I've mentioned before that I adore David Tennant. My first experience watching him was in the film "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" when he played Death Eater Barty Crouch, Jr. Last year, I was surfing on a lazy Saturday afternoon and discovered that BBC had brought back Doctor Who. I was intrigued.
I remember watching Doctor Who in the 70s as a kid on Friday and Saturday nights -- my parents would play cards with their friends and all of us kids would crowd around the tv to watch Monty Python's Flying Circus, Benny Hill, and if we could stay up late enough, the Doctor. Apparently, the Doctor was resurrected in 2004-2005 with Chris Eccleston (he was the villain in Gone in Sixty Seconds opposite Nicholas Cage). He only did one season, and the yummy David Tennant took his place and became the 10th Doctor since the series began in 1964. I'm totally addicted now! I HAVE to have my "Doctor fix" EVERY Saturday, without fail or my day is in ruin! *LOL*
David will only be in this role till 2010 when they replace him with Matt Smith. Not too sure anyone can replace David, though - he fit the role so nicely. In his bio, it's noted that he was saying at the age of 3 he wanted to be the Doctor one day. How prophetic, huh? This season, his companion is Donna Noble, played by Catherine Tate & while I really do prefer Rose (Billie Piper), Donna is a good fit for the feisty, quick-witted, enthusiastic Doctor.
I was flipping through fan videos on You Tube earlier today and ran across a skit that they performed together for Comic Relief -- it was an absolute riot & I wanted to share it with you. Be sure to listen closely, as Catherine when she gets warmed up is a verbal force to be reckoned with! *LOL* Only David, IMHO, could play off her so beautifully - their timing is impeccable! Enjoy!
