Where to Find David Tennant on DVD and Blu-Ray

Updated on April 26, 2011

Enjoy the Incredible Acting Talents of David Tennant!

If you're still mourning the loss of David Tennant in Doctor Who, after his hugely popular Tenth Doctor regenerated into Matt Smith's Eleventh, then fear not - there are still plenty of opportunities to see him shine!

From a cold killer in Secret Smile to Shakespearean magnificence in Hamlet, all-singing all dancing in Blackpool to devilishly dashing in Casanova, there is seemingly no end to Mr Tennant's sublime acting ability. If you love David Tennant and want to see absolutely EVERYTHING he's been in, then this is the page for you!


Doctor Who was brought back to TV screens by the BBC with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, but it wasn't until a little known actor named David Tennant took over as the tenth incarnation that Doctor Who truly became a phenomenon once again. Voted time and time again as the best Doctor of all time, David brings exuberance, excitement, sexiness and a truckload of incredible acting talent to the time-travelling Time Lord.

Doctor Who - The Tenth Doctor

David Tennant fans cannot be without the Tenth Doctor's final adventures, as sad as his regeneration is! See all four amazing specials in high quality Blu-Ray. All four specials are superbly made but the final two-parter, The End of Time, surpasses all episodes before it in emotional plot twists and turns, action and gasp-out-loud adventures. Relive the Doctor's self-sacrificing moment over and over again - just stock up on those tissues!

The four imaginative, action-packed specials are the farewell to star David Tennant, and Russell T Davies, the mastermind behind the rebirth of the modern DoctorWho. The specials culminate in the dramatic regeneration of the Doctor, giving fans their first glimpse of the eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith. The specials are packed with a terrific lineup of guest stars including Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman), David Morrissey (State of Play, Sense and Sensibility), Lindsay Duncan (Alice in Wonderland (2010), Rome, Under the Tuscan Sun) and many more!

Doctor Who: The Infinite Quest - The Tenth Doctor (Voice)

Doctor Who fans mourning the departure of David Tennant can get another dose with The Infinite Quest, an animated adventure that pits the Tenth Doctor against a space pirate in pursuit of a vessel that can make dreams come true. After halting the pirate Baltazar's scheme to compress the population of Earth into diamonds, Tennant's Doctor and companion Martha (voiced by Freema Agyeman) are caught up in a quest to find three datachips that will reveal the aforementioned ship, dubbed "The Infinite." Their search takes them across the universe, where they tangle with living skeletons, insect armies, and imprisonment on an ice planet before crossing paths again with Baltazar for control of "The Infinite." Well-voiced by Tennant, Agyeman, and Anthony Head (himself a Who vet, but forever Giles from Buffy), The Infinite Quest originally aired in serial form on the BBC children's series Totally Doctor Who, and it retains its kid-friendly balance of plentiful action and engaging storyline; longtime Who fans that may want to use the feature as an introduction to the series for younger viewers will be pleased to note nods to the show's elaborate mythology, including name-drops of previous foes like the Nestenes and Great Vampires.
