David Tennant is a Really Popular Guy
Once more David Tennant is featured in a weekend publication, this time in The Scotsman as one of the 50 most eligible Scotsmen – did you know that the current star of Doctor Who was Scottish? I myself have been labouring under the misapprehension that he was Dutch…
Anyway, he did well beating tennis player James Murray… and then a list of no-marks, including the bloke who tackled the desperate Muslim extremists who tried to protest violently at Glasgow airport earlier this year.
But then bearing in mind it is a nation of beer swilling, deep-fried-Mars Bar eating, wife-beating English haters, it’s hardly a surprise that Tennant’s competition isn’t up to much. Jesting aside, though, commiserations, to Scotland on failing to qualify for Euro 2008 – at least you would have deserved to make it through.
So – the Tennant: he’s 36, lives in Cardiff and London, and
recently split from actress Sophia Myles, whom he met when she appeared with him in the Doctor Who episode The Girl in the Fireplace. They started dating in October 2005 but David is said to have ended the relationship, blaming the lack of time they were able to spend together following Sophia’s move to Los Angeles.
Apparently he’s also got some sort of bizarre scarecrow future:
If his Time Lord abilities are real, there’s always a chance he could metamorphose into the former Doctor Who/Worzel Gummidge actor Jon Pertwee.
Scottish humour, eh…
