The BBC website is awash with coverage of The End of Time, Part Two – as is most of the internet – as Doctor Who approaches a rare change of gear and the Tenth Doctor (the popular David Tennant) makes way for his successor.
First up there are interviews with Tennant, firstly on ComicBookMovie.com who feature the actor’s interview with MTV recently, in which he reveals he received a presentation Sonic Screwdriver and is happy to make a return in a multi-Doctor story at some point in the future. After all, he’s still got the suit:
“And I do have The Doctor’s suit now, hanging up in my wardrobe â€” the brown and the blue. I haven’t tried it on yet, but I’m sure there will come a day when I’ll be dancing around at midnight, frightening the neighbors.”
Meanwhile Tennant has given his last interview as the incumbent Doctor to BBC entertainment reporter Lizo Mzimba:
â€œIt feels like weâ€™ve been building up to this episode for 4 and a half years,â€Â the actorÂ told BBC News Entertainment Correspondent Lizo Mzimba. â€œThis is the moment weâ€™ve been heading towards, and it feels very exciting. Iâ€™m really excited for people to see it, but itâ€™ll be odd once itâ€™s gone.â€

There’s also a front page banner on www.bbc.co.uk as well as an examination of the Time Lord’s previous incarnations, while Den of Geek are offering two new images from The End of Time, Part Two – one of which shows the Tenth Doctor scratched and his suit torn…
…which is how we saw Matt Smith in some early location photos, and Smith himself is the focus of several news features on this first day of 2010.
In The Times, Smith is listed as someone to “Watch out for” in the new year, where it is noted that:
Unless you saw the low-rated political soap Party Animals or Polly Stenhamâ€™s play That Face you wonâ€™t know the face â€” but what a face it is big, long, putty-nosed and framed by a flop of dark hair blond hair!
