Tennant is Doctor Glue?

BEEB bosses are more hopeful than ever that David Tennant WILL stay on as Doctor Who — after wooing him with a £1.5million deal.
They had feared the Scot, 37, was sure to quit after filming four more specials of the BBC1 sci-fi hit.

But last night a source said he could stay as the Timelord for the fifth series to be screened in 2010.

As TV Biz revealed, show boss Russell T Davies quit and has been replaced by top writer Steven Moffatt.

The source said: “It will be a new team and David has to meet everyone to make a final decision.

“But we’re gearing up to offer him a massive deal. He’s interested. Everyone thought he was going, but it’s not as open and shut as that.”

Filming would not start until autumn 2009, but bosses are believed to want a deal by this autumn.

The actor is making four specials this year instead of a series as he is also playing Hamlet at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The Christmas episode is now finished.

Highlight to reveal (spoiler!):

David’s real-life love Georgia Moffett, 23, returns as his daughter Jenny for one of the Who specials.
