is allowed to see it.
So I don't know what’s in it, I don't know how long it is
but I do know it's a scene between Billie Piper in the TARDIS and it's the moment David Tennant materialised at the end of
the last series.
This is the beginning of the second series where they are in the TARDIS going off on their first gig."

The Doctor Who team have been filming in London all week and
above are some photos from yesterday's shoot by the River Thames.
Today's issue of The Sun runs the following article:
Doctor Who star David Tennant gets to grips with his new role — and his co-star —
during filming yesterday.
David, 34, who replaced Christopher Eccleston as the Timelord, grabbed sexy assistant Rose Tyler
(Billie Piper) by the face as they shot scenes by the River Thames in London. A BBC insider said:
“The on-screen chemistry between the two is explosive.
“They work really well together and we are sure the next series will be even more popular
than the last.”

Many thanks to Karen for sending this article to us, it is from
been described as having the looks of a weasel and is said to be a leading exponent of "geek chic." But now new Doctor Who, Paisley's David Tennant, is apparently going to be something of a doll. For the BBC - makers of the cult sci-fi series - are considering commissioning
a character action doll of Tennant once he hits the small screen in the coveted role. And the move could boost the former Paisley
Grammar School pupil's profile even further, with youngsters wanting
the toy as a must-have present. Amazingly, the BBC has just
released a Doctor Doll that looks like actor Christopher Eccleston, who has just left the series. But fans of the Time Lord's adventures will have to wait until next
year until they can get their hands on a doll with 34-year-old David's characteristics. Slim and with sharp features, David, who was brought up in Ralston, has not had the
best of reactions to news that he is the next Doctor Who. Diehard fans of the series have variously described him as looking like a weasel and a geek. But David's distinguished Dad the Rev Dr Sandy MacDonald, a former Moderator
of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, defended his son, describing his son as "slim and handsome." And, as revealed in the Paisley Daily Express, Buddies also came to
his defence, with one smitten woman saying there was a mischievousness about him that she found attractive. However, it's unlikely the actor's looks will affect the sales of the
Doctor Who doll. Those most likely to have
it on their wish list are children and fanatical adult fans. A spokeswoman for the BBC said: "There are no definite plans for a David Tennant doll yet. But it could well happen
03/11/2005, 11:30am GMT
The BBC have officially confirmed that they wil be showing the
