On Doctor Who: The Crimson Hand, Panini had this to say in Doctor Who Magazine No 439, cover dated 19 October 2011:

The Crimson Hand set for 2012!
Doctor Who Magazine is pleased to announce that Panini will be recommencing the publishing of its Doctor Who collected comic reprint range in 2012, with the long-awaited release of the third and final volume of the Tenth Doctor comic strip adventures, The Crimson Hand. ... More information on the release date and price will be announced in the coming months.

Yes, The Crimson Hand has been advertised in DWM after a 2 year hiatus so the final collection of David Tennant strip stories should appear in late spring 2012 = fortunately before the Mayans predict the end of the world!
Interestingly, Amazon carry a review for the book - even though it has yet to appear!
