David Tennant will be appearing on tonight’s edition of The Graham Norton Show to talk about his behind-the-scenes exploits with fellow time traveller John Barrowman.
“We get very competitive about farting in the tardis…” David jokes, “…farting before performing is a kind of exorcism. John feels the same way … it’s our Glasgow heritage.”
But new co-star Freema Agyeman, who joins the Doctor as assistant Martha Jones, was less than impressed: “Freema really didn’t like it, which spurred us on.”
“Seriously though, it’s the best job in the world, I’m having a ball. It’s a big responsibility, people are very enthusiastic about it, and that can be a bit of an undertaking.”
And as for the rumoured Doctor nuptials, David says: “It’s very difficult to answer � he doesn’t not get married.”
