Doctor Who Confidential series 3 presents how the Doctor Who Production crew are recreating a 1914 battlefield in the middle of a freezing December night. All for the episode The Family of Blood. See how they managed to cope with the amazing amount of mud in this behind the scenes footage.
In the same episode, as you remember, the Doctor turns human. You can watch the Tenth Doctor becoming an old man… David Tennant gets a brief glimpse at life as an old man as he gets the Doctor Who prosthetics treatment. Take a look at the extraordinary results in this clip from Doctor Who Confidential.
Rehearsals for a stunt are leaving the Doctor a little hot under the collar. David Tennant talks here about the amazing safety procedures in place as he films in an exploding laboratory. This videoclip is taken from the BBC Doctor Who Confidential series 3.
You know John Hurt’s role in The Day of the Doctor, right? He hasn’t spoke about his return as a Doctor, but the rumours exist and they say about a possible appearance in the series.
Recently, Red Carpet News put the question to Hurt directly and he doesn’t seem very comfortable answering. “I can’t think for a second… You’re asking me to answer something which I can’t answer,” he says. “But I can’t think there’d be any reason to do that.”
What do you think? Will he return? Do you want him back?
Watch this BBC America Exclusive Doctor Who Insider with never-before-seen interviews with Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, and Tenth Doctor, David Tennant, as they discuss Regeneration and saying goodbye to playing The Doctor.
Do you remember? Christopher Eccleston had just regenerated into David Tennant… and after smelling the tea and waking up, the Doctor reintroduces himself to everyone. But who is he? Is he Ginger? Is he funny? Sarcastic? Sexy? Right handed? Left handed? A gambler? A Fighter? A coward? A traitor? A liar? A nervous wreck? Toying with both friends and foe about his identity, he shuts down the Sycorax blood control of mankind, then challenges the Sycorax leader.
Soon, just few weeks from now, we will get through something like this all over again…
Let the celebration continue! David Tennant and Matt Smith discuss the legacy of #DoctorWho in this insider clip.
Watch the interviews with David and Matt – two Doctors together! – and Lead Writer & Executive Producer Steven Moffat about Doctor Who as it celebrates its 50th Anniversary. The interviews were part of Doctor Who Takeover Week, leading into the special episode The Day of The Doctor.
I am not sure if that happened after Graham Norton’s regeneration or in some other moment, but the Tenth Doctor David Tennant and the Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith are taking questions from Whovians who have traveled the world for the 50th Anniversary Celebration on an all new episode of The Graham Norton show.
More: they are talking their shocking new hairdos and the etiquette of sharing a TARDIS.
Yes, yesterday was indeed the day of the Doctor. It was the 50th anniversary from the broadcast of the first episode, thing that happened almost unnoticed because of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s assasination one day before. But a hard start did not stoped the people from the BBC to produce episode after episode, and now, 5 decades later, to produce n episode about the first 3 years of the show and the first Doctor, William Hartnell. An adventure in time and space was broadcast Friday, 22th of November, and it can be describe in one single word: memorable. The British work made the idea to endure and to become a world wide phenomenon.
Last night BBC and some cinemas around the world broadcast the special episode the Day of the Doctor, an episode well done. The history from the Doctor Who Universe says that once there were a temporal war between the Time Lords and a race called the Daleks that burned everything in its way in the universe. The war ended in the moment the Doctor eliminated both rases along with his home planet, Gallifrey, into an attempt to save the rest of the Universe. To do that he stole a weapon called the Moment, something so powerful its operating system became sentient, and the Time Lords could not used it even in the last moments of the war, when the odd were against them. Who could use a weapon of mass destruction that could became his/her judge of the war crimes?
That moment was probably the worst moment in Doctor’s life, so bad that he overlooked or even forgot some things. The John Hurt’s incarnation was considered that Time Lord that betrayed the name of the Doctor.
