Rumours on the new series of Doctor Who are abounding in the press again, according to The Daily Star, Russell T Davies has decided not to bring Captain Jack back for Series 2 as he thinks he will get in the way of a blossoming relationship between the Doctor and Rose, however he said tht he may be seen again in Series 3!
Stephen Fry is also in the frame for writing an episode of the new series, which would be excellent news, if it comes about.

Thanks to Kate who told us thatThe Daily Mirror are reporting that David may be speaking with his native Scots accent in the new series of Doctor Who. They say:
"New Dr Who David Tennant will speak in his Scots accent in the next series of the show. Scottish fans were shocked to hear the Paisley-born Tennant speaking in posh English tones during his debut as the Doctor last Saturday. It was all the more surprising because Tennant had said he hoped to give the role a tartan flavour. The accent sparked an outcry among Scottish Who fans and now producer Russell T Davies has hinted Tennant will be speaking naturally come his first full adventure at Christmas. He said: 'Every planet has a Scotland. You'll have to wait and see, there are revelations on the way.' The line about Scotland refers back to when Billie Piper asked why the Doctor - as then played by Christopher Eccleston - sounded Mancunian and he replied: 'Every planet has a North.' A BBC insider said: 'The accent will be up to what Russell and David want to do during filming."

Thanks to Dale who e-mailed us about David's interview at The Glastonbury Festival which was shown on BBC THREE last night. David was heading off to see The Proclaimers on the Avalon stage, he said he was rather smelly and scruffy and that he hoped his Mum wouldn't see him like that! He also said that he looked a state and that it was his usual kind of thing but that he got the vibe.
It was also hinted there will be an explanation for his lack of Scottish accent in the new series of Doctor Who and that we should all just wait and see....

Last night saw the BAFTA screening of 'The Parting Of The Ways' at the Princess Anne Theatre in London. If you would like to know what happens in the last episode of the current series and find out what David's first words as the Tenth Time Lord will be click here!
In a question and answer session after the screening the BBC  confirmed that they aim to have Series 2 on our screens in around March 2006 and  series 3 will follow in 2007, each series will have 13 episodes and 2 Christmas Specials.
Russell T Davies announced that Billie Piper will be staying with the show for the whole of Series 2 at the least, and that Series 2 will include trips to alien planets and the return of the Cybermen!
Talking to SFX magazine about what he thought David would bring to the role he said:
"His sheer David Tennantness. Look at him, he can do anything! And he will! This is the wonderful legacy of Chris Eccleston, he's made the part desirable to our finest actors. I'm not gonna talk to much about the tenth Doctor, 'cause the great joy of this year was that as transmission approached, no one really knew what a Chris Eccleston Doctor was going to be like. And it was a great surprise. So I'm gonna do the same with David. I'm not going to analyse him to death before you've had the chance to see him."
He also commented on whther David's Doctor would have different charcteristics to Chris Eccleston:
"The clothes will be different, 'cause it'll be David's preferences. We'd never ask him to inherit clothes from a previous Doctor. We've already talked about it in deatil and David had very precise ideas, which sound fantastic!"
Steven Moffat who wrote the two Blitz set episodes of this year's Doctor Who clearly thinks they've got the right man he told SFX "The first time I saw David Tennant he was in Blackpool. I e-mailed Russell and said 'There's Doctor Ten', but before you think I'm too clever, Russell replied 'You're not the first person to say it - in fact you're the fourth!'.
For the full interviews with Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat get this months SFX magazine out now!
*NB We have opened our new Doctor Who section today, obviously this will grow when the filming starts and the series is aired :o)

We're delighted to say that David Tennant won the Best Actor award at yestersdays Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotalnd (CATS). He picked up the premier accolade for stage acting in his native Scotland.
The award was for for his portrayal of Jimmy Porter in John Osborne’s Look Back in Anger in a Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, production earlier this year.
Accepting the award at the Tollbooth in Stirling, he said it was a play he had always loved, adding: “To get a prize as well seems almost unjust. I am especially grateful to the rest of the cast, the best playmates any actor could have.”
The judges said: "David Tennant's performance swept us off our feet, electrifying and mesmerising as he paced the stage like a caged animal. Whether he was perching on furniture or strutting dictator-like, it was impossible to take your eyes off him as he summoned up the hateful but irresistible Jimmy Porter".
Congratulations David!
We have added some pics from the ceremony here and you can read a couple of articles about the win here.

