This news is not surprising (folks on the Web have been re-attaching David Tennant to the role for months), and I think it smacks of desperation after a serious ret-con left a bad taste in many mouths. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy to see these two again!
…..so I was happily surprised to find this just now, from last year(!). For David Tennant, this role is now as comfortable as an old sock. 🙂
