David Tennant to leave Doctor Who
David Tennant announced yesterday, after four years playing the role of one of only two men to be known simply as 'The Doctor', that he would be leaving the role at the end of next year. The BBC has not yet announced who his replacement will be. I am, however, in a position to drop an exclusive hint to readers of this blog, following an interview and screen test two weeks ago (pictured).
The new role will fit in perfectly with pastoral ministry since I will be able to leave after the Sunday evening service, spend a few months saving the planet (again), and still be back in time to take Elaine out for coffee on Monday morning.
