The Tenth Doctor was the tenth incarnation of the renegade Time Lord known as the Doctor. Unlike his immediate predecessor, who was plagued by melancholy due to his actions during the Last Great Time War, this incarnation was much more outgoing and genial, a demeanour that hid the "survivor's guilt" that had plagued him since the war. Over his life, however, the weight became much more pronounced. He was haunted by companions lost, enemies believed long-dead and events that threatened the fabric of time itself. He met his end after he absorbed a huge quantity of nuclear radiation whilst saving the life of his friend, Wilfred Mott, leading to his regeneration into his next incarnation.

He did what he could with a duff script but there was nothing there for him to get his teeth into. Not a bad performance but nothing spectacular going on either.

It's just a shame that come the day they didn't have him really carrying the Olympic Torch. That would have been amazing.

I think that Ten put in a good performance and pulled the best out of the script that he could, but he didn't have a lot to go on and so was never going to put in a spectacular performance. It's all down to the writing though.

Exactly this!

Yes, there was nothing wrong with his performance, but there wasn't much he could do about it.

I think Tennant did ok with what he was given, but there is nothing about his performance in this that is memorable. The script can be blamed, but even with a great script the acting isn't always there. I don't think a poor script is a fair place for blame when it comes to acting. I'm not saying he was bad, but maybe he could have done better with what he had to work with.
