David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Saturday 29th October 2016
The interviewer asked David "Because people so love your performance in Doctor Who, is there anything that fans most often talk to you about, when they approach you about the series?"
David reply was: "No, not one specific thing. It's one of those things that people are very enthusiastic about, everywhere I go, throughout the world. It's got a reach unlike anything else. It's just one of those things that people feel very possessive of, and I understand that completely. It feels like it's yours, when you love something that much.
It's lovely to be associated with something that means that much to people. That's why you become an actor, to touch people, in whatever way, by telling stories. When people have been so affected by something that they dedicate huge parts of their life to it, it's lovely to be the focus of that.
You feel like you can't quite live up to it sometimes. You feel like you can't quite be enough, when people are rather overwhelmed to meet you. It's not because they're overwhelmed to meet me. They're overwhelmed to have a bit of interface with that thing that has meant so much to them.
It's actually quite humbling to be this personified presence of that, I suppose. But, I'm aware that that show is much bigger than any individual part in it.
It's a way of life, Doctor Who. It's a lifestyle for some people. And what a great thing to be enthusiastic about. What a treat thing to be a fan of it. It's a wonderful, inventive, creative, morally pure thing."
