Tennant to ditch Doctor Who?
Actor David Tennant has gone mysterious on whether he'll continue as Doctor Who. Asked by Doctor Who Online about whether he'll do a third series he replies:
"It's difficult to judge, because there's an element of being in a long-running show that's a gamble, because I am 35 now, and if I stayed in this for as long as it was humanly possible, I'd still have to have some kind of a career at the other end of it, so it's judging when is the right moment to go. I think I now know how many series I'm going to do, and Russell, Julie, and I have talked about it, and will continue to talk about it, but I think it would be stupid of me to say more than that right now - anything can happen, and everything can change..."
Sounds to me like he's plotting his exit lest he ends up typecast. I'd say he'll do a third series then hop off into his Tardis for a career of post-Who anti-climax. I do know he's just signed up to star in British tragi-comedy movie Cheerful Weather for The Wedding which starts shooting May 2007.
