Dull News

New Doctor Who David Tennant has spoken to the Radio Times, reports The Mirror – and confessed that he’s a bit of a dullard!

According to the report in today’s Mirror, Tennant has:

“…no hobbies or pursuits. I live in north London and drive a Skoda. I’m afraid that’s as interesting as it gets.”

It would seem also that the new Doctor is a little bit vain, following in the footsteps of at least one of his predecessors:

“I’ve been known to wear moisturiser, which may mean I’ll be stopped on the Paisley boundary next time I go home.”

He is also revealed to have strong feelings about a certain ex-Prime Minister:

When I started working in theatre in England, I would meet people and they would say, ‘Oh, I voted for Margaret Thatcher’. The first time I heard someone saying that, I honestly thought they were joking.

“I’d be thinking, ‘I have never met anyone from your world. What’s it like? Do you roast children over open fires?’ I still find it impossible to believe that anyone in the arts votes Conservative.”

icwales.co.uk report that the BBC National Orchestra of Wales – NOW – have recorded the soundtrack to the new series of Doctor Who!

The sessions took place at the BBC studios in Cardiff during November, and reports icwales:

…conducted by Ben Foster, the sessions were produced by the programme’s composer Murray Gold, who also arranged the new version of the Doctor Who soundtrack.

‘The BBC National Orchestra of Wales is the best orchestra I’ve recorded with,’ said Gold.

Finally, Doctor Who is again nominated for awards! This time it is the BBC 2005 Drama Awards, reports the Official site:

With categories including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Villain and Most Desirable Star we’re hopeful that Doctor Who might be up for a couple of awards.

Voting closes on Friday 6th January 2006, with results revealed on Monday 16th January 2006.

Most Desirable Star? Billie Piper?

The campaign starts HERE!
