Chain Reaction Air Date
The new series of Chain Reaction starts on 21st February at 18:30pm on BBC Radio 4.
The press release is as follows:

BBC Radio 4's talk show with a twist returns with a new series. It is tag-team interviewing with some of the brightest stars of the entertainment field.

Recorded in front of an audience, Chain Reaction dispenses with the formality of a regular host, and last week's interviewee becomes this week's interviewer instead.

Catherine Tate kicks off the chain in an interview with David Tennant. The following week, David Tennant interviews Richard Wilson. Richard then interviews Arabella Weir and, in the final week, Arabella interviews Paul Whitehouse.

The interviews focus on the life, career and passions of the interviewee but often prove to be as revealing about the interviewer. They also bring insights that listeners won't have heard before because of the unexpected questions that could only be asked by a peer.

Each interviewer also brings to the show their own unique style and each pairing has its own rapport which makes the whole series varied and exciting.

Press Round Up
Kent Online runs the story that members of the Tunbridge Wells Soroptimists are organising a Doctor Who themed knitathon.
On Saturday, March 8, adults and children are invited to each add a row of knitting to a scarf.
The finished scarf will be sent to David Tennant for his charcter of the Doctor to wear but Soroptimist member Judy Farnie, who is organising the event, said she had no idea how long it would be. As well as the knitathon, other knitted goods are being made in to sell during the event at the Oxfam shop in Mount Pleasant, Tunbridge Wells, between 11am and 3pm.
The knitathon and sale are being held to mark the United Nations International Women's Day and to raise funds for needy women and children in Sierra Leone.
Alan Carr mentions working with David on The Friday Night Project in a very funny interview with The Mirror.
Meanwhile David says that he managed to get the snog with Kylie Minogue written into Voyage Of The Damned. 
He says: "Getting Kylie on the show left me with stars in my eyes. I suggested the kiss, I might add. It wasn't in the script but I wasn't missing that for anything." have an interview with Theatre Newcomer of the Year nominee Colin Morgan who tells them that one of his favourite TV co stars was David.
"Big learning for me in television was with David Tennant on Doctor Who - he puts 110 percent into everything he does."

The Wiltshire Times has an small article on famous faces, including David, who have helped raise money for Crime Stoppers.

On Doctor Who:
"We're still working on the new series, but then I've got the whole of May off. I start rehearsals for Hamlet in Stratford-Upon-Avon in June, and I'm doing that from July until 9 January next year - on 10 January I'm back to Cardiff to start making the 2009 Doctor Who Specials. And after that I don't know. Nothing has been decided...honestly!"
On landing a film role:
"It's not something I'm thinking about. My aspirations don't really go beyond the next thing I'm doing. Besides I don't want to disappoint myself. But I would love to have been in a Robert Altman or Hitchcock film. Actually, there's a thought for Doctor Who - but who would you get to play Hitchcock?"
