Tennant's Doctor Who hangs on in Dreamland

A 3D CG David Tennant stars in Doctor Who: Dreamland.Before Doctor Who fans say good bye to David Tennant in the BBC's final three specials of 2009, they'll get a little extra colorful bonus Tennant from the Beeb's Red Button service and the Who website.

Doctor Who: "Dreamland" is the show's first venture into "3D" CG animation, and that makes for a stylistic representation of the Tennant's tall, skinny Time Lord. Writer Phil Ford (a veteran of both live action Who and Torchwood) takes the The Doctor to a diner in Roswell, New Mexico where all manner of alien shenanigans are going on.

American fans won't get to see the six-part series in its first run, as they're blocked out of video feeds on the BBC's websites. If only there were other websites that showed online video (illegally) posted by fans. Oh, well.

Georgia Moffett joins Tennant for the adventure. That's an interesting addition because she's Doctor #5 Peter Davison's daughter. She also played the genetic daughter of Tennant's Doctor in a story entitled "The Doctor's Daughter." So, she was a Doctor's daughter playing "The Doctor's Daughter." Along the way, she dated Tennant outside of shooting. She basically has Doctors all over the place -- though she plays a new companion in this story.

After all the episodes run on Red Button and the web, BBC 2 will air the show in its assembled entirety. It's all set to begin this fall.
