Comment:
David Tennant cover. Although it says "Doctor Who" next to David Tennant, this was just before his casting was announced and the Tennant article relates to Casanova! Did the Radio Times know something we didn't? Page 166 features a preview of "the biggest TV event of the year" (Doctor Who's return of course!) and Pages 28 and 29 feature an interview with David Tennant, in which he discusses his career and his current role in Russell T Davies's Casanova. Very rare issue.
