Doctor Who Press Launch
The press launch for series three of Doctor Who will take place at The Mayfair Hotel in London on Wednesday 21st March.
David will be attending as will his new co star Freema Agyeman and Russell T Davies.
It will be the first screening of the first episode Smith and Jones to the UK press.
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'.
- Read the rest of Lizo's blog here.
Signed Script Up For Auction
David's personal script from the Doctor Who series 2 episode, The Satan Pit, is going to auction on Wednesday 28th March.
