Missing your regular Doctor Who fix?
Then, help is at hand with the new Doctor Who Magazine!

This issue Freema Agyeman gives DWM the inside scoop on how Martha will have changed when she next meets up with the Doctor in Series Four…

"She'll actually be in a relationship by that point, so that part of her soul is fulfilled," Freema hints, "so I think she'll look at her relationship with the Doctor with fresh eyes - older and much, much wiser. The last time they will have seen one another is after she's just saved the world, so she went out on a high. And then they meet up again so I imagine that they'll be sizing each other up a bit!"

Also this issue, the mag goes behind the scenes on the Master’s death scenes - and travels back to his very first appearance with a Fact of Fiction article on 1971’s Terror of the Autons. Plus, we take a trip to the year 100
Trillion with Blue Peter winner John Bell, while the Doctor Who design team reveals the special effects secrets behind the Master trilogy - with exclusive artwork, design drawings and never-before-seen photographs!

Meanwhile, the Doctor finds himself caught in traffic in DWM’s new comic strip adventure, Bus Stop; the Time Team witness the Resurrection of the Daleks; and ­ OMG! ­ the Matrix Data Bank Tour goes worldwide!

All this and more in your latest thrilling Doctor Who Outer Space Magazine!

Doctor Who Weekend On UKTV Drama
Don't forget the Doctor Who weekend on UKTV Drama is this weekend. See the diary for more details.
The Play's The Thing
Whilst browsing a London Theatre Guide we stumbled upon an alarming but very exciting sight! David has made it into the title of a new play, NOT Stalking David Tennant by Emma Hutchins.

Four women. Four Stories. One Goal.

Helen - Successful - Independent -Lost. Jen - Gorgeous - Narcissistic - Deluded. Isabel - Welcoming - Frustrated - Dangerous. Louise - Warm - Confused - Lonely.

Money, career, family, looks, love! You can’t have it all, can you?

NOT Stalking David Tennant is a one-woman show exploring the modern obsession with ‘having it all’ and how it can lead us to taint the beauty of the things we do possess.

Find out more here.

Learners has been unveiled as part of the BBC's new autumn schedule, despite earlier indications that it would be transmitted on the channel in August.
Bev (Jessica Hynes) is a downtrodden wife who’s failed her driving test eight times. Desperate to pass, she feels frustrated by her husband Ian’s (Shaun Dingwall) approach in teaching her to drive. Inspired by glamorous driving school owner Fiona (Sarah Hadland), Bev is determined to succeed along with a group of other learner drivers. Chris (David Tennant), 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, despite his geeky appearance.

David To Play Hamlet?
Rumours abound that David has been approached to play the part of Hamlet in a forthcoming production by the RSC.
The Daily Mail reported: "The plan being developed by RSC artistic chief Michael Boyd is for Mr Tennant to play Hamlet in a production he wants to direct next summer. The exact timing will depend on whether the actor will do a fourth batch of episodes as the Converse All Stars-sporting Doctor. Tennant has been offered several high-profile TV, film and stage parts since his interpretation of Dr Who found so much favour with audiences and critics. Indeed, he recently completed filming a TV movie for HBO called Einstein And Eddington opposite Andy Serkis and Rebecca Hall."
David himself told that Hamlet is a role he is keen to play:
"Hamlet would be a role I would like, I think all actors want to play Hamlet."
We will bring your further news of this story as we get it.

But fear not as Martha Jones, played by Freema Agyeman will still be a TARDIS traveller and she will also be popping up in Torchwood!
Official Press Release:

The BBC has announced the first casting details for the fourth series of Doctor Who following the acclaimed end of the third series run - widely hailed by the critics and public alike as the best series yet.

While the final episode, screened last Saturday, saw The Doctor’s companion Martha leave to care for her devastated family, and to break the cycle of unrequited love she feels for The Doctor, the production team has now confirmed that the character is set to make a triumphant return in the fourth series.

Freema Agyeman who has gained rave notices for her portrayal of Martha Jones is also set to join the cast of Torchwood where she will continue to play the character in three new episodes before returning to Doctor Who in the middle of the fourth series.

Doctor Who’s executive producer and head writer, Russell T Davies comments: ‘Series three has gained outstanding reviews and Freema has been a huge part of that success, gaining rave notices for her portrayal of Martha. Now we are taking the character of Martha into brand new territory with a starring role in Torchwood’.

Freema Agyeman said ‘I can’t wait to start filming on Torchwood and the new series of Doctor Who. It’s a huge new challenge for me and I’m delighted Russell has decided to expand the character of Martha Jones.’

The new announcement leaves a vacant space in the Tardis and a new companion for The Doctor, who will join the new series for the entire 13 week run will be announced shortly.

The fourth series of Doctor Who goes into production this July.
