I only started watching Dr Who some 6 months ago and at the time, it was David tennant who was the Dr.
I recognised him from Broadchurch, a series I really looked forward to watching each week, but grew to just adore him in Dr Who.
I have his pictures all around (no, I dont have a real life partner!!!) and think he is both stunning as an actor, and has the most stunning face!
DIVINE.....and I have not thought this way about anyone in a long time!
People do and can have a crush on certain actors.
I have when younger, and even now find one or two actors who are quite appealing.
This actor for me is sadly not one of them...and we have to remember that it is a very personal thing, to like someone who crosses all the boxes for you..
For me I have two.
Jim Caviezel & Johnny Depp.
What one may see in someone, is not always the case for another....
I had enjoyed watching David Tennant in several performances prior to his stand out as Doctor Who. He can be very straight and serious as well as hilariously absent-minded and witty!!Even his voice-overs for animated characters are fabulously individual.
He played Barty Crouch Jr in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to an absolute TEE!!! Who would ever have known that from age 16 he was playing mainly Shakespearean roles including Romeo?! I think he would have been a very yummy Romeo!! The first thing I saw him in which really made a huge impact was the dark musical comedy/drama called Blackpool.It was made in 2004,but not shown here in Oz till 2005. This really highlighted his amazing talents and so when I saw him in the role of The Doctor,I didn't miss a single episode! As he has been acting since childhood, it is little wonder he is so very accomplished in so many varied aspects of the craft!! He definitely gets my vote in the talent and popularity stakes!!
I've seen David Tennant in Dr Who, Broadchurch and just last night the film "What we did on our holiday". Also other films and each time a very different character - he plays them well and anyway, he is easy to watch! Yup the accent too is a plus
David Tennant is an amazingly talented actor who has rightly won at least two Best Actor awards in one category or another every year for the last 10 years. He can do everything from Shakespeare to RomCom with such an amazing ability to bring the story to life that one tends to forget the artistry required. He is, very simply, amazing, not to mention brilliant. If you don't know who he is - you have a wonderful treat in store as you find out.
I think he is a brilliant actor. I have seen him in so many roles over the years, the diversity of which is amazing. I think he will go on to become a real character actor in his later years. Of course, it helps that he is Scottish (think Sean Connery)!
