David Tennant is exclusively interviewed in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine, during the recording of his latest Big Finish series. The second volume of the Tenth Doctor adventures to be released sees David team up with his old castmates and friends, Billie Piper and Camille Coduri, who starred as Rose Tyler and her mum Jackie alongside David's Doctor in his first series of the show.
"It's like the last decade never happened," David tells DWM about reuniting with Billie, a partnership which many fans of the series see as the ultimate Doctor Who "Dream Team".
Given he's returning to a role, that secured his place in the nation's hearts DWM ask David if he's feeling a little sentimental to be recording new adventures with Billie, he reflects:
"I always feel fond towards it (Doctor Who). I always feel like it’s a happy place to be. Obviously a day like this brings it all back a little more keenly, but it’s always a very fond thing to retu…
David Tennant has been spotted on the set of Mary Queen Of Scots for the first time. Get Surrey took a sneaky snap of David, in make up, a long wig and full beard as he got ready to film scenes for the epic new Royal drama in Albury late last week.
The film, directed by Josie Rourke, follows the early life of Mary Stuart, played by Saoirse Ronan, and her relationship with Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), her rival in power and love. Both were female regents in a male world; Mary, who became Queen of Scotland when six days old and Queen of France aged 16, was seen as a threat to Elizabeth's sovereignty when she mounted a claim to the English throne.
Other cast include Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart, Adrian Lester, James McArdle and Guy Pearce. The film, a Working Title production, is currently shooting in locations across England and Scotland.
Last month Focus Features confirmed that the film will receive a limited release i…
David Tennant is the cover star of the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine, #518, which is released on Thursday 19th October.
The issue features interviews with David, Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) and Camille Coduri (Jackie Tyler) who have teamed up for a series of new Tenth Doctor audio adventures with Big Finish.
The three part set opens with Attack of the Zaross by John Dorney, in which an alien invasion of Earth isn’t quite what it appears to be.
In the second adventure, Sword of the Chevalier by Guy Adams, the Doctor and Rose arrive in Slough in 1791 and encounter Chevalier D’Eon, an enigmatic ex-spy who has lived his life as a woman. Together they must fend off alien slavers, who have come to Earth to abduct valuable humans.
Finally, in Cold Vengeance by Matt Fitton, the TARDIS arrives on Coldstar, a vast frozen food asteroid in deep space. But there is something sinister defrosting in the network of storage units… the Doctor’s old enemies the Ice Warriors!

The BBC have released a preview clip of the final episode of the series of W1A.
W1A is the creation of writer and director John Morton and is set in the BBC, although it is said to be a satire on all labyrinthine management structures. The series follows on from Twenty Twelve, which wryly mocked the organisation around the London Olympic Games, and tracks the next career steps of former Olympic Deliverance Committee lead Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) and inept PA Siobhan Sharp (Jessica Hynes) as they take on new roles in the BBC. W1A utilises the same spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary approach as Twenty Twelve, complemented by David Tennant’s dry
In the final episode of the series key broadcasting talent Claudia Winkleman is close to signing a deal which would keep her at the BBC.
