The Last Episodes with David Tennant

He had already completed three years on the show. Series 2, Series 3 and Series 4.

The BBC wanted to keep the actor for one more year so an agreement was made that he would only make five episodes in his last series.

Doctor Who: The Complete Specials DVD covers these last five episodes

The five episodes on the DVD are:

  • The Next Doctor was the Christmas Special in 2009.

  • Planet of the Dead was shown as an Easter Special in 2009.

  • The Waters of Mars was shown in September of 2009

  • The End of Time Parts 1 and 2.

The last two episodes were shown over Christmas and New Year of 2009.

In the episode The End of Time part 2 David Tennant as Doctor Who is killed and regenerates as Doctor Who played by Matt Smith.

Also included are many other special features:

Doctor Who at the Proms

This was a fantastic show. All the music from Doctor Who including the Doctors song.

Doctor Who deleted Scenes

Wonderful scenes from the show that had to be cut because of time restrictions. Some of these are just awesome. It is a shame they could not have been included in the TV series. There are quite a few of these deleted scenes for you to enjoy.

David Tennant Video Diary

The Final Days: I love David Tennant’s Video Diary and even more poignant because it was his last series. David Tennant always produces interesting video diaries of behind the scenes as he spends his time making the series.

You get to see David Tennant at home and in the BBC studios and how he makes some of the scenes of Doctor Who.

Doctor Who TV Show

The first actor to play The Doctor was William Hartnell.

The show was very popular and when he decided to leave the writers of Doctor Who came up with a very clever idea so that they could continue making the Doctor Who series.

As a way of replacing the actor they came up with the idea that because The Doctor was an alien from the planet Gallifrey his people were able to regenerate into another human body if they were about to die.

He would have slight character changes because he had a new body but The Doctor would keep all the memories of his previous regenerations.

So he would be in a different human body but would be still The Doctor. This way the Doctor Who TV series could continue. And it certainly did continue for another twenty six years until 1989.

Seven different actors played The Doctor during this time.

There is a lot more on this DVD than just the episodes that were shown on TV.

The extras that are included in this Doctor Who DVD box set are amazing.

I grew up watching Doctor Who with my Grandmother, even at a young age, I noticed that the main character seemed to change every time I watched it!

Its cool to find know why this was happening.

Lol Yes I have watched every episode available too. Its a shame when the actor moves on and the viewers have the get used to a new face. But the show is written so well that we soon forget about the previous actor and concentrate on the character of Doctor Who.

I hear it is getting big in the states these last few years too

Hey Viking, very nicely done. I remember watching the original version and didn't get into much of the newest or latest version. However, you have some great still shots of the episodes and a great looking hub. Keep up the good work. :)
