David Tennant's Prison

In breaking news today from an insider at the BBC it was revealed that BBC Bosses have a dastardly plan to keep their top rating show Doctor Who on air for ever (or at least until the license fee is cancelled).

Our insider, known only as Mr X and who only ever appears in silhouetted outline, revealed the following :-

"David Tennant thinks he has signed a contract for another three years. Little does he know that written in the same contract that he signed but in invisible ink is a clause that gives the BBC use of his body and soul until the end of time. Even if he tries to break the contract or commit suicide to get out of it he will simply re-generate into the body of a middle aged Irishman who can only play mindless thugs and crazy scientists who have psychotic alter egos. He's Damned For All Eternity!"

We tried to speak to David Tennant directly to get his view on all this, but he was quickly wheeled out of sight strapped to a trolley with a gag in his mouth. He just managed to scrawl the words "Help Me!" on a card in crayon before disappearing into the inky depths of Broadcasting House.

As usual the BBC were unavailable for comment, but just waved a wad of hundred pound notes in our faces and laughed maniacally.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
