David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Thursday 25th November 2010

As David Tennant is reading the Book At Bedtime each night this week (10.45pm on BBC Radio 4) the David Tennant Treat 4 Today each day this week is looking at David Tennant and / or Tenth Doctor books.

The book today is called End Of Ten and is by Stephen James Walker.

The book was published by Telos in August 2010 and is available at this link and is £30 for the hardback and £14.99 for the paperback (plus postage in both cases).

It is about 220 pages in length but less than half of those pages are proper narrative. The remaining pages are about the cast (David Tennant gets one page), synposis of the Specials, about the ratings and even all the comic strips.

I must admit that I haven't read all this book. When it first arrived I was disappointed at how little narrative there was and how much statistical type of data. I then started reading and was horrified that the first paragraph said that the Specials were because David was playing Hamlet and not the other way around!

I think that for a complete collection you should buy the book but that's about all.

Below are scans of the first few pages of the book. Click on each one for a larger version.
