While the rest of us weep at the thought of the loss of Broadchurch, David Tennant has his reasons to be cheerful that the show's not coming back after the third series.
Tennant was the celebrity guest on tonight's Top Gear (March 12th), where he said that he doesn't think the show could have carried on any longer.
"This is it. I think we should do three and leave them wanting more," he said.
Asked whether he struggled with the level of secrecy the show requires, Tennant admitted that he doesn't enjoy the military-style precautions that come with being in Broadchurch.
"It's always been the way," he said. "Anything that's a thriller has elements you want to hold back.
"Being on the show gets really tiresome because everything is sent with a password. One script has one password, another has another password.
"I just can't keep up. I end up being a grumpy old man saying 'just send me some paper!'"
Tennant of course played the tenth Doctor in Doctor Who – and he got quite defensive of Peter Davison, who played the fifth Doctor.
Which is perhaps understandable, seeing as Peter Davison also happens to be Tennant's father-in-law.
When Top Gear host Chris Harris asked Tennant to give him "more Tom Baker than Peter Davison", Tennant retorted with "Don't diss the Davison!"
And viewers were quick to pick up on it:
no idear what they are talking about on #TopGear but david tennant just said 'Dont Diss The Davison' you tell e'm Doctor!- Kev Murphy (@drwhofanman) March 12, 2017
We hope Harris has learned his lesson.
