Amazon have details on two of the new Doctor Who novels featuring David as the Tenth Doctor:
 
The Resurrection Casket
Starfall - a world on the edge, where crooks and smugglers hide in the gloomy shadows and modern technology refuses to work. The pioneers who used to be drawn by the hope of making a fortune from the mines can find easier picking elsewhere. But they still come - for the romance of it, or old-fashioned organic mining. Or in the hope of finding the lost treasure of Hamlek Glint - scourge of the spaceways, privateer, adventurer and bandit. Will the TARDIS ever work again? Is Glint's lost treasure waiting to be found? And does the fabled Resurrection Casket - the key to eternal life - really exist? With the help of new friends, and to the horror of new enemies, The Doctor and Rose aim to find out...

The Feast Of The Drowned
When a naval cruiser sinks in mysterious circumstances in the North Sea, all aboard are lost. Rose is saddened to learn that the brother of her friend, Keisha, was among the dead. And yet, he appears to them as a ghostly apparition, begging to be saved from the coming feast...the feast of the drowned. As the dead crew haunts loved ones all over London, the Doctor and Rose are drawn into a chilling mystery. What sank the ship, and why? When the cruiser's wreckage was towed up the Thames, what sinister force came with it? The river's dark waters are hiding an even darker secret, as preparations for the feast near their conclusion...

The Official Doctor Who site has the following info on the new issue of DWM which will be out on Thursday 2nd February:
In issue 366 of Doctor Who Magazine, Mark Gatiss talks about the challenges of writing for the new series - and for a new Doctor..."I'm completely thrilled for David Tennant," he says. "I think it's a brilliant choice, he's reached just the right stage of his career to do it, and he's a fantastic actor. And he loves it so much that he will completely embrace it and rise to the challenge.  "You know that story Sylvester McCoy used to tell about having been announced as the new Doctor, he went to a convention in Atlanta to be confronted with the question 'When you arrived on Peladon, what were you thinking when...?' Well, David is the first Doctor who could actually answer that!" There's a sneak peek at the making of the interactive adventure Attack of the Graske, with a host of previously unseen photos, whilst The Fact of Fiction looks at an earlier change of Doctor, in 1987's Time and the Rani. Also this issue, 1960s companion Maureen O'Brien tells DWM what she really thought about playing space orphan Vicki, how she prepared for the death of Sandy the Sand Beast, and why the original Doctor, William Hartnell, used to "snarl"! In the second part of the mag's new comic strip adventure, the Doctor and Rose run into more trouble with the Sontarans.

The Sun says:

David, 34, will voice Hamish in Free Jimmy, which also features Cheer's Woody Harrelson, Quadrophenia's Phil Daniels and actress Sam Morton. The film sells itself as "Four stoners, five vegans, hree mobsters, four hunters and a million reasons to free oe junkie elephant." What no daleks?
Meanwhile The Daily Star are trying to insinuate that David is a kleptomaniac:
Doctor Who star David Tennant claims he has his eye on some desirable props from the show.
Joker Tennant, 34, said: 'Bits of the TARDIS just come away in your hands sometimes - I mean there's a pension in there isn't there?'
A BBC spokesman sais: 'We'll look into i but I'm sure we would notice if bits of the TARDIS went missing.'

The Scotsman reports that David will be taking part in a one off stage production with the scripts having been written by children aged 10 to 12!
They say:
A LEADING concert venue is to stand in for the Scottish Parliament to play host to a major show heralding the launch of the National Theatre of Scotland. The Queen's Hall, on South Clerk Street, will stage a production promising a mock session of First Minister's Questions. Youngsters aged between ten and 12 will provide the scripts for the play, to be performed by a string of leading Scots actors, including Robbie Coltrane, Tilda Swinton and David Tennant. Director Anthony Neilson had hoped to stage Home Edinburgh at Holyrood, but the move was vetoed by parliament officials. The one-off production will be staged on February 25.

Thanks to Amo for pointing us in the direction of the following article on BBC News:
A fictional love story about the 1960 obscenity trial of DH Lawrence's book, Lady Chatterley's Lover, is to be screened on BBC Four. The drama sees two jurors at the famous Old Bailey trial fall in love under the influence of Lawrence's prose. The Chatterley Affair, written by Andrew Davies, is part of the winter/spring season on BBC Four. Other highlights include comedian Jack Dee in Lead Balloon, and a drama about Carry-on star Kenneth Williams.Lawrence's sexually explicit novel tells of Lady Chatterley's passionate affair with Mellors, the family gamekeeper, and details their erotic meetings. The book was published in Italy in 1928 and in Paris the following year, but was banned in the UK until 1960, following the much-publicised trial. In The Chatterley Affair, jurors Keith (Rafe Spall) and Helena (Louise Delamere) fall in love during the trial with their affair echoing that of Lady Chatterley and Mellors. Davies said the drama was purely fictional and that he had not spoken to any of the nine men and three women jurors. He said: "I hope it's going to be a fascinating mix of documentary, truth and imaginary truth. "I have respected what I suspect is the right thing, that you don't talk to jury members."
David will star as Richard Hoggart in the drama.

