David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Thursday 29th December 2011

Continuing a mini-look at David Tennant's career during 2011, the David Tennant Treat 4 Today is about his public appearances.

David wasn't on as many television or radio shows this year as he was on previous years (hopefully he will be in 2012!) so the clip I've chosen today is when he introduced Fright Night at one of the screenings in August.

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Wednesday 28th December 2011

Continuing the theme this week of the David Tennant Treat 4 Today looking at various aspects of David Tennant's career during 2011, today it's the turn of his audio work.

Lots of fans have posted about the vast volume of audio work David has done this year. Of course recording voiceovers for television programmes or radio plays are a very fast turnaround, especially for an actor as experienced as David. For example something like the five Book At Bedtime slots he read for BBC Radio Four in November were broadcast over five nights but he could have easily recorded them all in a morning or less.

With such a choice of audio (especially if you include his radio appearances during the year), it's been difficult to choose just one clip!

Click here for the one I chose. (It's a tough job but someone has to do it!)

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Tuesday 27th December 2011


Continuing the theme of looking at different aspects of David Tennant's career during 2011 as the David Tennant Treat 4 Today this week, today it's the turn of Fright Night.

Of course David filmed Fright Night during 2010 but it was released during 2011.

The movie probably wasn't quite the success that the movie company hoped it would be but it did recoup its costs quite early on and 99% of the reviews spoke very favourably about David Tennant's portrayal as Peter Vincent. This must have been one of the hardest roles in the movie to attempt as Roddy McDowall made that character so famous in the original movie.

On a personal note, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Press Screening of the movie in Leicester Square a few weeks before it was released either here or in the US. Although it was nice to have seen it before most people, it was quite a flat screening as the people of Her Majesty's Press don't portray much emotion at this type of event. But I did hear several people praise David (and only David) as they left the screening. On the downside I spent about a third of the screening wondering why the soundtrack was so bad in the movie. I then realised that the sound I could hear was all the Press nosily eating the free popcorn we were given!

Here is the clip from Fright Night where Peter Vincent first meets Charlie. The clip is introduced by David Tennant!

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Monday 26th December 2011

For the final days of 2011, the David Tennant Treat 4 Today each day will be a look at various aspects of David Tennant's career during 2011.
For the majority of David's fans, 2011 will be forever remembered as the year he performed in Much Ado About Nothing at the Wyndham's Theatre in London.
He and Catherine Tate announced the run on Saturday 8th January on BBC Breakfast. Tickets immediately went on sale and the massive Delfont Macintosh website immediately crashed! It's no wonder that The Independent recently called it the hottest selling play of the year!
First Night was Monday 16th May with the Press Night being 1st June. They played 112 performances although David only played 110 as he had to miss two during to losing his voice.
Below are some photos from the production. Click each for a larger version.

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Saturday 10th December 2011


The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is an extract from an interview with Arabella Weir which appeared on the Doctor Who Advent Calendar earlier this week. (You can view the whole interview here.)

Arabella will be in the Doctor Who episode which will be broadcast on BBC One on Christmas Day but lots of David Tennant fans will know her as he was her lodger for several years. I can understand why David stayed with her for so long because (at the risk of sounding like a name-dropper!) I've swapped a few emails with her and she's a lovely person.

The relevant part of the BBC interview is:

"I met Tom Baker doing a voice-over when David Tennant wasn't at all well known. We were doing this voice-over together and I said to Tom, 'Oh, my friend's a really, really big Doctor Who fan,' and he replied, 'Wait!' He got his cheque book out and asked, 'What his name?' I said 'David Tennant'. He wrote, 'To David Tennant, seventeen pounds forty five', signed it and I asked him what it meant. He said, 'He'll know...'"

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 2nd December 2011

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today goes back to 2004 but it’s probably a page that lots of David Tennant fans will have missed.

It’s on the National Theatre website and is about Martin McDonagh’s wonderful play The Pillowman.

If you ever get a chance to see a production of this play (or to watch David’s version at the NT archives) then I’d really recommend it as it’s a fascinating play which is really well written and has a lot of humour in it considering it is such a dark subject.

Click here to read David Tennant’s reviews and follow the links on the right side of that page for more details (and photos) of the play.

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Monday 17th October 2011


The David Tennant Treat 4 Today has been suggested by Elizabeth.

It's the spoof Twitter account called THEDavidTennant.

It clearly states that it is a spoof account (although that doesn't stop some people thinking it is really David's account!) and it raises money for Comic Relief although it hasn't been updated recently.

If you read back on some of the tweets from the account, they are very amusing.

When we first joined Twitter in early 2009, THEDavidTennant account was the David Tennant account with the most followers, until we overtook that title and never looked back!
