Today’s Independent features an indepth interview with new Doctor David Tennant.
Speaking to Sarah Shannon David discusses his forthcoming role as Brendan Block in ITV’s ‘Secret Smile’ as well as his work on Doctor Who.
Speaking of the recording of his scene for ‘The Parting of The Ways’ he says “There was hardly anyone there, and yet you’re sensing the importance of the moment. My first line was, ‘Hello! New teeth, that’s weird.’ It was very odd, saying my first line as the Doctor.”
David also discusses the fame implications of taking on such a high profile role as The Doctor. “I never ticked the box saying, ‘Want people to come up to me’. But as long as people aren’t unpleasant or violent or rude, then I don’t mind. I think you look very poor if you start complaining when you’re so lucky to be doing this job.”
