Contract Talks?

The Sunday Express claims that Doctor Who star David Tennant has been engaged in contract talks with the BBC – which could mean that he remains as the Doctor until 2011.

Its a story that stems from the News of the World – effectively the Sunday version of The Sun, which has a good record at these sort of things. It’s been picked up by a couple of mainstream online sources too.

A source close to the programme saying the popular star is “talking about coming back” and is “set to open up negotiations”.

And last night a BBC executive admitted: “We just can’t lose him.”

"The BBC is determined to make sure David doesn’t go without a fight," an inside source was quoted as saying. "He is an integral part of the series."

For us, now, however, it means very little. We get to see the Tenth Doctor at Christmas and then at intervals throughout 2009.

There’s also very little we can do about it either way,,,
