Doctor Who David Tennant Tribute Vid

I've been trying to find a way to honor Ten and his years after "The End of Time", and this felt like a nice way of doing it. Hopefully, I've made him justice.

This vid is a fun nostalgic return to the adventures of the 10th Doctor Who.  The use of Come Sail Away was a good touch to help set the mood.  The vid features many of the Doctors companions:  Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Sarah Jones, Captain Jack, Jenny and even River Song.

He had such favorable reactions (MUCH love for everyone who commented! Seriously, I can't thank you enough) and I just loved him so much in it that I couldn't just cut him. And, in fact, this turned out to be a very good decision once I managed to figure out an ending for his "B plot", which made a pretty good ending for the vid itself… when the Doc regenerates, his older self isn't gone, he just stays home and watches his current self on the TV. ;)

di0br uses Christopher Eccleston the 9th doctor to knit together all of the other parts of the video.  Setting him as someone watching the other vids on a TV flipping channels as a transition between songs.  I would have loved to see a moment when Eccleston changed the channel and had Tennant telling him not to blink.

At 7 minutes long it seems long at first but worth watching.  The length works as a tribute vid.  I would like to see some of the parts made into individual vids themselves.

  • “It's the end of the world as we know it” would make a fun vid there are so many scenes to pull from in addition to the ones feature here.
  • "Bohemian rhapsody" the use of it with clips from Human Nature was brilliant.  I would love to see it expanded to a full vid in itself adding clips from Utopia as well.  The anguish of the Master before he is let go would add an interesting element and pull the two events together through the watches.
  • A Jack Tubthumping vid just writes it’s self
  • "Sympathy for the devil"  I wished this song started with Mr Saxon and want a vid of that featuring Mr Saxon and the Master
  • Last but not least "I think I'm a clone now" would make a hilarious vid not only looking at the multiple doctors but also the master when he reproduced himself in The End of Time and also use Jenny the Doctors daughter.

Doctor Who to Regenerate in 2010

David-Tennant David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who after the new season.

David Tennant comments "I've had the most brilliant, bewildering and life changing time working on Doctor Who. I have loved every day of it. It would be very easy to cling on to the TARDIS console forever and I fear that if I don't take a deep breath and make the decision to move on now, then I simply never will. You would be prising the TARDIS key out of my cold dead hand. This show has been so special to me, I don't want to outstay my welcome.

"This is all a long way off, of course. I'm not quitting, I'm back in Cardiff in January to film four special episodes which will take Doctor Who all the way through 2009. I'm still the Doctor all next year but when the time finally comes I'll be honoured to hand on the best job in the world to the next lucky git - whoever that may be.

"I'd always thought the time to leave would be in conjunction with Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner who have been such a huge part of it all for me. Steven Moffat is the most brilliant and exciting writer, the only possible successor to Russell and it was sorely tempting to be part of his amazing new plans for the show. I will be there, glued to my TV when his stories begin in 2010.

"I feel very privileged to have been part of this incredible phenomenon, and whilst I'm looking forward to new challenges I know I'll always be very proud to be the Tenth Doctor (BBC)."

This has to be one of the worse kept secrets in scifi.  It will be a loss to the series and if I might be cliché, an end to an era.

No one has effected the franchise as much as Tennant since Tom Baker took on the role.  I am not sure what they will do to follow him, but I am sure it will be change.  If I had to predict there next move, I would say they will cast someone unexpected for the role such as the first non-Caucasian or a woman.  Might I recommend a regeneration mishap that causes the new Doctor to look like Martha Jones?

I know that is a bit crazy.  Who would you like to see as the new Doctor?