The last two episodes of the latest series of Doctor Who can be seen on BBC One. This Saturday 11th June 2005, ' Bad Wolf ' will be shown and next Saturday 18th June 2005 the final episode ' Parting Of The Ways ' will air, they are well worth tuning in for as they will be the build up to the dramatic Dalek War that will see the regeneration of the Doctor and the take over of the role by David Tennant.
The photo below shows the Doctor, currently played by Christopher Eccleston, shown as a hologram in the last episode after a dramatic battle with the daleks.
The BBC have issued the following press release for ' The Parting Of The Ways ' :
The Doctor's travels reach a terrifying conclusion as the Earth is plunged into an all out war, in the final episode of the popular series written by Russell T Davies.
Rose Tyler has faced danger and seen wonders alongside the Doctor, but now their friendship is put to the test as Earth plunges into an epic war. With the human race being slaughtered, the Doctor is forced into terrible actions. Will the time travellers ever be reunited?
Thanks to Lynn for saying that rumours are abounding that David may well appear in 'The Parting Of The Ways'  on Doctor Who fansites. I don't know the likelyhood of that as most sources seem to say that his first appearance will be in the Christmas Special, but you never know, fingers crossed eh!
Meanwhile yet another BBC spokesman, (they must have them stored in cupboards they seem to have so many!), has confirmed that although Billie Piper will return to star alongside David in Series Two they can not confirm for how many episodes as they are still awaiting confirmation the storylines.
David has speaking about his new role too.  He was asked how long he'd been signed to appear in Doctor Who. In response he said "Let's get through one at a time. I'd love to do 100 years but they might sack me." He added: "The expectations are fierce".

David is currently featured in the latest issues of Hello! and OK! magazine. Hello! has a feature about the Billie Piper 'will she won't she quit Doctor Who' story saying that despite the fact that she had lunch with David at The Wolsey restarant in London she is still leaving the show. Billie has of course since denied this rumour and confirmed she has not quit and will continue to play Rose Tyler next season.
OK! has much the same report saying the usual thing that Billie is going and suggesting replacements if she does go. They also referred to David as Neil Tennant, who if I'm not mistaken is actually the lead singer from the Pet Shop Boys! Both magazines are out now!
04/06/2005, 16:35pm GMT
I have adeed a new Radio section to the site for info on the radio shows that David will be doing. 
I've also uploaded 4 brand new exclusive wallpapers to the Downloads section.
Many thanks to Kay for sending us some fabulous photos of David in the film  we've just uploaded them for your viewing pleasure.
I've tracked down a couple of new DVDs that feature David there's the 'Lesson In Murder' episode of Foyle's War and the British comedy Being Considered you can buy them through links in our Shop.
And we're pleased to say the message board is now fully functional and back online here!

The BBC have issued the following press release:
Fifty years after he uttered his first "Evenin' all", the most beloved of British bobbies is back on the beat on BBC Radio 4. PC George Dixon – star of TV's longest-running police series – returns to Dock Green for six new stories, updated for a modern audience, with David Calder in the title role.
"The announcement about the radio series really seemed to capture people's imaginations," says Calder, pictured above with co stars Charlie Brooks and David Tennant. "It took me by surprise at first, but of course so many people have good memories of the original. It's delightful to be revisiting something that's so well-known and loved."

Russell T Davies is in the latest issue of the Radio Times talking about whether he thinks David will make a different type of Doctor to Christopher Eccleston...
'He'll be different. He'll have his own traits. I'm writing that
now. The marvellous thing is that the Doctor is still fundamentally
the Doctor, no matter what happens to him. What's good about having
a new lead actor is it stops anyone getting complacent, because it
has to be as good for David's sake.'
