He might be busy starring in Hollywood horror franchise reboots and Doctor Who DVD extras, but former Doctor Who star David Tennant still loves the show enough to drop everything when the 50th anniversary comes around…
The man we call Ten was chatting to Total Film recently and revealed that although he’s ready to make a return to Doctor Who for any upcoming anniversaries, he hasn’t yet been asked. Not officially, anyway.
“People keep telling me that they’ve read online that I’m coming back – but believe me, if that happens I’ll be the first to tell everyone. I’ll be shouting about it very loudly.”
Despite what some fans might think about the way he’s distanced himself from the show in the last couple of years, David remains proud of his years in the TARDIS.
“I’m very proud of the show and I’m fully aware it casts a long shadow professionally, but I’m quite happy about that. It’s a shadow wearing a very cool, long coat.”
Incidentally, new sitcom This is Jinsy, whose pilot debuted on BBC Three but has a full series heading to Sky Atlantic later in the year features David Tennant as “a camp wedding organiser” in “gold trousers and a hairpiece.”
“He’s very camp and he looks extraordinary. We didn’t realise how skinny David Tennant’s legs were but we got him some gold trousers and the most extraordinary hairpiece you’ve ever seen – you won’t recognise him, it’s just unbelievable.”
Other Whovian guest stars in the series will include Catherine Tate (Donna Noble) and Simon Callow (Charles Dickens).
