Sci Fi Wire recently conducted an e-mail interview with the Doctor, David Tennant in which he discusses the third season of the hit BBC show.
Tennant said it was difficult shooting the final scene with cast member Billie Piper, who left the show, saying: “Of course that scene meant that Billie was leaving the show (although it wasn’t the final scene she shot), and that was very sad, she is a great actor and had become a great friend.”
The Doctor also discusses briefly his next companion. Set to join the show during its third season, Freema Agyeman will play Martha Jones, who is a medical student. Tennant touches upon this upcoming relationship saying that “The Doctor and Martha have a very different relationship to the Doctor and Rose. The Doctor doesn’t really think he needs a new traveling companion at the moment, but Martha makes herself indispensable.”
David Tennant also doesn’t believe Freema will have much of a problem fitting in to the Doctor Who universe, expressing little doubt she will be a great addition, saying “She is going to be brilliant.”
The third season will begin airing in Great Britain this spring on BBC.
