David Tennant on filming the 50th anniversary: “It’s lovely to be around Billie again.”

David Tennant seems to have slipped back into his former role – and his costume – very easily, as he films the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. It’s possible it’s even made him a little whistful… 
"It is strange being back in the same suit, but it also feels very familiar and comfortable," said Tennant, who is currently starring alongside another Who alumnus, Arthur Darvill, in ITV’s Broadchurch. “There’s nothing quite like Doctor Who. It has a wonderful excitement about it. I always had happy times there.”
Tenth Doctor Tennant will join his successor Matt Smith, along with former companion Rose Tyler, played by Billie Piper, on the celebratory episode, which marks this year’s Who half-century in November.
"It’s lovely to be around Billie again, even though I see her all the time anyway," Tennant told TV & Satellite Week.

Oops, it’s that Neil Cross again. I said he’d be back. In truth, fans of dull facts will be fascinated to know, this was Neil’s first script for the show and the reason we got him back so fast. He wanted to do a spooky ghost story and nailed it on his first draft. This is proper, scary Doctor Who, full of surprises and twists, and — unexpectedly — a rather gorgeous love story. Or two, maybe…

The fact is you can’t beat a haunted house, and in this show we’re delivering one of the very best.

Mark Gatiss does go on. He’s been on at me about the Ice Warriors since I took over the show. And, frankly, I’ve been disappointing him. I just wasn’t that thrilled about unearthing yet another old monster. I slightly felt we’d done all the good ones. But then, as I was sitting in my garden on the phone to Mark about Sherlock, he started pitching this story. An Ice Warrior! On a nuclear submarine! Under the polar ice cap. That would have been enough for me to say, “yes, please!” but then he had one more idea that made my hair stand on end.

It’s not for me to tell you what your favourite episodes will be, but this is one of mine.

I went to the store for 1 thing. None of these are it.
I seriously have a new collection of magazines with “Doctor Who” covers. I’ve bought every one since coming to Wales, because that just doesn’t happen in America!! I always get excited and impulsive.

I’ve got two beds; one in the house in London and one in the flat in Cardiff, and that is where I was having trouble sleeping. The one in Cardiff is the same flat David Tennant slept in and the bed has not been changed in seven years.

The Magnificent Three: Doctor Who does the wild west | Radio Times

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill reveal what is in store when The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in A Town Called Mercy

A Town called Mercy is the first time the Doctor has “done” the Old West since 1966. That story, with William Hartnell as the Doctor, was called The Gunfighters, but its working title was The Gunslingers. This time round there’s just a single Gunslinger to contend with, but as he is seven feet tall and has a Gatling gun in place of his right arm, one is more than enough….
