This is from the David Tennant fan page on Facebook.

David has announced that he is leaving Doctor Who during his acceptance speech at tonight's National Television Awards. Speaking live from the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford Upon Avon David explained that he will be returning to Cardiff in January 2009 to film the 2009 Doctor Who specials, but when the show returns for a new series in 2010 it will be without him as the Doctor.

David said: "I’ve had the most brilliant, bewildering and life-changing time working on Doctor Who. I have loved every day of it. It would be easy to cling on to the Tardis console but I fear that if I don’t take a deep breath and make the decision to move on now, I never will. You would be prising the Tardis key out of my cold dead hand. This show has been so special to me, I don’t want to outstay my welcome." He added: "This is all a long way off, of course. I’m not quitting, I’m back in January to film four special episodes which will take Doctor Who all the way through 2009. I’m still the Doctor all next year but when the time finally comes I’ll be honoured to hand on the best job in the world to the next lucky git, whoever that may be. I feel very privileged to have been part of this incredible phenomenon. I’m looking forward to new challenges but I’ll always be proud to be the 10th Doctor."
