Catherine Tate has suggested that the next series of Doctor Who could be the last for actor David Tennant.

The comedian, speaking on Radio 2's Jonathan Ross programme, said: "I think it's maybe David's last series."

The BBC refused to comment on Mr Tennant's future as the show's star.

Tate, who first appeared in the 2006 Christmas special, is to return as the doctor's assistant, Donna, for the entire run of the fourth series.

She will also be joined for several episodes by the doctor's former companion Martha Jones, played by Freema Agyeman.

When pressed on whether Tennant would return to play the timelord in special Dr Who shows in future, Tate replied: "Possibly."

The comedian also confirmed that the forthcoming series would be her last.

Tate made her Doctor Who debut last year as a runaway bride who found herself transported into the Tardis as she prepared for her wedding on Christmas Eve.

The episode attracted an audience of 9.4 million when it was screened on BBC One on Christmas Day.

This year's Christmas special, starring Kylie Minogue, is due to be screened at 1850 GMT on 25 December.

Speaking to Doctor Who magazine, the pop star said appearing in the show was "like stepping back in time".

"I really felt at home being back in the world of TV," she added. "I've definitely got the acting bug again!"

I think it was meant to be a spoiler to get the media guessing who will take over?

The media don't need any incentive to start guessing who'll take over - they've been banging on about it since the day Tennant took over. Already the papers have named James Nesbitt and that's complete rubbish.

I suspect Tennant is signed up for the Specials and will see what he feels like when the time grows nearer for Series 5. Which is fair enough.

Also Life On Mars Star John Simm has been named. Maybe the Doctor could be a Women?

Just thinking!! How will he come back again for another appearance as the Doctor? Unless he goes over to the parallel universe where Rose went to be safe, because I think he can't get over her... but then that would mean there are two Doctors, one in this universe (the new Doctor) and the one in the parallel one.............

They should have got Tom Baker to play the ship captain. Or? It would have been good getting some of the old Doctors back playing shipmates or passengers, and the current one saying " Don't I know you from somewhere"

Yes this has been on the cards for a while. Personally I hope we don't get James Nesbitt. John Simm well it would be interesting to have the Doctor regenerate into the appearence of The Master, his old Nemisis. Maybe some twist was hidden in the last episode they were in together which causes him to take on The Masters appearence.

I'd like to see somebody older playing the Doctor for a change.. like the professor chap from Back to the Future.
But then again, I don't watch it anyway so I don't particularly care.
Thinking about it, many people could play the part couldn't they... Bill Bailey, Rick Wakeman, Phil Jupitas....
I still haven't forgiven John Simm for leaving Life on Mars! Sad

Is it important, it's not as if it's as serious as CE taking over Drivetime, now that was a seriously serious lapse of judgement, IMHO. Wink

It won't be John Simm or James Nesbitt.

I'd like to see Dr Who, with the wooden acting and all his celebrity chums, transported (or is that Star Trek term ?) to CBBC or CBeebies where it belongs.. Evil or Very Mad

There is a rather brilliant spin-off on CBBC actually.

I'm not a particular fan of Dr Who (I much prefer Torchwood) but think the Beeb have done splendidly in reviving the show so effectively after such a long absence.

I'll be sorry if David Tennant does move on but right through the show's history Doctors have stayed for only two or three series.

Ian.
