David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Monday 27th September 2010


The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a link to the scripts for David Tennant's final episodes of Doctor Who from the website about the Russell T Davies / Ben Cook book The Writers Tale.

If you haven't read the book then I'd really recommend it as it shows what goes into writing the series and gives an indication about how RTD's mind works.

The scripts themselves are fascinating to read when you compare what is written on the page to the emotion that David puts into the words on the screen.

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Sunday 19th September 2010


The David Tennant TV 4 Today is a video from Tennant's Video Diaries. This is a video which I chose for two reasons.
The first reason David himself will explain to you within the first five seconds (!) and the second reason is because it shows the madness that he had to put up with at the start of filming his first series of Doctor Who!

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Thursday 16th September 2010


The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is the second part of the interview from SFX Magazine in 2006 which was chosen and submitted by @Raffica


Part one of the interview was posted as the David Tennant Treat 4 Today on Tuesday 24th August.

In this part of the interview (conducted while they were filming Love & Monsters) Billie Piper discusses working with two different Doctors, they are asked about the kissing scenes and David talks about using an English accent on Doctor Who.

BILLIE, HOW HAS THE CHANGE IN DOCTOR AFFECTED YOU? BP: Well, they're different people; Chris and David are very different. Both equally as nice and a lot of fun. So, it's fine. You just get on with it.
HAS THE CHANGE IN DOCTOR BROUGHT OUT DIFFERENT THINGS IN ROSE? BP: Yeah, I think I am different as Rose when I'm playing opposite David. It's a different kind of energy. DT: But then Rose is growing-up as well, isn't she? BP: Rose is growing-up. She's 20 this year and she's come on in leaps and bounds, I think, since the first series. She's a lot more proactive and she saves the day quite a few times. It's just a natural progression, really. And it's worked out really nicely. DT: Rose's family are a big theme for the whole of the second season, actually. BP: It's quite domestic. Maybe as domestic, if not more this year. I know she's going to get to travel with Mickey as well, which again throws the dynamic into a different place. You know, it's fun. It's great.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST SCENE TOGETHER? BP: Oh God, what was our first scene together? DT: It was at the end of the Christmas special. We were both in it together, but we didn't have a lot to do together. It's when I tell Harriet Jones to go and stuff herself. That was the first scene we ever shot. BP: Oh yeah. We were just off the M4 weren't we? I remember that, because we were in London. DT: In a wasteland in London. BP: You know as you come in – if you want the details – as you come in off the M4 and you see the Lucozade sign on the left. It was just on the right [laughs]. I know, because I like that sign.

YOU SNOG WITH DAVID. BP: I'm telling you, she's a little minx.

WHAT WAS HE LIKE IN COMPARISON TO CHRIS?
BP: How do they compare? Oh, I don't know. DT: I'm sitting right here. BP: Different, just different. They're different men. I don't know how to answer that, really. Both great. I had a longer kiss with you, which I really enjoyed. DT: But you were more proactive in this kiss. BP: Yeah. DT: You were making it happen. BP: Yeah. It was quite sexy. Quite nice lips. DT: Thanks very much. Yours aren't too bad either. BP: It was fun.

WHAT ARE THE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR CHARACTER? DT: I'm 950 years old, that's the biggest similarity. BP: And he's got two hearts. DT: And I've got two hearts, yeah. BP: Because there's a lot of love there. DT: Ahh, too much. BP: I think I'm quite ballsy like Rose. I like a bit of a gamble and that's something that I tapped into when I read the script and that's what made me want to go to the audition. I like people like that... Would I ever wear her clothes? No! DT: She's got some nice gear! BP: Yes, she has some good clothes. It's not my style, that's Rose's style. DT: Sure, sure.

WOULD YOU LIKE ROSE AND DOCTOR TO GET MORE ROMANTICALLY INVOLVED? BP: No. DT: I think... BP: I like it that you can't put your finger on it. DT: Yeah. I... [realises the double entendre, much laughter] BP: Sexual! DT: I think it's like all these relationships, like Mulder and Scully and Moonlighting, you know. Moonlighting jumped the shark when they got together, didn't it? I think you have to be very careful. Which doesn't mean to say that we don't see the relationship developing and becoming something that it maybe hasn't before. But I think you have to be very careful with those things. BP: You want it to happen, but at the same time you don't want it to happen. It's one of those weird things. It's like Ross and Rachel... DT: Yeah. BP: You want them to get it back on, but then you don't have the anticipation. DT: Your expectation is actually more exciting. BP: Yeah, exactly.

