The lights are on
David Tennant, a former Dr. Who (and apparent Dr. Pepper aficionado), will be the narrator for Kinect Sports Rivals.
In the video below, which shows off a little bit of the game, Tennant shares his personal athletic achievements, as well as his own experiences with video games. In the video he says the last game that really grabbed his attention was Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Did not see that one coming, but I don't begrudge him the gig.
I hope for his sake the title doesn't bomb though, he is my favorite of the newer Doctors after all.
And yes, he would be just "The Doctor" as I believe the "Doctor Who" bit is just a recurring joke.
David Tennant is awesome! Always glad to hear news of him. I wonder if he'll continue with video game voice acting. I'd much rather see him act in a game I'll actually play though :/
I won't lie; this actually make me want to pick up the game.
Meh Kinect, but on the bright side maybe this gig will land him roles in much better games.
Obligatory "ITS THE DOCTOR NOT DR. WHO YOU SCRUB" whovian comment.
This game actually looks REALLY fun. Gonna pick it up when I get a room mate so I can play it with someone.
I for one can't wait for this game. Always had fun playing Kinect Sports. I know, how dare I play a game for fun.
Dr Who? Amateurs.....
Yeah, I have to reiterate what's already been said and that the character is simply called "The Doctor" and is not named Dr. Who.
Tennant is now the only reason I want this game.
How long do you think it'll be before this article's title gets changed to "Former Doctor Who Star David Tennant Lending His Voice To Kinect Sports Rivals"?
No one yet? Really? Okay, then:
It's The Doctor.....
Not the biggest fan of Xbox one, I do however understand why they'd pick him to narrate. He does have that sort of voice that suits a role like this.
