Doctor Who fans who have been dreading the upcoming departure of series star David Tennant will be delighted to know he has a surprising number of Who-related projects coming up... In fact, it's almost sounding like he'll be more busy than ever as the Doctor! (Click the image at left to buy the fourth season of Doctor Who.)
It's already been confirmed that Tennant will appear as the Doctor in an upcoming story in the spin-off series The Sarah Jane Adventures. But it seems this won't just be a cameo, the Doctor will be teaming with Sarah Jane to face off against "their biggest threat ever."
Also, a sequel is in the works for The Infinite Quest, the animated Doctor Who story featuring Tennant and Freeya Agyeman. The new cartoon will be called Dreamland and will feature Georgia Moffett (she portrayed the titular character in The Doctor's Daughter but will be playing a new role here) and genre great David Warner (Time Bandits, Tron, Time After Time, et al.) Like The Infinite Quest, Dreamland will appear on UK TV as a series of shorts, which will then be compiled into one long story and released on DVD.
Meanwhile, outgoing showrunner Russell T. Davies tells Doctor Who Magazine that yet another special project with Tennant is the works, although Davies is coy about what the project will be. "It would be nice to round things off with a Special Project 3... I can promise, it's worth waiting for!"
Finally, the BBC press release about Tennant's appearance on The Sarah Jane Adventures also says that a Who feature film script is in development, although there's no word on whether a Who film would star Tennant, incoming Doctor Matt Smith or somebody else, and the release cautions that if the film happens at all it will be "a long way away."
