Episode 10, Do You Remember The First Time?, which will air after the  Doctor Who episode Blink, will be a very special episode with David's own personal account of the making of the show:
 
Do you remember the first time? - This week, David Tennant directs his very own Doctor Who Confidential. TV's top Time Lord has been given complete control to film his own very personal account of the making of Doctor Who and to take a nostalgic voyage of discovery to find out the secret behind the success of Doctor Who.

In this unique piece of television, David roams around the BBC, talking to cast and crew and fans of the show, uncovering the secret behind the success of Doctor Who.

From BBC bosses through to the Dead Ringers team, David is hunting for what makes Doctor Who so magical. He chats to the Daleks in the Blue Peter Garden, and discusses with Mark Gatiss the joy of playing a Doctor Who monster in the Lazarus Experiment.

Head writer, Russell T Davies and producer, Phil Collinson chat with David about how they've always had such fondness for the show and how it inspired their creative drive. Executive producer Julie Gardner and drama commissioner Jane Tranter reveal how and why the series was brought back and the unprecedented response it's had.

Stephen Moffat joins David on a hunt around Television Centre, looking for the studios where the classic series was filmed. They end up on the set of Newsnight.

Confidential also features exclusive backstage footage of Blink; one of the scariest episodes to date and candid chats with two of the week's most prominent stars, Carey Mulligan and Finlay Robertson who talk to David about their experience working on the show and on becoming part of the Doctor Who legacy.

Congratulations! David Wins Best Actor Award At Bafta Cymru!
 
David Tennant arriving at the ceremony
 
David and a whole host of Doctor Who and Torchwood cast crew attended the Bafta Cymru Awards at Cardiff International Arena last night and Doctor Who cleaned up after winning eight of the thirteen categories they were nominated for, which included the Best Actor award for David and the Best Screenwriter award for Russell T Davies.
Doctor Who's accolades this year included: best lighting director - not camera; best editor; best original music soundtrack; best make-up; best costume, and best director: drama.
On arriving at the event David, who was wearing a suit and summer shirt, said:
"I think I look suitably sartorially elegant. You've got to, haven't you, when you come to these posh dos? But I've just actually seen a piece of paper with the e-mail on that says this is a black tie event. I hope they don't throw me out. I'll have to borrow one from somebody else. If you see somebody sat on a table in an ill-fitting suit you'll know what's happened."
Doctor Who spin off Torchwood also walked away with an armful of accolades including Best Actress which went to Eve Myles.
BBC Wales Controller Meena Richards said  "Congratulations to all of the winners. I'm very proud indeed of the success of all those who've made such wonderful programmes for BBC Wales. It's great to see BAFTA Cymru recognising the talents of all those who make programmes of the highest possible standards."
 
Details of the other episodes can be seen at the Doctor Who Confidential site.

Doctor Who V Torchwood At Tomorrow's Bafta Cymru Awards
 
The great and the good will be at Cardiff International Arena tomorrow night to find out who has won the 2007 Bafta Cymru Awards. Among them will be screenwriter Russell T Davies who will see his two hit dramas – Doctor Who and Torchwood – go head-to-head in seven categories.
A you already know David has been nominated in the best actor category alongside his Doctor Who co star and Torchwood leading man, John Barrowman.
The Western Mail take a look at who they think will win and why:
 
When Doctor Who returned to our screens in 2005, everyone wondered how an actor could possibly fill the shoes of previous Timelords like Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee and Peter Davidson. Luckily Christopher Eccleston did just that – but promptly left after one series. However, David Tennant was drafted in as his replacement and many feel that the Scottish actor is the ultimate Doctor. One of the reasons was the great chemistry he had with Billie Piper as his assistant Rose. He’s also bonded well with newcomer Freema Agyeman.
 
Before Torchwood even reached our screens, John Barrowman had proved popular as Captain Jack Harkness after the character appeared in an episode of Doctor Who. In fact, he proved so popular that Russell T Davies decided to pen the spin-off. Just like the Doctor, he takes on the alien world and has real chemistry with his team, especially Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper.
 

The verdict: “How do you choose? Once again this one is judged on the finales of both series. John Barrowman was great. Although viewers thought he was immortal, in this particular episode you thought he really could die. But I think David Tennant has the edge. It was the episode in which he said goodbye to Rose and it tugged at my heart strings. He really is fantastic.”

Winner: David Tennant Doctor Who

"If you had to make a poll of monsters least likely to make a reappearance," grins David Tennant, "the Macra would probably be fairly near the top!"

"So it's kind of cool, isn't it?" he tells Doctor Who Magazine as they go behind the scenes of Gridlock. "If you're gonna do giant crabs, there's no point them being anything other than Macra, seeing as they already exist.

"It's one of the joys of being involved with a series which has got all this history for free. You can just sprinkle in all these nuggets of recognition for those who'll get them."

Elswhere, the David vs Freema Shakespeare Quotes Quiz separates the Bards from the boys.

"It's unfair, 'cos David's done loads of Shakespeare," says Freema. "I hope my old English teacher doesn't read this..."

