Whoever says this is a comedy didn't watch this episode first! That's to say that this is cracking good TV and cracking good DW to boot. I've said it before and I'll say it again---DW lost something when historicals like this one went out the window for monsters, monsters, monsters. Well, in fact, there are more monsters in this episode than in all of KEYS OF MARINUS and THE SENSORITES put together, they all happen to be human. If ANYONE can be really scared of ANYTHING in DW, then this should be it: mankind at its worst.
David Tennant is featured here in one of the extras included in the Doctor Who: Complete Specials box sets coming out in 2010 (February 2 in the US) on DVD and Blu-ray.
The Lodon Guardian has reported that the magazine "Tiime Out" has a special edition on an upcoming issue. The issue will have ten different covers for each Doctor - starting with William Hartnell all the way up to David Tennant.
I don't know what kind of magazine Time Out is but you can view all the covers here:
To make up for having to miss out on going to meet the man himself at Chicago TARDIS, I settled instead for the pleasure of listening to the recent Big Finish 8th Doctor audio – “The Company of Friends”. And a real delight it was too (more details on that below!). While listening to it, I marveled at the breadth of “friends” (or companions) that the 8th Doctor has accumulated, across a wide range of mediums. In fact, all told, it is possible that the 8th Doctor may have had more companions (15, by my rough count) than any other incarnation! This is all the more astonishing given the brevity of his television appearances – about 50-55 minutes of a 90-minute TV movie.

This book was really good. I liked it a lot and thought Alex had a lot of character. The US version has the last chapter take place in Feb and Ale'x birth date is mentioned: Feb 13. The death of the guy that saved Alex three times was THE MOST SHOCKING MOMENT IN all of the books.
For some reason, while I really think highly of this book, I didn't devour it like ARK ANGEL and SNAKEHEAD. I guess at that time I was a new Alex Rider fan. Also I didn't really want it to end that fast, wondering how long it would be before...another one comes out.
The End of Time is coming… faster than you can imagine. Here is the latest "trailer" promo video for Doctor Who: The End of Time coming to the BBC on Christmas Day and to BBC America on Boxing Day with part 1 of 2 of the last David Tennant as the 10th Doctor specials.
