In an interview with Russell T. Davies, Doctor Who Magazine issue 409 (on newsstands now), it is revealed that David Tennant will be appearing in a few projects as the Doctor, besides from his last few episodes as the titular character on Doctor Who.
Davies, who has run the classic British science fiction franchise since it’s return to television in 2004, mentions that David Tennant will be starring in a two-part story for the third series of Doctor Who spin-off show The Sarah Jane Adventures. Returning with Tennant will be the robot dog known as K-9. Davies emphasizes that the Doctor will be more than just a cameo appearance, and will play a major role in the story.
In other Doctor Who-related news, Davies confirmed that there is a new animated story in the works. Called Dreamland, the adventure will feature David Tennant as the Doctor, Georgia Moffett as Cassie Rice, the voice of Bernice Summerfield, Lisa Bowerman (Summerfield was a character from the last story from the original Doctor Who series, Survival, and has gone on to appear in numerous audio stories by Big Finish Productions). Also doing voice work in this story is David Warner, known for his roles in Tron and Time Bandits.
In the interview in Doctor Who Magazine, Davies hints that a third project is in the works. He says that, “… it would be nice to round things off with a Special Project 3… I can promise, it’s worth waiting for!”
So, even with the third project still a mystery, Doctor Who fans have a lot to look forward to later this year. As is already known, Tennant will be appearing in his final three episodes of Doctor Who as the Doctor at the end of this year, with Matt Smith picking up the titular role next year, when Steven Moffat takes over as showrunner.
