"I grew up loving Doctor Who and it has been a lifelong dream to get my very own Tardis. Chris has done a fantastic job of reinventing the Doctor and is a very tough act to follow."

David will be paired with Billie Piper. seen with him right. who has signed for a second series as the Doctor's feisty sidekick Rose Tyler.

He will make his debut during a Christmas special after the current series ends in a battle with the Daleks.
