David Tennant, best known to Doctor Who viewers as the current and tenth Doctor in the long running BBC British series has been cast as the title character in an hour-long pilot for NBC in the US called, "Rex Is Not Your Lawyer."
Having already completed his work playing the lead role as The Doctor in Doctor Who since 2005 after Christopher Eccleston, with his remaining three stories being shown later this year as specials (starting with Waters of Mars on the 15th of this month on BBC), Tennant has already been seen doing American television as the new host for Masterpiece Contemporary (formerly Masterpiece Theater) for PBS.
Here is a clip of the upcoming Doctor Who animated story, Dreamland starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor.
This episode is everything everyone says DW is but often the show is not. For one thing science marvels are introduced in the TARDIS and without. The sets are atmospheric and somewhat clastrophobic, the petrified forest and the metallic petrified animal lizard thing are most unusual. Then there's the city...even more clastrophobic. The WHOLE thing is very alien and this takes it time and does not rampage us with humanoid aliens any time soon...just one hand that touches Susan's shoulder in one scene and the hammering sound outside, heard from within the TARDIS (unusual in itself maybe but it was on the scanner) makes this entire thing just eerie. It is truly a classic ep as the foursome venture outside and together and separately explore the forest and later, the city, thanks to some sabotage by the irksome Doctor, who also displays quite a bit of charm.
These are the results for all of the seven classic series Doctors (plus the Eighth Doctor thrown in for good measure)- top five in each category:
