Tennant Not On The Net!
30/06/2006, 09:0am BST
Further to our recent warnings of hoax posts made by a David Tennant imposter
on various forums and via email, the BBC have issued a warning via their Who site:
There have been several recent cases of people posing as David Tennant in internet chat rooms.
David has not made any of these postings because he does not enter into correspondence about the programme or anything
else on the internet.
The BBC would strongly advise all Doctor Who fans to ignore any such postings and not be fooled by impersonators
- it will never be David Tennant who has made the posting.
To read this statement on the BBC site click here. If you do spot anyone on any forums or chat sites impersonating David simply post the link back to the BBC site so that
other fans know that it isn't him.
To chat to other fans safely please use our heavily moderated forums.

The BBC have issued the following statement revealing that Billie Piper
has quit Doctor Who:
Award-winning Piper to depart at the end of series two. Billie Piper is leave Doctor Who in the nail-biting series two
finale. Over the past two years, Billie has taken the character of Rose Tyler on an adventure of a lifetime, travelling across
the galaxy with the Doctor. "Rose and I have gone on the most incredible journey with Russell T Davies and the cast and crew
of Doctor Who over the past two years," said Billie.
"It has been an amazing adventure, and I can confirm it comes to an end, for now at least, as series two climaxes.
"I am truly indebted to Russell for giving me the chance to play Rose Tyler, and to all the Doctor Who fans old and new
who have been so supportive of me in this amazing role. Thank you so much."
Russell T Davies, writer and Executive Producer adds: "It has been a wonderful experience working with Billie –
we will miss her – and wish her all the success in the world for her future.
"However, the Doctor Who team have had a whole year to plan this final scene and have created a stunning exit for Rose
"The Doctor lives a dangerous life and when Rose joined him on his adventures she was aware of this. With a series climax
called Doomsday on its way, I can't guarantee who will survive and who won't, but I can assure you the TARDIS is going on
its scariest journey yet!"
Since taking on the role of Rose Tyler, Billie has received both critical and popular acclaim. She was awarded The National
Television Award for Most Popular Actress 2005 and The South Bank Show's Breakthrough Award for Rising British Talent.
Billie is currently filming the BBC's adaptation of multi award-winning writer Philip Pullman's The Ruby In The Smoke

There are a couple of news stories today including this one from ITV.com:
A host of celebs have been telling us if they are supporting England this World Cup - and for Scottish actor David Tennant
the choice is easy. The Dr Who star said: "I don't get football it just leaves me cold. It's got nothing to do with England,
Scotland anyone else, I just don't get it. "I know there's the traditional Scottish thing that you can't support England but
I've lived here for 12 years so I've got to try." And Welsh songstress Charlotte Church is equally happy to lend the England
team her support, not being much of a footie fan either. She said: "I don't care, Wayne Rooney, so what. But Coleen - I really
like her. "I'm Welsh but good luck to the English. I mean it sincerely. The rugby England/Wales thing is different. But football
I don't care so good luck to you." And radio DJ Edith Bowman, also Scottish, said: "I like playing on that Scottish people
don't cheer on England thing. Generally we do."
The Doctor Who site also has some news regarding series 3 of the show:
We might be more than halfway through the spectactular second series of Doctor Who, but plans are already well underway
for the thrilling third series! At the BBC Worldwide Licensing Showcase event held this week in St Albans, Doctor Who's Executive
Producer Julie Gardner gave the assembled delegates a few exciting hints about what's to come. "We're in pre-production on
Doctor Who 3", she said. "We'll be filming for 34 weeks, beginning with a Christmas special." Julie then went on to say that
the TARDIS will be travelling into the future during the third series: "...and into the past, where we will meet Shakespeare
- and why wouldn't you?!" But of course there are still five episodes left to be shown in the second series, including a guest
appearance by comedy legend Peter Kay and a spectacular two-part season finale that sees the return of some familiar faces...
Don't you dare miss it!
