After winning the National Television Awards, David Tennant's shocked no one by announcing that he's quitting the role of the Doctor. My Livejournal friends list is in flames. It's quite funny really because the rumours have only been flying around for a year. I'm not surprised. It frees him up to do more stagework, something he prefers. I saw him in Hamlet this summer and the guy is amazing live. So much energy (and so thin! really!) Cue the umpteen rumours for the next Doctor.
