THROWBACK THURSDAY: David Tennant - The Great Leveller Interview - 2005

Image
Today's Throwback Thursday post is an interview with David Tennant from The Herald back in 2005.

It's 1975 in Paisley. A little boy is playing in his garden, and he's excited because his granny has knitted him a really, really long scarf that makes him look just like Doctor Who. He wants to be the Doctor when he grows up. In fact, he tells everyone, he will be the Doctor when he grows up. It's just a little boy's dream. Harmless, really.
Fast-forward to 2005 in Cardiff. A grown-up man is excited because he has just seen the new Cybermen for the first time. He is playing Doctor Who in the new series, and is telling everyone it's the most thrilling thing that has happened to him ever, ever. It was all a little boy's dream. A dream that came true.
Even David Tennant can't believe the story sometimes: the boyhood fantasy being lived out 30 years later. When he talks about his new job, he rabbit-drums his feet on the floor and rubs his hands through his hai…

Terror In The South Seas: The Ebb Tide
BBC Radio 4
Sunday 11th December, 3.00pm GMT
Three destitute men steal a schooner. They drink the cargo of champagne and try to steal a treasure trove of pearls from a local slave-owning trader. Starring Stanley Townsend and Rupert Evans with narration by David Tennant.

At the height of his powers, Stevenson tackled the most pressing theme on the islands - the vicious effects of colonialism including slavery, racism, sexual exploitation and the conflict between traditional and modern values. The subjects are as vivid today as in 1894 and these compelling and violent stories feature some of the most driven, dangerous and obsessive…

Penguins: Spy In The Huddle - Narrated By David Tennant - Comes To Netflix Today

Image
The David Tennant narrated nature series, Penguins: Spy In The Huddle will be available to watch on Netflix in the USA from Wednesday 23rd November 2016.

The three-part series, featuring a voice over from David, deploys 50 spycams to record many first-time images of penguin behavior

The life of a penguin is not an easy one, but recording the challenges faced by nature's most devoted parents and their offspring in remote parts of the world was nearly as hard, and only possible due to the placement of spycams in their midst. For nearly a year, filmmakers deployed 50 animatronic cameras disguised as realistic life-size penguins, eggs and rocks to infiltrate the colonies of three very different species: emperor penguins in Antarctica, rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands, and Humboldt penguins in Peru's Atacama Desert. The resulting footage shows what it is really like to be a penguin from a whole new perspective. Take a front row seat as they journey to their breeding gro…

BROADCHURCH: Arthur Darvill Predicts Brilliant Final Series

Image
Arthur Darvill, who plays the Reverend Paul Coates in the award-winning ITV drama series Broadchurch, has predicted that the series will return next year in top form. Actor and musician Arthur was talking ahead of the new stage production of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr. Fox, for which he has composed the music, which opens in Southampton next week.

"This series, I think, is just going to be brilliant," he told Digital Spyof Broadchurch. "I can't tell you too much about it, but the subject matter of it is really heavy."
Broadchurch returns after a two year break for its third and final series early in 2017. After the audience-gripping phenomenon that was series 1, the second series seemed to disappoint some fans and certain sections of the press, with complaints that the focus on the trial of Danny's killer distracted from the impact of the new murder mystery. 
Arthur, who was given time out from his US show DC's Legends Of Tomorrow especially to film Bro…