The day of the Doctor returns to that moment in time and space, bringing along several incarnation of the Time Lord: John Hurt, David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor), Matt Smith (the Eleventh Doctor). 3 Doctors working together, 3 times greater nightmare to their enemies, including the Daleks. The current companion, Jenna Coleman (Clara) and Billie Piper (known as Rose Tyler or Bad Wolf) are also present. But Tom Baker too, the Forth Doctor, at the end of the episode.
I am not telling you the details of the great story written by Steven Moffat, it has too many turns (more or less unexpected) in the action. If I am starting to write the good or the best stuff that appeared in the episode I will only take you the pleasure and the surprise of watching the show. All I can tell you is that the Zygons, shape-shifting creatures that return in this episode of Doctor Who, provide an important item that help saving the planet Gallifrey and its natives from destruction. So that the Doctor will be able to return home some time in the future.

Spectacular action from the 50th Anniversary Special episode, The Day of the Doctor, in this official BBC One trailer. The 40 seconds of the footage begins with the Tardis looking in pretty rough shape, with footprints suggesting its recent inhabitant has made a swift escape…
The trailer stars the two Doctors – Matt Smith and David Tennant – together for the first time with the now-iconic fez and Amy’s glasses.Their companions, Jenna Coleman as Clara and Billie Piper as Rose, also appear in the footage, as does Joanna Page as Queen Elizabeth I. And the Daleks are out to “EXTERMINATE” once again.
The jam-packed edit comes to a close with Rose informing John Hurt’s character, “The moment is coming,” to which he replies, “I’m ready,” before Matt Smith yells “Geronimo” from within the Tardis.
David Tennant and David Woolstencroft are interviewed on BBC Breakfast (Oct 29, 2013) to chat about Richard II, his ponytail, The escape artist (that started last night), Doctor Who, the 50th Anniversary and Matt Smith all come up in conversation too.
BBC’s Susanna Reid was quick to target Tennant’s hair, saying “Can we just get something out of the way? Can you just put your plait over one shoulder?”
David Tennant gave a brief glimpse of his hair extensions saying we “need never think of it again”, before joking that he would upset the wig department at the Royal Shakespeare Company, where he is currently performing as long-haired monarch Richard II.
He also talked about switching between roles in the theatre and on TV, explaining “They’re quite different jobs, the pacing of your day is very different… The variety is part of the joys of the job.”
Celebrate 50 Years of DOCTOR WHO with this specially-shot tribute in advance of the special 50th Anniversary episode, “The Day of The Doctor” *** Premiering SAT NOVEMBER 23 *** on BBC AMERICA.
The Day of the Doctor stars Matt Smith (How to Catch a Monster), David Tennant (Broadchurch), Jenna Coleman (Dancing on the Edge), with Billie Piper (Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Alien).
The title for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special was revealed earlier today, it’s The day of the Doctor.
The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, will join David Tennant and John Hurt as the Doctors. It’s true, we still don’t know which incarnation of the Time Lord is John Hurt, but I think we will found out soon. Both companions Billie Piper and Jenna Coleman will be involved in the story.
The celebratory episode will be feature-length, it was announced to be 75 minutes long, not 90, as many have expected, and it will air 50 years to the day since Doctor Who first hit TV screens, on Saturday 23 November.
The story is also set to feature the return of classic Who monsters the Zygons, as well as Daleks, Cybermen and the Doctor’s allies UNIT.
The big news from tonight is the Peter Capaldi’s introduction as the Twelfth Doctor. He should be replacing Matt Smith on Christmas special episode, when the Eleventh Doctor will regenerate from one reason or another.
The future Time Lord was among the guests on tonight’s show – Doctor Who Live: The Twelfth Doctor – who also included guests as the fifth Doctor Peter Davison, fellow Who alumnus Bernard Cribbins and celebrity fans Daniel Roache, Rufus Hound and Liza Tarbuck.
There were contributions, too, from Sixth Doctor Colin Baker, and former companions Anneke Wills, who played Polly, Katy Manning, aka Jo Grant, Janet Fielding, who was Tegan, and Bonnie Langford, known to fans as Mel.
