David Tennant on 50th

David Tennant and Matt Smith at 'Doctor Who' 50th read-through

David Tennant has provided new hints about his role in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. The actor told SFX that fans can expect to see a "slightly different" side to his Tenth Doctor when he is paired with Matt Smith's Eleventh."The Doctor tends to lead every scene he is in and when you are sharing that out it becomes slightly different," Tennant explained.

Tennant said that he was not surprised to be asked to reprise his Doctor for the 50th anniversary:  "There is a precedent to this, isn't there?" he said. "For a long time I was starting to think it was never going to happen, so there was an element of surprise there. But the general concept of a multi-Doctor story was something I always expected."

Tennant went on to say that the special will appeal to both the long-term fan and also to the casual viewer of Doctor Who."Doctor Who has managed to be a big success over the past few years by being very accessible to everyone,""We have never been about going for a highly particular audience - although that audience is the reason Doctor Who has lived for 50 years - but rather to have a very broad appeal. I think that aspect is something that people will feel is quite evident in this special as well."
