Britain's best-known time traveler is ending his journey.

The BBC says that Scottish actor David Tennant will leave the long-running science-fiction series "Doctor Who" in just over a year.

Tennant, 37, has played the show's time- and space-traveling alien hero since 2005. He will appear in a Christmas special and four hourlong episodes to be aired in 2009 and early 2010.

But he said this week that when the series returns for a full season in 2010, "it won't be with me."

"Doctor Who" was first broadcast in 1963 and is one of the BBC's longest-running and most popular programs. Tennant is the 10th actor to play the title character, who has the power to regenerate in a new body.
