David Tennant took part in a series of press interviews at the premiere of his new film, You, Me And Him in Glasgow on Sunday evening and, as is usual for interviews with David, talk turned to Doctor Who.
David of course played the Tenth Doctor and his former Broadchurch co star Jodie Whittaker has now taken over the controls of the TARDIS to become the Thirteenth incarnation of the Time Lord. With David's former Broadchurch boss Chris Chibnall at the helm, everyone wants to know his opinions on what Jodie will bring to the role.
Talking to Scotland's Heart News he said: "Because I know Jodie and I can imagine all the things that she might bring to it, I’m thrilled to see what that’s going to look like and what the stories are going to be. She’s such a great choice. I’m hoping the public will get to see sides of Jodie that she’s often kept hidden in the brilliantly sort of detailed character studies that she presents to the world. There’s a madness to Jodie, she’s one of…

Thanking the theatregoers who had voted for him David said:
"I'm so chuffed to be winning this for Don Juan in Soho. It was an amazing experience working with the amazing Patrick Marber, the peerless Adrian Scarborough, and a fantastic cast of brilliant, talented, enthusiastic, wonderful people."

David Tennant Wins WhatsOnStage Best Actor Award For Don Juan In Soho

Image
David Tennant was a winner again at the WhatsOnStage Theatre Awards tonight, picking up the prize for Best Actor In A Play for his performance in Don Juan In Soho. David was a previous winner for his perfomance in Richard II in 2013.

David played the title role in the revival of Patrick Marber's play, an update of the Moliere morality play Dom Juan.

MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS - David Tennant Shares His Beard Woes

Image
While we've all had plenty of sight of a bearded David Tennant - Broadchurch's Alec Hardy, for instance, or John in the new romcom You, Me And Him. However, later this year David will be seen on screen sporting some facial hair that will knock even John's sculpted hipster fuzz right out of the park. 

During yesterday's interview with Zoe Ball for her BBC Radio 2 show, David described his look for the historical drama Mary, Queen Of Scots in which he plays Protestant minister John Knox. The film stars Saorise Ronan and Margot Robbie and was filmed in locations across Scotland and England..

"He had a big old beard, he was very much defined by the beard," David joked of his character. "He had a sort of Dumbledore beard."

Keeping such a length of facial hair in place for filming was no mean feat, it seemed, causing grief for the hair and make up artists as well as David himself.

"[They had to] glue it and keep gluing it all day," he said. "Th…

Yesterday afternoon, David Tennant was interviewed by Zoe Ball for her show on BBC Radio 2. During his chat, David gave a brief update on his involvement with the greatly anticipated Amazon Prime series Good Omens.

The show is a six-part adaptation of the comic novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the latter of whom has written the screenplay and is acting as showrunner. The story is set at the brink of the Apocalypse and revolves around an unlikely partnership striving to prevent the end of the world. David, who has just wrapped shooting on the series in South Africa, plays Crowley, a demon, opposite Michael Sheen who plays an angel called Aziraphale. 

David explained how the good and evil divide between the two protagonists is not that clear cut.

"They're both a little yin and yang, to be honest," he stated. "That's why they get on so well. They've lived through the millennia with the human race, and I'm supposed to be there tempting…
