David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Sunday 8th September 2013

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is an interview from The Daily Record with Bernard Cribbins from 24th December 2009 where he talks about working with David Tennant in Doctor Who.

For copyright reasons the whole interview can not be copied but Bernard's comments about David are:

"Then we have David, who jumps about like he's on springs with a spike up his backside. He is very up, very intense and then, at the drop of a hat, will turn round and run away from you.

"He seemed to spend a lot of time running, I have to say.

"He never stops jumping about and being exciting. It's totally different and I think it's wonderful. He's a great lad and I've enjoyed working with him enormously.

"I still have quite a bit of energy even though I'm very, very old. But I always appreciated actors who came on set and stared at you and glared at you and did things. It gets you going."

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Saturday 7th September 2013

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a section of David Tennant talking about playing Romeo in Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in 2000 and later at the Barbican Theatre in London.

David also discusses other Shakespeare roles he would like to play.

David said:

"I had always wanted to play Romeo. I thought it was a great part full of very recognizable emotions and motivations, with a vibrant youthful energy and a sense of poetry with which anyone who has ever been a self-dramatizing adolescent can identify. It is suffused with the robust certainty and cynicism of youth, but crowned with a winning and rather beautiful open-heartedness. And it's a great story brilliantly told, full of passion, wit, politics, intrigue, life and death, and topped off with lashings of sex and violence. And we had a great director at the helm in the shape of Michael Boyd, whose work I had been thrilled by for years at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow and more recently at the RSC itself. His productions had always seemed to me to have the power to make the theatre a truly magical place where things happen that could only happen in a theatre, so that theatre isn't the poor relation of the feature-film but a genuine living art form specific to itself and nothing else. I'd always been desperately keen to work with Michael and to do it with this play was a dream come true.

And I was running out of time. There is no explicit reference in the text to how old Romeo is, but he is, undeniably, a young man. I didn't have very many years left. I'd always said to myself that it was a part I would have to do before my thirtieth birthday or not at all. Actors older than that have played the part, of course, and I don't doubt that they've done it very well, but I wanted to set myself a deadline. (There are, after all, few more tragic sights than a balding, middle-aged actor, corsetting in his paunch and inelegantly bounding across the stage as an ageing juvenile!) So, at twenty-eight (I would be twenty-nine before the show opened) it was now or never.

And I suppose that playing Romeo had always represented to me the first rung on a ladder that every great classical actor had climbed before ascending to Hamlet, Iago, Macbeth, and so on, finally culminating in a great, definitive King Lear before toppling over and retiring to an old actors' home and telling ribald anecdotes into a great, plummy old age. Not that I am, for a second, categorizing myself as a 'great classical actor', or even aspiring to such a term, but the opportunity to follow a path through these famous parts in the wake of actors like Irving, Olivier, Gielgud and others seemed thrilling, and something that, ever since drama school, I'd dreamed of doing. This is the sort of egocentric thought-process that is not entirely helpful to an actor when it comes to actually approaching a role, and I'm not particularly proud to admit to it now, but I can't deny that it was a part (only a relatively small part, but an important one nevertheless) of what made me say yes to the RSC and to begin to find my own way through the sea of received notions of what the part meant to everyone who was so keen to give me their opinion."

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Thursday 5th September 2013

In July Matt Smith gave an interview to Buzzfeed while he was in the US to promote Doctor Who.

During the interview Matt was asked what it was like working with David Tennant. His reply was:

"He’s fantastic. He’s a fabulous bloke. He’s a fabulous Doctor, and our Doctors really get on. Actually, on and off screen, me and him get on really well. He’s a real pro and a good man. I have a lot of time for David."

Matt was then asked "Obviously, David went through a similar situation a few years ago and did leave the role. Did he offer any advice on making a graceful exit?"

Matt's reply was:

"Yeah. We talked about leaving and when is the right time to leave and how his experience of leaving was. He was very open and very generous with me. We discussed it together. I was very intrigued to hear his take on it. I don’t know, I think maybe just take each day as it comes with it and say, 'I’ve had a great time, and I’m not dead yet. I’ve got another month of shooting to come.'"



Wednesday, 4 September 2013

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Wednesday 4th September 2013

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is an interview that David gave earlier this year to Time Out.

As well as discussing Broadchurch, he talks about Hamlet, Postman Pat and Doctor Who.

The interview concludes with 'Perhaps his apparent self-assurance is what made him such a good Doctor Who. However eccentric his career choices might appear, he’s happy with them. If people enjoy his projects, even better. If they don’t, that’s okay too. David Tennant is unusual indeed: an actor as happy in his own skin as he is in anyone else’s.'
