Image
Thanks to Entertainment One we are excited to be able to bring you this hilarious clip of David Tennant in action as Mr. Peterson in the brilliant new film Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger!






About the film:

An anxious teacher starts a new job at an under-achieving school and quickly finds himself struggling to cope with a wild classroom assistant, a group of under-performing kids and his own very pregnant wife. He soon becomes embroiled in a madcap plan to enter a National ‘Song for Christmas’ Competition and finds himself embarking on a disastrous road trip in search of the competition venue – the ‘Christmas Castle’. Lost in the wilderness with a class of small children, a baby and a donkey, he has to stand up, face his fears and try to lead them not only to safety, but victory. Nativity 2 is part action adventure, part musical and has all the comedy, warmth and heart that audiences love. Nativity! 2 Danger In The Manger is released in cinemas across the UK on 23rd November 2012.

Matt Smith Says His First Doctor Was David Tennant

Image
Doctor Who actor Matt Smith recently took part in an interview with Den Of Geek to promote the DVD release of Series 7 Part 1 of Doctor Who, during which he spoke briefly about David Tennant being the first Doctor that he watched.
He says:

You mention watching past multi-Doctor episodes; have you pretty well immersed yourself in the show’s history now?
Yeah! As soon as I got the job, I went through tonnes and tonnes - I got them to send me pretty much every episode that I could get my hands on. So I went through Troughton, Pertwee, Baker, a bit of Hartnell... So I’ve dipped in. I hate to say, I’ve never watched really any Colin Baker episodes.
My first Doctor, and I told him this, was David [Tennant]. I did it the wrong way round! I watched all of David’s stuff and all of Chris’s stuff, and then I went backwards... I was always aware of Doctor Who, but I didn’t grow up with it.

You can read the full interview with Matt over on Den Of Geek here.

Not The Next Doctor

Image
David Morrisey has revealed to the press that he was asked to pretend he was set to replace David Tennant as the Doctor in Doctor Who. The Sun reports:
David Morrisey was lined up to star in the BBC show’s 2008 Christmas special at the same time the programme’s then-star David Tennant announced he intended to quit. Show boss Russell T Davies asked David if they could pretend he was set to replace Tennant as the Time Lord since the special was titled The Next Doctor. David was even banned from telling his family the truth – leaving his children wondering whether they would be forced to relocate to Wales, where the show is filmed. The role was eventually given to Matt Smith. David said: “It was nine months of my life that was hell. “Russell said to me, ‘You can’t tell anyone’. I said, ‘OK, but I can tell my kids?’ and he went, ‘No! They could tell someone in the playground’. So for nine months, my kids were like, ‘Are we moving to Cardiff?’”
