Tall and Scottish

Oct 07, 2009

“You go into a supermarket and your face is on a cake and underpants. And all that’s very odd. It’s not what you imagine when you go to drama school, that you’ll be commemorated in plastic and icing, and cotton.” Scottish actor David Tennant is very famous in the United Kingdom. Despite his appearance in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Tennant is not that well known in America, although has spent the last four years starring in the British television institution Doctor Who, which was recently honored by the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Most Successful Sci-Fi Television Show.” We spoke to Tennant about his reasons for leaving Doctor Who, his childhood experiences with the show, his thoughts on his tenure as The Doctor, which bands he’s into, and his future plans.

Its premise is as dated as television itself—a mysterious murder in a quiet village where anyone can be the suspect—and it takes one of the U.K.‘s most well-known and beloved international TV stars, David Tennant (Doctor Who), and makes him as drab and unlikeable as he could be. Yet, despite the blasé ingredients, Broadchurch is a remarkably impressive and moving series. More

Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars

Starring David Tennant and Lindsay Duncan; Written by Russell T. Davies and Phil Ford; Directed by Graeme Harper

Dec 18, 2009

“Don’t drink the water, don’t even touch it, not one drop” warns one character in The Waters of Mars, which returns Doctor Who to form after the last two good, but not great, special episodes (The Next Doctor and Planet of the Dead). The welcome dark tone is driven by a moral dilemma faced by The Doctor, one specific to time travelers. It’s rare to find The Doctor so indecisive, so reluctant to step in, and David Tennant plays the character with the complexity and gusto we’ve come to expect since he took over the mantle of the long-running and iconic character in 2005. This is the last of three episodes to star Tennant as The Doctor before Matt Smith takes over the part next year and The Waters of Mars reminds viewers why he’s a fan-favorite and how much he’ll be missed.
