Freema Fantastic!
 
David has revealed that he is confident about Freema Agyeman becoming a hit with Doctor Who fans. She's already won us over!
He promises that Freema is "brilliant" and added that her character Martha Jones's instant crush on the Doctor will spice up the show.
"Freema is absolutely brilliant. She's pretty much hit the ground running," David tells today's Daily Star. "She has been so assured from day one that really there wasn't a second of worry. She's brilliant.
"I suppose you could say Martha's a bit more honest about what she is feeling than Rose ever was. But it's good because it's a format that's essentially static, so you've got to keep finding ways of looking at it from a different angle. I think the relationship between the Doctor and Martha is just different enough to move the story on."

As we previously reported, last month, David will be turning on the Blackpool Illuminations on 31st August, and it seems the people from Blackpool couldn't be happier!
Jackie Potter, Strategic Director, Tourism and Regeneration said: "We are absolutely delighted that David Tennant has accepted our invitation to switch on the Lights on Friday 31 August 2007.
"Blackpool's Switch On celebrations are enjoyed by a huge family audience and we are sure this will be a popular choice.
"The free concert during which he will throw the switch marks the start of Blackpool's Big Switch On Weekend.

David Smashes Up The TARDIS?!
 
Freema Agyeman has been telling What's On TV some backstage secrets: "David loves getting up to mischief and he's always breaking things off the TARDIS. We'll be in the middle of this dramatic scene and he'll reach to grab a lever or something and it will snap off in his hand.   We did this scene once when he had to throw the sonic screwdriver to me, but I dropped it, and it broke. We then spent ages arguing about whose fault it was!"

The Graham Norton Show
 
As you know David will be appearing on The Graham Norton Show tonight on BBC Two at 22:00pm.
David chats about the new series of Doctor Who and reveals some behind the scenes secrets:
 
"We get very competitive about farting in the tardis..." David jokes, "...farting before performing is a kind of exorcism. John feels the same way ... it's our Glasgow heritage. Freema really didn't like it, which spurred us on."

"Seriously though, it's the best job in the world, I'm having a ball. It's a big responsibility, people are very enthusiastic about it, and that can be a bit of an undertaking."

And as for the rumoured Doctor nuptials, David says: "It's very difficult to answer – he doesn't not get married."

Graham also welcomes to the show comedienne Jo Brand, who joins David in reminiscing about their separate exploits for this year's Comic Relief.

David, who had a walk-on as part of the audience in The Proclaimers' video, reveals he didn't actually meet his favourite group on the day – "Matt Lucas knew I was a big Proclaimers fan ... I didn't really know what I was turning up for and it was an interesting collection of people ... but the band had been and gone by the time I arrived.

"I was devastated, so tonight I'm a bit over-excited..." – and proceeds to meet his musical heroes on the show when The Proclaimers perform their number one hit I'm Gonna Be 500 Miles.

David A New National Treasure?

The Telegraph are today pondering the fact that Sir Elton John has been crowned "A National Treasure" and are wondering which other famous faces might follow in his foot steps and be worthy of the title or indeed be more worthy of the title. They have come up with a list of nominees they think are the real National Treasures and David is on there alongside his former co star Billie Piper. They say: He brought a new edgy humour to the elderly Dr Who format. His native Scots distrust of 'going over the top' will keep him accessible and his smart sexiness makes him a long term treasure.

New Projects
 
David will be working on some new projects during his break in filming Doctor Who.
Cheerful Weather For The Wedding will see him team up with The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt in an adaptation of the 1930's novel by Julia Strachey. It tells the tale of a woman from a dysfunctional family who is marrying the wrong man.
 
