David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Wednesday 24th 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 David Tennant A Year In The Spotlight and is by Sue Williams.

It is available from Amazon from this link for £12 or the Kindle version is available from this link for £1.46. It is also sold from this website with both a physical version and a PDF version.

The book was published in November 2009 and it is only available in paperback or electronic form. All proceeds from this book go to the cancer charity AICR which David Tennant supports.

The book is 359 pages in length plus there are 34 pages of reviews of Hamlet and Love's Labour's Lost at the back. It is full of photos (both colour and black and white) including a couple of exclusive pictures.

There are 7 reviews of the book on Amazon who gave it an average of 4.5 out of five stars.

It is the most detailed book about David Tennant but it is not exactly a biography as it only looks at his career during 2008 and the beginning of 2009 (when he finished playing Hamlet). It is not at all intrusive and only deals with his private life where it was published in the press (and then often in a dismissive manner). It also covers the reaction of fans online. As it is a self-published book there are some typos in it.

Some of the black and white photos are a little dark but there are lots of colour pages throughout the book, for example each episode of Doctor Who has a separate page of photos. It can be a little dry but for 2008 it is the most informative book about David Tennant. A version about David Tennant in 2009 and 2010 is due to be published in January 2011.

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