Colin Baker joins the long list of ex Doctor Who stars to heap praise onto David, quoted as saying:
'And I am glad to be able to confirm what I already knew that David Tennant would be an worthy recipient of the Tardis baton. He's grabbed it with both hands and has already given us exciting glimpses of a Doctor that embodies the familiar Time Lord characteristics of passion for justice, loyalty and compassion, whilst promising a greater self awareness, vulnerability and humour than his immediate predecessor. Tennant has also been blessed with not only considerable acting ability but compelling looks and an innate charm that will prove invaluable in retaining the viewers' interest when the series returns.'
Gosh! Perhaps we should offer him a membership to Team Tennant!

The Romantics will air on BBC2 at 20:00pm GMT on Saturday 21st January 2006.
The Radio Times website says:
Series presented by Peter Ackroyd about a group of visionary writers who changed the way we see the world, the Romantics and examines stories of bloodshed, political upheaval and poetry. He reveals how the radical ideas of liberty that inspired the French Revolution opened up a world of possibility for great British writers such as William Blake, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth, inspiring some of the greatest works of literature in the English language. Their ideas are the foundations of our modern notions of freedom and their words are performed by David Tennant, Dudley Sutton and David Threlfall.
Many thanks to Janet for the photo.

David has been voted sexiest male in the gay newspaper, The Pink Paper's, annual awards. He beat off tough competition from previous winner David Beckham and movie star Brad Pitt.
David told The Daily Star: "I'm surprised to be thought of like that. Casanova is the only role I've played where you had to look good. But that paricular Casanova didn't have to be an Adonis. He was more of a cheeky chappie."

Reported in Today's Guardian is the news that David will be playing the role of Richard Hoggart in a BBC dramatisation of Lady Chatterley's trial. In 1960, thirty years after D. H. Lawrence's death, Penguin moved to publish his most provocative novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover, for the first time. What followed was the most significant literary obscenity trial of the century, as Penguin called upon a string of expert witnesses to defend the book's literary merit.
Simon Hoggart, son of Richard and Guardian correspondant says:
Dad is played by the wonderful David Tennant (Blackpool, Casanova) who has carefully prepared his appearance by watching old interviews, even studying newspaper pictures of the time and having a picture of Dad on his mobile phone. He's extremely convincing - the suit, the hair, the Yorkshire accent, and trickiest of all, the speech rhythms. The only thing wrong is his sideburns. To do this film he had to take 24 hours off from making Doctor Who in Cardiff and, as he explained, the sideburns wouldn't grow back in a day.
There, I thought, was a kind of fame - to have researchers and costume directors pore over every detail of your appearance, then be seen in the witness box wearing Doctor Who's face furniture.
The drama will show on BBC4 in March 2006 and will be repeated on BBC2.

There was a small interview wih David in yesterday's Wales On Sunday in which he chats about the Doctor's romance with companion Rose, played by Billie Piper:
Doctor Who star David Tennant has revealed there will be no nookie with blonde beauty Billie Piper in the Tardis! While sparks flew between him and his assistant Rose in the BBC Wales-produced Christmas special, the 10th TV Doctor Who says there will be no hanky-panky in space. He told the Roast: "The story between the Doctor and Rose is basically a love story without sex. "That's certainly something we will continue to explore. But it's still absolutely celibate. I think that's very important. "As soon as there's nookie in the Tardis, it would all go wrong." David, 34, also revealed fans can look forward to learning more about the Doctor's sexuality in the much-awaited new series next spring. Swansea writer Russell T Davies caused controversy by introducing a bisexual character - Captain Jack Harkness played by John Barrowman - in the last series.  And David said: "The Doctor's sexuality is explored as well. We have a gentle probe into that side of the Doctor's life but without dismantling sacred churches along the way." Doctor Who took on Santa's assassins, an alien brass band and a killer Christmas tree in the special festive episode, which was filmed in Cardiff. In the first Christmas special since 1965, he even had a sword fight with the leader of evil aliens the Sycorax dressed in nothing but stripy pyjamas. David, who grew up in Scotland, has won the backing of fans since he took the role. But he added: "To turn up on the first day of a job like this is daunting because you can see your own five-year-old self sitting with your beans on toast watching the telly and being entranced back in the '70s. "To find yourself responsible for that... it does give you cause to take a deep breath."