He has also signed to appear as Sir Arthur Eddington in a BBC and HBO Films collaboration called Einstein and Eddington.
British scientist Sir Arthur Eddington (Tennant) was one of the most prominent astrophysicists in the first decades of the 20th century and the first physicist who understood Einstein's ideas of relativity.
Einstein and Eddington kept a correspondence while their countries squared off in World War I. Because of the military conflict, no new developments in German science were being made known to the rest of the world. So it was Eddington's 1920 article, which offered proof of the relativity theory of gravitation using data from the 1919 solar eclipse, that introduced Einstein's theory of general relativity to the English-speaking world.
"Einstein and Eddington" was written by Peter Moffat, with Philip Martin set to direct. The two worked together on "Hawking," the BBC's 2004 biopic of Stephen Hawking, who is considered the greatest mind in physics since Einstein and took Einstein's general relativity theory one step further, unifying it with quantum theory.

Press Launch Update
 
The press continue to report on Wednesday's launch with a fantastic look at the Q&A session courtesy of The Stage:
 

RTD: Hello, I’m Nadine Baggott! (to DT, explaining who she is) She minces on about moisturiser.

RTD: We’re not going to answer any questions about Series 4… if you do [ask], I’ll come down there and slap you!

Question: Does the Doctor get married in Series 3?
DT (pondering the question): Yeeess…
RTD: All suspense, gone…
DT: He doesn’t not… That’s actually quite a difficult question to give you a truthful answer to.
RTD: Where’s Jessica Stevenson? (scans audience) She didn’t turn up!

Sam (Jo Whiley’s son): Did Yvonne Hartman [played by Tracy Ann Oberman] get sucked into the void?
DT: Let’s ask her!
TAO: I got turned into a Cyberperson. Although, frankly, Russell, listen…
RTD: For the rest of your life!
DT: Would you like to see her again? Well, she’s on the Weakest Link on Friday!
RTD: She’s too posh now, she’s got a column in the Guardian and everything! How to lose weight after having a baby. I follow it religiously.

RTD, to Daily Star reporter: The man who invented ‘Britney Spears is going to be in Doctor Who as a sex mad clone’. Were you bored that day, Peter? What was going on? You just made it up, didn’t you!
Star reporter: On a very serious note — David and Freema, when you had to kiss, did either of you slip the tongue in?

Jonathan Ross: You know, watching on the big screen with the sound, I thought, this has got to be a movie. It’d be great to have a Doctor Who film. Have you got any plans?
RTD: There are, er, we really haven’t got hours in the day to— I haven’t even got time for breakfast, let alone anything else. One day! One day, and it will be brilliant. But you know, we say that and then they come along and they say…
DT: “It’s got to have Britney Spears in it!”
RTD: And it would become a piece of trash…
DT: Not that we wouldn’t love to have Britney Spears in Doctor Who. I just want to slip that in.
RTD: As a good, bald alien… (to Ross) Give us the money, then. You’ve got it!
JR: I’m funding the Primeval movie.
RTD: ITV’s answer to Doctor Who!… We’re the BBC’s answer to Primeval!

South Wales Echo: What’s the best thing about filming in South Wales?
(pause)
(laughter)

Young boy: When are you going to go to the 1980s?
RTD: I never left!

Boy: Are you ever going to go back in time and meet Jesus?
RTD: Every year I hand that script in, every year… and he’s gay!

They also have a fantastic podcast from the night here.

Meanwhile The Daily Star say that the episode one monsters, the Judoon and the evil  Plasmavore, were too scary for kids at the launch of the show with children including Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley's kids fleeing in terror. Jo admitted "We lasted ten minutes, the kids were terrified." Also at the bash were Catherine Tate and Tracy-Ann Oberman.

David spoke to DigitalSpy at the launch and told them that he would be up for the idea of past Doctor's appearing with him in a future episode:

 "Sure... it's a lovely idea, but I just don't know about the practicalities of it, really. It's one of those shows and because it goes on for a long time it has this history. It gets tougher though... as the years move on," Tennant continued. "Let's be honest, we've lost three, unfortunately," he added, referring to the fact that William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee - the first three actors to play the role - have all passed away.

