David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Sunday 15th May 2011

Regular followers of the David Tennant Treat 4 Today will remember that back in November 2010, when David Tennant was reading A Book At Bedtime, we had a week looking at various David Tennant books which are available.

A new one called "David Tennant 2009 and 2010" was published in March 2011 so today the David Tennant Treat 4 Today are some pages from that book.

The book is 311 pages in length plus there are 16 pages of photos (although none of them are new) and it looks at David Tennant's career during the two years. As well as how his projects were reported in the press, the book also looks at how it was reported online and his fans' reactions. David's own words are used in most of the interviews.

It is a not-for-profit book as all proceeds are donated to the cancer charity AICR and it can be purchased from DavidTennantBook.com for £9.99 (including postage) within the UK or it can be delivered abroad. It is also available on Amazon.

Below are scans from three pages which cover this period two years ago. Click the graphics for readable versions.

(Apologies for the crooked scans but it's a thick book and I didn't want to damage the spine!)

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 13th May 2011



The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a short extract from the new Nick Hern Book which has been produced in conjunction with David Tennant's production of Much Ado About Nothing.

As well as the play, it has a five page interview with David Tennant and Catherine Tate, plus interviews with director Josie Rouke, set designer Robert Jones and composer Michel Bruce.

There is also a one week Rehearsal Diary by Robert Hastie and the David Tennant Treat 4 Today comes from that. (Be warned that it includes a SPOILER regarding the staging of the play.)

"Wednesday 6th April
We start the day testing some hardware. The production team has been here since seven o'clock constructing the giant revolving floor that will form part of the centre of the set. Jordan, the Assistant Stage Manager, plays with the controls; it will be his job to operate them during performance. In order to test how fast the revolve can go with the whole cast on it, everyone in the room climbs abroad, and as not all of the company have arrived yet, the staff of the Bush Theatre are recruited from their office upstairs to make up the body count. We all stand around the edge of the revolving disc as Jordan turns up the dial. Maximum speed is hardly a ride on the waltzers, but the novelty of it still has us grinning like children."

The book is available directly from the Nick Hern Books website here or Amazon have it available at a 10% discount. (Please note DavidTennantOnTwitter.com does not make anything from the sale of these books.)

The book will also be available at the theatre.

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Tuesday 10th May 2011

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is quite a short one today.

Yesterday the David Tennant Treat 4 Today was the Music Of The Spheres sketch so today it is an outtake from the filming of that scene.




Monday, 9 May 2011

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Monday 9th May 2011

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is the Music Of The Spheres sketch.

This was shown at the first Doctor Who Proms in the Royal Albert Hall in July 2008. As David Tennant had just started performing Hamlet in Stratford-Upon-Avon three nights earlier, he was not at the Proms himself so instead they showed this sketch which was written by Russell T Davies.

(Having been at the Proms myself, I can't tell you how effective it was to see all the music fluttering into the hall!)

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today has been suggested today by Wend (aka deejaymacdee).

The clip is from The Making Of Hamlet BBC programme and is the section about Shakespeare's famous "To be or not to be" speech.

Wend says she has chosen this video (which may or may not play outside the UK) because "There are some gorgeous 'wide shots' of DT during the filming of the soliloquy. This is the best bit of the Beeb's website!"