YOU'RE CURRENTLY FILMING WITH PETER KAY... DT: We are, yeah.
WHAT'S IT LIKE? BP: Hard work. DT: Hard work, yeah, just because you can't stop laughing, unfortunately. He just channels funny. BP: You just look at him and you laugh. That's not going to sound very nice. But no. You see him on the telly, his shows and his stand- ups and you think, 'I can't believe I'm working with you!' DT: Yeah, yeah. BP: It's so exciting. DT: And when you see him done up as he is done up… BP: And he does his gags as well.

ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE INTEREST YOU'VE HAD? YOU WERE BEING DISCUSSED ON NEWSNIGHT BY GERMAINE GREER, MENTIONED IN VOGUE... DT: What did Germaine Greer say about you? BP: I don't know. DT: What did Germaine Greer say?

SHE SAID YOUR WERE ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING ACTORS RIGHT NOW. DT: Quite right too.

BUT DID YOU EXPECT TO BECOME THE BIGGEST STAR OF THE SHOW? BP: Erm, well... [DT looked pained] DT: Who is that?! Get rid of him! Please leave! BP: Yeah, that's all about to change! DT: Not at all. BP: No, erm. It's very cool being in Vogue. I like that. It's an exciting time for me to be alive and then to do something that I've wanted to do since I've been a kid. That means so much to me. And being here tonight and watching it. I just can't quite believe that it's all really happened and I'm really liking it and loving it and want to continue to do it for years. All of those things are just a bonus, really. The fact that I'm working everyday as an actress makes me really happy.

SO YOU'RE STICKING WITH DOCTOR WHO? BP: Yes, I'm sticking with the Who.

ARE THERE OTHER ROLES YOU'D REALLY LIKE TO DO? DT: I don't think you know until it's written. BP: No. You're right. And also, it's hard to think further than... DT: Tomorrow. BP: Yeah in the midst of everything that's going on at the moment, it's quite hard to consider our future, I think. But, you know. Scripts are welcome [laughs]. I don't know. I don't have any big projects; I don't really have a plan. Maybe I should have, but I don't. [To David] Do you? DT: No I don't. I've never done that. I've never done that, 'In three years time I have to be starring in X'. BP: No. And life changes so much all the time…DT: You can't know, and you're only going to frustrate yourself thinking like that. BP: If you haven't got those things, yeah. DT: I think we've both been very lucky. We've had some fantastic scripts that come our way... BP: So far it's been brilliant. DT: ... and you just hope that'll continue to happen. But you can't predict what flavour they're going to taste of. BP: We were just saying downstairs that some of the telly in the UK at the moment is so brilliant and there's so much going on that it's a really exciting time to be working as a TV actor. So that's great. WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO PLAY THE DOCTOR WITH AN ENGLISH ACCENT? DT: It was what Russell had schemed, really, and there was an idea that the Doctor would imprint on Rose, like a sort of newly hatched chick. He would adopt Rose's way of speaking. And this was all explained in the Christmas special... BP: But we never filmed it. DT: The scene never got made because we ran out of time. So we're just sort of left with it now. I don't know. It's how Russell wanted to take the show and it's how he wanted the Doctor to be. BP: It would be too much of a gag if he got everyone speaking in their accents. DT: I think that was the other danger. Because Chris so brilliantly reinvented it by being Northern and being unashamed about that, it could have got a bit 'touring the regions', you know. But you're going to have to ask Russell what the thinking was behind that.

DID I HEAR A SCOTTISH ACCENT IN THE PREVIEW OF ONE OF THOSE UPCOMING EPISODES? DT: Well observed, yes. BP: That's because we're in Scotland. DT: We do end up in Scotland. BP: We have to blag our way... DT: The Doctor being an incorrigible show-off, of course, shows off that he can do the accent, which luckily... BP: He can, [Laughs]. Rose has a go, God bless her. DT: Yeah. Not good. BP: Not great.

The third and final part of the interview will be a David Tennant Treat 4 Today later so keep checking each day.

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today has been chosen by Zoe Brown and is the photo of David Tennant which is above. (Click the photo for a larger version.)

Zoe explained the reason for her choice of photo as:

"It’s a close-up shot of just David’s head and shoulders from when he attended the BAFTAs with Sarah Parish in 2005.

He’d just been announced as the Doctor, and it was the first time I’d really taken notice of him after seeing him in Casanova, so it became the first photo in my collection.

One of my friends even gave me a pencil drawing of the photo as a birthday present!

I love all the photos taken that night, because he looks so handsome in his kilt, but that one will always be my favourite."
