I know that I’m not the only Doctor Who fan out here on Geeks Are Sexy. Our love of Britain’s most celebrated Sci-Fi show is as potent as that of any Trekkie or Star Wars buff. Well, brace yourself, my brethren, for some rough news.
There have been rumors for months about who would be leaving the show. If you’re a fan of David Tennant or Russell T. Davies, you’re probably already aware that they have been the prime suspects. Now, Tennant has confirmed our worst fears in a BBC interview.
He enjoyed his three season stay, but after 4 one-hour specials, he will gracefully bow out and hand the roll over to someone else. Even he doesn’t know the manner of his “death” yet, but it will undoubtedly be the climax to a great episode.
He also confirmed that Davies will be leaving as lead producer and writer and handing the show off to Steven Moffat. Tennant admits that he’s a huge fan of Moffat and it’s one of the things tempting him to keep on in the role. Even so, The Doctor knows that it’s better to step out on a high note than wait until everyone is asking when he’s leaving.
Personally, I am optimistic about the next Doctor and the next season. The main character is changing but they’ve always made good casting choices in the past. The old cast is largely “done” because their smash-bang season finale moved most of them off to Torchwood (or killed them…or stranded them in another universe), but who knows what new talents they’ll introduce.
What do you expect after the Doctor regenerates?