101 Things Didn't Know About Doctor Who
(Well you migh have done..)
 
ic Wales has a rather interesting article from today's Western Mail '101 Things You Didn't Know About Doctor Who'.
The facts range from the interesting: David Tennant and Freema Agyeman filmed the special trailers for series three on their day off. It took eight hours to record a 40-second promo.
To the obvious: Torchwood, the show's spin-off, is an anagram of the words Doctor Who.
I'm sure a lot of fans will know all these facts already but for the newer Whovians it's a good way to swot up!

New Doctor And Martha Novels
 
Three more Tenth Doctor and Martha novels have been announced for release on 6th September:
 
Wetworld
When the TARDIS makes a disastrous landing in the swamps of the planet Sunday, the Doctor has no choice but to abandon Martha and try to find help. But the tranquillity of Sunday's swamps is deceptive, and even the TARDIS can't protect Martha forever.
The human pioneers of Sunday have their own dangers to face: homeless and alone, they're only just starting to realise that Sunday's wildlife isn't as harmless as it first seems. Why are the native otters behaving so strangely, and what is the creature in the swamps that is so interested in the humans, and the new arrivals? The Doctor and Martha must fight to ensure that human intelligence doesn't become the greatest danger of all.
 
Sick Building
Tiermann's World: a planet covered in wintry woods and roamed by sabre-toothed tigers and other savage beasts. The Doctor is here to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife and their son that a terrible danger is on its way.
The Tiermann's live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully-automated Dreamhome, under an impenetrable force shield. But that won't protect them from the Voracious Craw. A gigantic and extremely hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly toward their home. When it gets there everything will be devoured.
Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up, and the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate...
 
Forever Autumn
It is almost Halloween in the sleepy New England town of Blackwood Falls. Autumn leaves litter lawns and sidewalks, paper skeletons hang in windows, and carved pumpkins leer from stoops and front porches.
The Doctor and Martha soon discover that something long-dormant has awoken in the town, and this will be no ordinary Halloween. What is the secret of the ancient chestnut tree and the mysterious book discovered tangled in its roots? What rises from the local churchyard in the dead of night, sealing up the lips of the only witness? And why are the harmless trappings of Halloween suddenly taking on a creepy new life of their own?
As nightmarish creatures prowl the streets, the Doctor and Martha must battle to prevent both the townspeople and themselves from a grisly fate...
 
And don't forget that the first three Doctor and Martha novels are released tomorrow!
 
 
Gridlock Updates

Possible Delay For The Doctor
 
 
As you all know Doctor Who is scheduled for a later airing, 19:40pm, this Saturday, but it has now been revealed that it won't be shown at all if the FA Cup Semi Final goes into extra time.
BBC One is showing Watford's clash with Manchester United before the drama, and says it will postpone the show to make way for any extra play or penalties.
A spokeswoman said the programme could not be broadcast after extra time as it would be "too late" for younger fans.
Saturday's episode features comedian Ardal O'Hanlon as a guest star. If it is postponed, it will have a knock-on effect on BBC Three's schedules for the rest of the week.  Behind-the-scenes show Doctor Who Confidential, which normally goes out straight after the BBC One programme, will also be postponed for a week. It will be replaced by Rose - the very first episode of the revamped Doctor Who series from 2005.
The BBC says the decision on whether to pull this week's show from the Saturday evening schedule will be made "on the day".
On a happier note the BBC Doctor Who Site has been given a new 'Gridlock' make over and has some fun content to keep you busy!

David To Star In New BBC Comedy, Learners
 
David Tennant is to star in Learners, a BBC Films production for BBC One, which is written by, and will also star Jessica Hynes (nee Stevenson).
This warm, bitter–sweet comedy drama, follows the trials and tribulations of a group of learner drivers.
Bev (Jessica Hynes, Spaced) is a downtrodden wife who's failed her driving test eight times. She's desperate to pass yet frustrated at her husband Ian's (Shaun Dingwall, Doctor Who) impatient approach when teaching her to drive.
When Bev meets glamorous driving school owner Fiona (Sarah Hadland, Confetti), she's determined to succeed, along with a group of other learner drivers.
Chris (David Tennant, Doctor Who), a devout Christian with the patience of a saint, is assigned as her instructor and it's not long before Bev develops a crush on him. However, Chris has feelings for Fiona, but she's having an affair with a married man Gerry, who works with Bev.
Jessica comments: "It took me ten years to pass my test – this year I finally did it so I could do the film! I had a great instructor, he taught me to take my time and relax, when I passed I cried with joy!"
Producer Ruth Caleb, Director Francesca Joseph, Jessica Hynes, Shaun Dingwall and Executive Producer David Thompson are reunited on Learners following their collaboration on Tomorrow La Scala, which scooped the award for best drama at the 2003 Indie Awards.
Jessica also received RTS, Bafta and Lawrence Olivier Award nominations for Best Actress.
Learners will start filming in April 2007 on location in Hertfordshire and will transmit later this year.
The Executive Producer is David Thompson, the Producers are Ruth Caleb (Born Equal, Bullet Boy) and Luke Alkin (Dirty War, The Allotment), and the Director is Francesca Joseph (Tomorrow La Scala!, Four Last Songs). Learners was commissioned by Jane Tranter, Controller, BBC Fiction for BBC One.
