David Tennant was announced to be the Tenth Doctor, exactly 9 years ago today!
Speaking at the time, David said: “I am delighted, excited and honoured to be the Tenth Doctor! I grew up loving Doctor Who and it has been a lifelong dream to get my very own TARDIS.”
“Russell T Davies is one of the best writers television has ever had, and I’m chuffed to bits to get the opportunity to work with him again. I’m also really looking forward to working with Billie Piper who is so great as Rose.”
“Taking over from Chris is a daunting prospect; he has done a fantastic job of reinventing the Doctor for a new generation and is a very tough act to follow.”

" The man who abhors violence, never carrying a gun, but this is the truth, Doctor. You take ordinary people and you fashion them into weapons… behold your Children of Time." - Davros
