David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Tuesday 31st July 2012


As we posted on Friday, David Tennant has been voted Favourite Doctor in a poll by the American magazine Entertainment Weekly.

This has subsequently been picked up by numerous websites over the past few days (including UnrealityTV who noticed that David Tennant received more votes than all the other ten Doctors added together!)

Accompanying the poll was an interview with Matt Smith and an article about Doctor Who.

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is the part of the article where David Tennant is mentioned.

With so many tweets today about people wanting David Tennant to carry the Olympic Torch tonight, the David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a clip from Fear Her.

However it is a funny fan-made clip (we don't often feature fan-made videos as Treats). 

Just ensure that you watch right to the end!

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Tuesday 24th July 2012



As we tweeted this morning, it was four years ago today that David Tennant played the first preview performance of Hamlet for the RSC in Stratford-Upon-Avon. To mark the anniversary the David Tennant Treat 4 Today looks at some reviews by fans of that performance.

There used to be a David Tennant forum which had lots of reviews by fans of the performances but sadly that suddenly closed so all the reviews were lost. 

Instead here is an extract from the book David Tennant A Year In The Spotlight which contains some comments posted by fans online that evening:



 
With most people having mobile phones nowadays and mobile Internet becoming so widespread, it was little wonder that even during the interval of Hamlet, reports about the play were being posted online on various David Tennant and Doctor Who fan forums. The parts that the initial reports focused on were more about how David looked and what he was wearing than on the play as a whole but almost 100 people are reported to have been online in just one thread on DoctorWhoForum.com waiting for reports! Comments posted that evening by fans included:

The play is fantastic. It's very modern dress.”

”DT - Think Secret Smile; he wears a black suit, then a tux, then in jeans and T-shirt. The whole time he's barefoot. Much ruffling of his hair, (he's doing that) and you'll be pleased to know David looks really well rested.”

”David is fantastic in it, certainly NOT the Doctor, he's playing the part so well.”

”Brilliant is the overall verdict!”

”David is using an English accent, not detrimental to the play.”

”A stunning, seriously incredible first preview, and it's only going to get better. There was a complete standing ovation at the end and the whole company came back on stage twice . DT completely took over the stage and there wasn't a bad part from anyone.”

”The sword fight, everyone went for it, at one point they thought they were going to come off the stage. Words like incredible, stunning and totally speechless at the acting ability of David.”

”And the best part is.... DT is bound and gagged at a certain point.”

A little old lady there tonight told me that she had seen Hamlet about 100 times over the years including seeing Lawrence Olivier in the role. Of course I had to ask her afterwards what she thought about this production and she said that it was one of the best that she had seen and DT was easily one of the best Hamlets!

”He has about 6/7 costume changes, including a very tight pair of jeans which shows his bum off to perfection. His undies are white with blue stripes round the top. Also got a glimpse of the appendix scar and his stomach.”

”He looks geeky but cute at some points and the play is funny where it should be and sad where it should be.”

”DT said a VERY naughty word..begins with C!”

The “naughty word” comment referred to the word country in the line “Did you think I meant country matters?” where he left a deliberate pause between the first and second syllables of the word.

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Wednesday 18th July 2012 & Happy Anniversary!

Today is the second anniversary of the David Tennant Treat 4 Today!

Our first one was posted on Sunday 18th July 2010 and since then a David Tennant Treat 4 Today has been posted each day!

During the 2 years my personal proudest moment was when former Prime Minister Gordon Brown's wife Sarah Brown tweeted that she had been 'inspired by the David Tennant Treat 4 Today' to post something each day in the lead-up to the publication of her book!

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a repeat of the first ever David Tennant Treat 4 Today which was a video of David collecting the award for Most Popular Actor at the National Television Awards in 2006 in the Royal Albert Hall.

The award is presented by Julie Andrews and David's reaction to her is really sweet (especially his bow!) plus he seems a little overwhelmed by the award and all the attention as this was one of the first awards he won.

The synopsis of the story was:

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Tuesday 10th July 2012



The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is an article which appeared in Scotland's Evening Times newspaper yesterday.

It is an interview with one of David Tennant's teachers:

"When Jacqui Wilson was a resident dance tutor at RSAMD in the early 1990s, she was barely older than her students. There was one in particular who stands out from her five years at the academy – a tall young man who had an interesting take on the request to bring a prop. 

That student had a star potential that she’s tried to foster in the thousands of young dancers she’s coached in the last 22 years. 'David Tennant was fantastic,' recalls the 44-year-old.

'I do remember that at the dance exams you had to have a prop and he came in with a rose in his teeth and wearing a top hat.

'I’m not surprised he’s done very well.

“There have been lots of actors over the years who I taught dancing. Certainly David was a stand-out.

“He was very strong – he was a natural.'"
