David Tennant is DOCTOR WHO No More

In one of the saddest TV news, David Tennant officially announced that he was leaving DOCTOR WHO.

David Tennant made the announcement after winning the outstanding drama performance prize at the National Television Awards:

“When Doctor Who returns in 2010 it won’t be with me,” he said.

“Now don’t make me cry,” he added. “I love this part, and I love this show so much that if I don’t take a deep breath and move on now I never will, and you’ll be wheeling me out of the Tardis in my bath chair.”

Well, I might just cry. I thought David Tennant was an amazing Doctor. But then again, I was also really sad when Christopher Eccleston left and ended up loving David Tennant even more. I just hope the next Doctor will be able to fill the big shoes left by Tennant.

As for who I would like to see as the new Doctor, well a while back there were some rumors that Robert Carlyle might be the next Doctor, and I still wouldn’t mind that.

Other than him, there has been talk of James Nesbitt (who was brilliant in Jekyll), and funny enough, John Simm (who played The Master in Doctor Who) was mentioned as well. Even though that might be hard to explain, I would love John Simm as the new Doctor, he would do a great job.

And just for the sake of it, I think Jason Isaacs would be a great Doctor, but then again he is already in the Brotherhood and I have doubts that they would even be able to get him.
