BBC confirms Doctor Who series five

The BBC has announced there will be a fifth series of Doctor Who, although it won't be until 2010 and David Tennant is doubtful to reprise his role as the Time Lord.

Reports suggest Tennant is off to play Hamlet with the Royal Shakespeare Company from July to November next year, thereby effectively putting the kybosh on a 2009 outing. Series four will hit the small screen in Spring 2008 followed by a Xmas special. This year's yule extravaganza - Voyage of the Damned - features popstress Kylie Minogue as a Titanic waitress.

David Tennant will, however, put in an appearance in 2009 with three specials, according to the Beeb.
