David Tennant

Today I'm dedicating time and space to David Tennant, the fabulously energetic and charming tenth Doctor Who.  Tennant (born April 18, 1971) is a Scottish actor who took over the role of the BBC's famous time traveler in 2005, and recently relinquished his post to newcomer Matt Smith, whose first episode airs tomorrow.

I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and have been since I was a kid.  David Tennant is certainly the most handsome Doctor they've ever cast, with his boyish, angular face, big Bambi eyes, and tall, skinny "long streak of nothing" frame.  However, once the mantle of "The Doctor" is assumed, for me, the sexiness is lost somewhat.  It just seems wrong, somehow, to fancy the Doctor - but try telling that to Rose and Martha.  Sigh.

David's career goes way beyond Doctor Who, however.  He was recently acclaimed for his performance as Hamlet at the Royal Shakespeare Company, and he has appeared in films such as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (as the dastardly Barty Crouch, Jr.).  Other notable performances include Viva Blackpool and the lead role in the BBC's Casanova.

Anyway, after the jump you'll find a gallery of David Tennant pictures, as my way of saying farewell to his wonderful portrayal of the Doctor.  Thanks David, it's been a wild ride.
