David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 26th November 2010

As David Tennant is reading the Book At Bedtime each night this week (10.45pm on BBC Radio 4) the David Tennant Treat 4 Today each day this week is looking at David Tennant and / or Tenth Doctor books.

The book today is called Rex Is Not Your TV Show and is by M.L. Zambrana.

The book is self-published and is only available on Kindle (or similar). It was published in June 2010 and is available at this link for £3.63.

The actual narrative is about 80 pages in length plus there is an intro and then credits at the end.

The actual narrative took me less than half an hour to read but it must be difficult to write a book about a TV show that you've never seen and didn't make it to air (it was produced before the clip was posted online).

The intro deals with why it's not the book the author wanted to write and then there are pages about how the show happened (see the sample pages below). Most of the part about the filming and subsequent mentions of the programme which makes up the remainder of the book were all reported on David Tennant websites at the time.

I think the only thing I leaned by reading it was who all the crew members were but the names won't mean much to the average fan.

Below are scans of the first few pages of the book. Click on each one for a larger version.
