David Tennant has said that he has missed being on the 'Doctor Who' set while taking a break to do theatre.

The actor told Doctor Who magazine, "I'm excited to be doing 'Hamlet', but I have got very at home in Cardiff."

"I love that crew. I love that set-up. I love the show, so I'm missing that. I miss Russell's writing."

Tennant is due to return to the 'Doctor Who' set next year to film four special episodes of the show.

The actor said: "It's nice to know that I'm coming back."

"Shakespeare's all right, but he's lacking in spaceships."
