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 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 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.

William Hartnell

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.
