David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Saturday 30th April 2011

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a snippet from an article in The Times today by Nigel Lindsay who wrote about preparing to play Shrek on stage.

The snippet reads:
"I'm doing an [scottish] accent. The Scottish members of the ensemble are complimentary but I detect a hint of Welsh-Pakistani to be eradicated amid the Highland brogue. I call David Tennant and ask him if I can pop round and tape his voice for the Scottish accent. "I'm thinking of trying a hybrid of you and Kenny Dalglish". "If you do Kenny the tourists won't understand a word," he replies. "Yeah, but you're too fey for Shrek," I tell him. "Don't worry, I'll butch up for the tape," he assures me...!"

(Many thank to PolyG on GallifreyBase for typing the snippet.)
