The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a sweet story from 2008.
On Friday 17th
October there was a lovely story about David Tennant in an interview
with Toby Hadoke in a Cambridgeshire newspaper to advertise his one man
show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf which was playing in the area that
weekend. Toby Hadoke’s monologue is a touching but funny story about
how the programme Doctor Who has affected his life in a positive way
and about his relationship with his young son.
In parts during the play
David Tennant’s voice as The Doctor was played over the tannoy and Toby
explained in this article how David Tennant came to hear about his
“David Tennant’s such a nice man and he's such a good Doctor. I
did a charity comedy night at the Edinburgh
Festival to raise money for the hospice that cared for his mum - we
didn't tell him about it, but he got wind of it and he tracked me down,
which can't have been easy.
From something I'd said on a podcast he
worked out that I'd been in a play with someone he knew, so he phoned
her and asked for my number, and then one Wednesday morning I got a
phone call on my mobile and this voice said "My name's David Tennant",
and he just wanted to thank us for what we'd done.
I work with actors
all the time, but being phoned by the current Doctor Who - who frankly
had better things to be doing - was pretty amazing, and an incredibly
nice thing for him to do. But that's David - nobody has a bad word to
say about him.”