David reminisced about the impact such a reunion show had on him as a young fan, specifically the 1983 90-minute special: "I remember as a kid 'The Five Doctors' being the most important thing that had ever happened, so it's a nice idea. I just don't know if practically we could make it happen again."

You can also watch David and Freema chatting to BBC news online here.

The Doctor Who Series Three Launch
This report contains spoilers!!!
 
As you all know it was the launch of Series Three of Doctor Who last night.
The launch took place in London where press and celebs were invited to get the very first look at the Doctor and Martha on their adventures.
They were shown two episodes, Smith and Jones and The Shakespeare Code.
We have a collection of articles and reviews, but do be warned not to read them if you don't want to know too much about the first two episodes of the series.

David and his co star Freema Agyeman both attended and spent alot of time chatting to TV and Press about the new series.

David spoke about playing the Doctor, he said: "It is unlike anything else, Doctor Who, it does get a level of analysis unlike pretty much any other acting job I can think of, except maybe James Bond."

And when asked whether he would be staying for the now officially confirmed fourth series of the show he said "The first question I got asked was when are you leaving, I mean it's mental the amount of attention that gets. I think one learns from Tony Blair not to announce your resignation until it's imminent."

And there are a few challenges for the doctor...

"There are a few emotional rolleroasters for the Doctor in this series, probably more than we've seen before and I think that might surprise a few people, but it's good, in a way the character of the Doctor must always stay the same, so it's quite nice to just nudge that and play with it."

There's also a mysterious newcomer to watch out for....Mr Saxon.

David says: "Yeah the mysterious Mr Saxon, who we learn little bits about all the way through the series and at the very end we find that he's played by John Simm, from Life On Mars and many other things, and he's more than a match for the Doctor in a way that the Doctor never even thought could be possible."

   

One particular scene of Smith and Jones certainly grabbed the attention of everyone at the screening. The Doctor and his new travelling companion Martha sharing a 'kiss' which is in fact a genetic transfer.  But there is romance for the Doctor in later episodes, which may leave Martha feeling a tad jealous. The Doctor is said to be seen getting married in a flash back sequence. David says "Yes. He gets married. Well, he doesn't not. Actually, it's quite difficult to answer that question truthfully."

What you can look forward to tonight!

This year will see the biggest roll call of top presenters ever! Jonathan Ross, Russell Brand, Lenny Henry, Davina McCall, Graham Norton, Chris Evans, Paul O'Grady, Fearne Cotton and Kate Thornton will be beaming live into your living room on a night guaranteed to keep you glued to your couch.

You can see Kate Moss make an appearance as Vicky Pollard's sister in Comic Relief Does Little Britain Live and Dennis Waterman finally meets his mini version and gets to sing the theme tune!

You'll be wiping away the tears of laughter and sadness when Dawn French dons the collar one final time, and it really is the last one, in a special Vicar Of Dibley written by Richard Curtis and featuring an A-list visitor to the village – the one and only Sting.

Richard Curtis also got behind the camera to film a brand new Mr Bean sketch especially for the Big One. This time the loveable yet clumsy Bean finds himself at the wedding of an unsuspecting couple played by Michelle Ryan and Matthew MacFadyen. Expect mishaps and mayhem as well as a very angry father of the bride played by David Haig.

Catherine Tate has teamed up with Lenny Henry and Doctor Who star David Tennant as well as some other surprise guests for some un-missable new sketches.

Of course it wouldn't be Red Nose Day without some of your favourite TV shows getting the Comic Relief treatment.

Tune in to see the conclusion of Comic Relief Does The Apprentice – two teams will be battling it out in a Sir Alan Sugar style girls v boys showdown.

Doing their very best not to be fired or even get torn off a strip in the boardroom will be Cheryl Cole, Rupert Everett, Maureen Lipman, Jo Brand, Ross Kemp, Trinny Woodall, Alastair Campbell, Karren Brady, Piers Morgan and Danny Baker.

The two hottest girl bands on the planet have teamed up for this year's official Red Nose Day single. Sugababes and Girls Aloud will be releasing their version of the Run DMC/ Aerosmith classic Walk This Way. Expect an electrifying performance from the girls on the night!