Well… there are 2 problems about this new Doctor.
the Doctor Who episode named The fire of Pompeii
The Doctor Who’s spinoff, Torchwood
The actor Peter Capaldi appeared in both. So… In Torchwood the Doctor and Peter Capaldi’s character never met (as far as I remember), but David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor) saved Peter Capaldi’s character and family from the vulcano’s killer breath.
There are 2 options about the tonight announcement:
it’s a hoax. A part of Steven Moffat’s lies, a trial to save the show and the surprises he’s preparing for us for the end of the year.
it’s for real, and Steven Moffat will have some explaining to do. A very very very good reason why the new Doctor is identical to the previous characters.
The Doctor Who team revealed that The Wand Company are releasing an authentic Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control later this year. It will be previewed at San Diego Comic-Con International in July).
Here’s the Tenth Doctor’s screwdriver (owned by David Tennant himself!) having a 3D scan by Painstakingly for the making of the remote.
The original was kindly loaned to The Wand Company by David Tennant himself, so you should consider that this Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver is a faithful clone, CNC machined from aluminium, crammed full of technology.
Also, it is a fully functioning gesture-based universal remote control that looks, feels and works just like the real prop – utilising sound effects from the BBC archives.
Previewing on the ThinkGeek Booth at San Diego Comic-Con in July, the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote will be available exclusively through selected retailers in the UK, US and Australia in October 2013 on doctorwho.tv. The Screwdriver will retail at £69.95 GBP / $109.95 USD / $129.95 AUD.
Catherine Tate and David Tennant were partners in travels (I almost wrote “partners in crime” ) for about one year (one season and one Christmas special episode) on Doctor Who sets. More, they played together on a theater stage.
Also, David Tennant played a small part in Harry Potter series and now (in the video) Catherine Tate is trying to guess his character. From ‘The Justin Lee Collins Show’. Enjoy!
David Tennant and Arthur Darvill need no introduction – they both appeared for some time in Doctor Who series. The critically-acclaimed new BBC America drama, Broadchurch, premiering Wednesday Aug 7 at 10pm/9c.
“The drama of the year” – Mirror
“Britain’s biggest new drama since Downton Abbey” – The Guardian
“Full of bravura acting… Impeccable” – London Metro
BBC America’s BROADCHURCH, which earned critical acclaim and broke records on Twitter in the UK, centers on the investigation into the murder of a young boy in a British seaside town.
Leading the investigation are two detectives — the strong yet compassionate local Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller (OLIVIA COLMAN, Twenty Twelve, The Iron Lady), and the by-the-book Detective Inspector Alec Hardy (DAVID TENNANT, Doctor Who, Spies of Warsaw), Ellie’s newly appointed boss.
Broadchurch is an eight part drama created by Doctor Who and Torchwood writer Chris Chibnall which centres on the effect on a small UK seaside town when a schoolboy is found murdered on the beach. David Tennant and Olivia Colman star as mismatched police detectives Hardy and Miller whose task is to find the killer while around them suspicion, fear and grief threaten to tear the small community apart. Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and David Bradley also feature in the series that had millions in the UK glued to their TV screens this spring.
By circumstance they are partnered to solve the murder, keeping the newspapers from derailing the investigation and trying to prevent the crime from impacting tourism at the beach where the boy was murdered.
The story looks interesting enough to watch. I hope you will all enjoy the drama.
The video was uploaded on youtube a little too late (about 7 years later than the moment it was recorded), it’s a piece of David Tennant’s Doctor Who video diary and it shows him watching his first episode of Doctor Who, The Christmas Invasion, at home with his family in December 2005.
The former Doctor Who star (the Tenth Doctor) David Tennant will act along Emily WatsonÂ in the three-part drama, named The Politician’s Husband, which starts on Thursday 25 April on BBC2.Â The dramaÂ will follow the couple as Freya embarks on her own political career, something which threatens to overshadow her husband’s, Aiden, career.
