Things look set to get steamy in the desert landscape of an alien planet between the Doctor and his latest companion Lady Christina.
Michelle Ryan who plays Christina in Planet Of The Dead, says "There is a little spark between the Doctor and Christina. I think Christina feels like she’s met her equal — and the Doctor feels like he’s met his match with Christina."
Meanwhile David says of the Easter Special, which is to be shown tomorrow on BBC One and BBC HD at 18:45pm, "The story in the special is a bit bonkers. It's fast moving and very exciting and something bigger than we’ve managed before. The writers always come up with something different each time and I'm always amazed by the storylines".
The story starts with Michelle's character who is a thief trying to escape the police by boarding a London bus. David says:

Beautiful Chaos Released On CD

A new Doctor Who audio CD has been released today.
Bernard Cribbins reads this gripping story of a new star and an ancient alien threat. Donna Noble is back home in London, catching up with her family and generally giving them all the gossip about her journeys. Her grandfather is especially overjoyed - he's discovered a new star and had it named after him. He takes the Doctor, as his special guest, to the naming ceremony. But the Doctor is suspicious about some of the other changes he can see in the Earth's heavens. Particularly that bright star, right there. No, not that one, that one, there, on the left...The world's population is slowly being converted to a new path, a new way of thinking. Something is coming to Earth, an ancient force from the Dark Times. Something powerful, angry and all-consuming...Featuring the Doctor and Donna as played by David Tennant and Catherine Tate in the hit series from BBC Television.
You can order the CD online in our shop here for the spec…

David's Final Doctor Who Script Moved Him To Tears

David told Jo Whiley on Radio 1 yesterday that he 'might have had a little cry' whilst reading his final Doctor Who script. He said:
"I might have had a little cry. They were brilliant scripts and very moving. It was quite a big deal really. I sort of turned the phone off and made sure I could read it straight through without too much interruption."
He also said that he doesn't know how he'll feel when his last day on set comes around in about six weeks time:
"I don't know. It'll be interesting. The last day, of course, isn't the last scenes as filming is now always out of schedule. So I don't know if I'll be sadder on the last day or filming the final scenes. That remains to be seen. It's weird because it's been four years. It 's been so all consuming and so life changing. It's been such a big thing."
You can listen to Jo Whiley via BBC iPlayer here.
David's interview is around 2 hours into the show.

David In Talks For Hamlet Film

David has confirmed that he is in talks for a film version of Hamlet.
David told Absolute Radio's Christian O'Connell's Breakfast Show a movie version of Hamlet is a "possibility", adding: "It's being talked about and it would be good if we could make it work but it's quite complicated."
He went on: "The plan as I've heard it is that it would be quite a small-scale thing for the BBC. I think we would find a location and do it but it wouldn't be done like a full drama either, it would consciously portray its theatrical roots."
He also revealed that he was supposed to appear in the first series of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl with Billie Piper and said: "There was a plan to do that in the first year. The dates didn't work out so I couldn't do it but it involved some reins I believe. I was happy to be trussed up in any way that Billie saw fit!"
