It was more like he was fired by the BBC. There will be four specials in 2009 with the last one staring the Master. That last episode will have a character simpled named the doctor who seems to know alot about the Tartis. It seems Tennant's Doctor turns into that character as a twist at the end.

Rhys Ifans is the favorite actor so far to play the Doctor in the fifth 2010 season. He played Spike in the movie Notting Hill. He is suppost to be related to the actor that played the third Doctor I believe.

Of course, James Nesbitt (from Jekyll) is still in the running for the role.

So, are you saying that Tennant will not regenerate into the next Doctor, but turns out to be some alternate character with a TARDIS?

I don't think anyone knows for sure yet. If Moffit wrote it, it'll probably be one of those 4th into 5th doctor dealies where the next doctor is part of the previous doctor's regeneration.

I've also done some digging and I think the fired thing is a rumor. Apparently, Tennant has loyalties to Davies and decided to quit when Davies announced he as leaving. Tennant just kept the decision quiet until a few weeks ago.

There is suppost to be a character name (lower case) the doctor in the last special. The (upper case) Doctor regenerates into the actor that is playing the (lower case) doctor. So basically the Doctor is present for his own regeneration. At least that is the rumor.  ;)

The only thing that I can think that is similar is Romana's regeneration during the Tom Baker years.  An entire season was devoted to the Doctor finding the segments of the Key to Time and the last segment had been disguised as a woman.  Later on, Romana regenerated, but it seemed she got to choose her new form.  After coming out of a room as several different people for the Doctor's opinion, she settled on the person who played the woman who was the last segment of the Key of Time.

I think there's a vast difference to the approach. In Romonavaratnaluna's case, it was a conscious effort to choose a previously known form. I would guess that in the upcoming regeneration it's the 11th doctor guiding the 10th doctor.

Maybe something related to the woman from the Library episode?  Maybe something slightly similar to when Tom Baker finally left with the Guardian.

I would love to see a special or two on the Time War.  It would nice to seem them use Paul McGann (I think that is his name) and have him regenerate to Eccelston at the end to tie the old series to the new one.

Either one works for me.

I would love that too. There's no reason they can't go there, however, you have to be careful. The time war has such a mythology now that it'll be hard to do it justice. It might be like trying to do the prequel trilogy.  :-X

Considering that Doctor Who is a British show and longest Sci-Fi series of all time, I don't think it will matter.  Also, I think it could be done with a few specials and doesn't need to be a whole season.  With Trek, Paramount dropped the ball.  Friday night shows do not work on TV.  The time war storyline was when Enterprise was actually getting interesting.

Wow! What a tease. I'll bet there's some kind of less obvious twist though.

I guess this is the 2008 Doctor meeting the 2010 Doctor in 1851. Where the heck is Doc Brown when you need him?

I think the new Doctor seems a little pompus though. I guess Anita form the Silence in the Library will be in season 5.

This guy might not be the Doctor though. He could be an impostor, you know, to impress the chicks.

The new Christmas special is findable as a bit-torrent. I plan on watching it this evening.