David's role in The Romantics has been confirmed as Jean-Jacques Rousseau, in the episode 'Liberty'.
It should be shown at the end of January on BBC2. The BBC Press Office says:
David Tennant, David Threlfall and Dudley Sutton feature in the cast for this new series written and presented by acclaimed novelist and biographer Peter Ackroyd.
The English Romantic poets – from Blake, through to Coleridge, Wordsworth, Shelley, Byron and Keats – were at the forefront of a movement between 1760 and 1830 which would re-draw the political map of Europe and North America, expand the limits of the human imagination and radically impact the way people see the world today.
Episode one charts the development of the French Revolution and the birth of the individual in modern society.
The 18th century was a time of opulence and privilege. Europe was dominated by the twin authority of Church and King – but this absolute rule was soon to be overturned.
The French philosopher Denis Diderot, played by Jason Watkins, insisted that men must reason for themselves. His friend, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, played by David Tennant, said that civilisation had corrupted mankind – to free themselves, men must listen to their emotions.
Rousseau’s writings gave birth to a fresh hope for a new world of liberty, equality and fraternity.These ideas would fuel the greatest social upheaval in history – the French Revolution.
In Britain, these “Romantic” ideals would burst into the public arena in art and in poetry. William Blake’s engravings and poetry were howls of revolutionary anger: Blake, played by Dudley Sutton, made the liberation of the human spirit his life’s work.
William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote one of the most powerful revolutionary works of the time: the Lyrical Ballads.This volume of poetry was considered so dangerous that, even as they composed,Wordsworth and Coleridge were being followed by Government spies.
This was the greatest period of sustained creativity in English literature – a time of revolutionary changes in which poets had the power to remake the world in their own image.

The Stage has published its annual Top Ten Movers and Shakers "in the world of theatre and light entertainment" in the UK and David is No.6 on their list. They say:
"The cheeky Scotsman has had a tremendous year, creeping slowly but relentlessly into popular consciousness with one quirky primetime show after another. First up was the rather odd singing detective in BBC1’s Potteresque comic thriller Blackpool, then came the charismatic Casanova on BBC3. More recently he switched over to ITV1 for a stint as a deranged stalker in Secret Smile before jumping into the Tardis for the Corporation’s Christmas special. His transformation into the tenth Time Lord has made the nation sit up, take notice and ask, 'Christopher who?'"

"The 34-year-old from Paisley is the hottest man on TV at the moment after bagging the coveted role of Doctor Who Despite appearing in pyjamas in the Christmas special of the sci-fi show, he is sure to set hearts racing with his quirky good looks and brilliant acting. He's sizzling because... more than 10 million viewers will tune in on Christmas Day to witness his debut in the Tardis.

"Doctor Who", I Am a Dalek (Quick Reads S.)
www.Amazon.co.uk has revealed the cover of the new 'easy read' novel featurin David as the tenth doctor.
The blurb says:
Equipped with space suits, golf clubs and a flag, the Doctor and Rose are planning to live it up, Apollo mission-style, on the Moon. But the TARDIS has other plans, landing them instead in a village on the south coast of England; a picture-postcard sort of place where nothing much happens. Until now... An archaeological dig has turned up a Roman mosaic, circa AD 70, depicting mythical scenes, grapes - and a Dalek. A few days later a young woman, rushing for work, is knocked over and killed by a bus, then comes back to life. It's not long before all hell breaks loose, and the Doctor and Rose must use all their courage and cunning against an alien enemy - and a not-quite-alien accomplice - who are intent on destroying humanity. Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.

It wasn't just fans who loved The Christmas Invasion, the fabulous Christmas special, which saw David make his first real apperane as the Doctor went down a storm with the media too, in fact David even got the female journalist from the prestigious Times newspaper to go all 'fangirly' on him! Below are a few of our favourite quotes:
 
The Independent: 'The good news is that Tennant makes a winningly puckish Timelord.'
The Northern Echo: 'Tennant has a hard act to follow as Christopher Eccleston made the role his own even though he only hung around for one series. The signs are that the new Doctor will be just as good'
The Sun: 'The Timelord's battle against the ugly Sycorax really was the jewel in the BBC's crown yesterday. From the moment the Tardis hurtled out of the sky and crash landed in a council estate, you knew you were in for something special. New doc, David Tennant has not just stepped into Christopher Eccleston's impressive shoes, he jumped into them at full pelt.'
The Times: 'Personally, I don't know anyone who harboured a single doubt over Tennant making a totally splendid and, more importantly, very hot Doctor. And this complacency has proved to be wholly correct.'
 
The fabulous ratings that the show recieved, 9.4 million to be exact, made it the second most watched show of the day. It also got a 42.7 per cent audience share, meaning nearly half of all those watching TV tuned in. This fact was also highly reported by the UK press.
With The Daily Mail shouting: 'Doctor Who has emerged victorious from the Christmas ratings battle.'