Comic Relief Does Fame Academy is back by popular demand and only two celebrities will be left standing and rasping to battle it out and follow in Edith Bowman's footsteps to win the viewers' votes, raise some cash and be crowned champion.

Presenters Patrick Kielty and Claudia Winkleman will be on hand to protect them from the judges' comments. Sparks and microphones will fly...

Harry Hill will provide us with a special Comic Relief themed TV Burp, Armando Ianucci presents his worst moments from Comic Relief while Simon Pegg and Nick Frost present their favourite Red Nose Day clips.

The Mighty Boosh bring their own brand of anarchic humour live to the Comic Relief studio, and Mitchell and Webb will also treat us to two live versions of popular sketches from their hit BBC Two show.

Tune in for a very special surprise from Peter Kay, plus see Ricky Gervais as you've never seen him before.

There will be some new Creature Comforts from Aardman Animations who have also teamed up with cutting-edge comic Marc Wooton to create an exclusive new character.

Tim Westwood and the crew of MTV's hit show Pimp My Ride UK, made a special pit stop to surprise the elderly ladies of Leek, Staffordshire, with news that their shabby, rust-encrusted mini-bus was to be pimped. Tune into the show to see the result of all their hard work.

The Big One will also feature the biggest names in music.

Two of the greatest bands in the world today - Take That and The Killers - will perform live.

There will also be special reports from Billy Connolly and Ant & Dec.

During the night viewers will also see how their money has helped Comic Relief make a real difference to vulnerable people in the UK and Africa.

Newsround Report
 
 
The latest edition of the CBBC Newsround Blog has some news on David after their presenter, Lizo, bumped into him whilst filming some episodes of Doctor Who Confidential. He says:
 
Another fab thing about working at the BBC's TV studios is that you bump into all sorts of interesting people. And this afternoon I was on my way to get a late lunch when I spotted David Tennant - Dr Who himself - being interviewed by a TV crew.

Despite being one of the famous faces on TV, David's always really friendly and he bounded over to say hello. And we had a quick chat about the new series.

He also gave away a few snippets about what he was doing here. He was filming for the fab behind the scenes show Dr Who Confidential which comes on BBC3 straight after each episode. In fact, he was doing the whole episode himself - and it was all about the 10th story in the new series which is called Blink.

The team filming with David, from the camera crew to the boss, Gillane, were all really great as well - I love chatting to fellow Dr Who fans. I tried to overhear a bit of what David was talking about during the filming, but could only catch a few snippets. Which I'd better not repeat here.

David's been filming since last summer, and revealed that filming will finally finish at the end of this week. But he did promise me that series 3 will be 'bigger and better than ever'.

Radio Wales Q&A
 
Radio Wales want your questions to ask the cast and crew of doctor Who for a show. They say:

Radio Wales' totally Doctor Who show Doctor Who Back In Time will return on Saturday 30 March, with 'New Rose' a special thirty-minute episode previewing season three of Doctor Who and focussing on his new companion Martha Jones.

There will be another programme looking at the unique Welsh contribution to the show and the effect Doctor Who has on Wales through boosting the local economy and offering opportunities to Welsh talent. The final show of the run will be Interrogation where the fans set the questions.

Doctor Who Back In Time wants your help to make the next series. We want your questions for the cast and crew for a special one-off programme called Interrogation, where the fans take over and get to ask all the things you've always wanted to ask about Doctor Who.

You can quiz David Tennant, Russell T Davies, the stunt men, the people who make the monsters, the special effects team... anyone you like.

All we need you to do is to email us your question, tell us who you want to answer it and then leave your name and address and a contact email. If you are one of the lucky inquisitors selected we'll try to record you asking your question and get it answered on air.

* Quiz – Discover if you’ve got what it takes to travel in the TARDIS by taking our companion quiz.

* PLUS posters, puzzles and adventure on every page!
