David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Wednesday 29th January 2014

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a video interview of David Tennant from 2005 when he attended the Glastonbury Festival.

It was not too long after he had been announced as playing the Tenth Doctor and was before he had started filming so he could wander around without causing the stir that he does nowadays.

One funny part is where he catches a glimpse of himself in one of the monitors and realises quite how "festival" he looks!

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Monday 27th January 2014

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is probably David Tennant's worst ever interview!

Fans were asked to email questions for David to be asked during an interview which was being conducted on behalf of MSN a couple of years ago. Unfortunately the interviewer just read the questions and didn't really interact with David in any way.

However David is his usual charming self and expands on the questions - he must be an interviewer's dream guest!

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 24th January 2014



The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a lovely quote about David from Mariah Gale. It appeared on BirminghamPost.net on 30th July 2010.

Mariah played Ophelia in Hamlet with David Tennant plus she was the Princess Of France in Love's Labour's Lost and was currently starring as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet.

The relevant part of the article is:
"Although she had won critical acclaim for earlier roles, it was the role of Hamlet’s lover that catapulted her into the media spotlight in 2008. The lead was taken by David Tennant, fresh from Doctor Who super-stardom.

Mariah knew Tennant had already been cast and admits to being on edge when she first met the former Time Lord.

“It was scary, but it becomes not scary very quickly because you start working together intensely. I have so much respect for him as an actor. He was very lovely to me and very respectful. It’s nice when you appreciate what you can each bring to the show. It was really sad when we finished. The whole cast got on really well.”

The cast went to a Covent Garden restaurant for a late dinner on the last night.

“David was there with his girlfriend. They kind of snuck off at the end of the night and everyone was like ‘I didn’t get to say goodbye to David.’

And then the waitress came over and we asked for the bill and she said, ‘No, it’s been paid.’ 

He’d snuck off because he’d paid for everyone. It was lovely.”"

David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 17th January 2014

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 show. 

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.
