Doctor Who Goes To Roswell And Faces The U.S. Army

Here's the first image from "Dreamland," the animated Doctor Who story featuring the voice of David Tennant, which will air in the UK via the "red button" video service later this year. His hair has never been spikier!

I have to say the new animation style doesn't look quite as succesful as the slightly warmer look the Doctor got in the "Infinite Quest" animated series a while back. Still, every last dose of David Tennant is precious at this point, weird computer-generated face or otherwise.

After "Dreamland" appears via the red button thingy, it will be on BBC2 as part of their children's programming block.

According to the release, "Dreamland" sees the Doctor landing in "the infamous alien hot spot" Roswell in 1958:

During a visit to a local diner he stumbles upon a mysterious alien artefact that leads him on a mission to rescue Rivesh Mantilax from the threat of the Viperox and the clutches of the American military.

Joining David Tennant will be Georgia Moffett (Doctor Who, Spooks) in the role of Cassie Rice – the Doctor's new animated companion.

David Warner (Wallander, Hogfather) also stars as the leader of the ruthless Viperox.

The BBC's Doctor Who site will be hosting a "Dreamland" blog, featuring images, interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff in the run-up to the show appearing.
