Digital Spy have reported how David Tennant performed his own “running around a corner” stunts for Planet of the Ood.

The heavily demanding role of running around corners and kicking bins over saw our favourite actor reject plans to bring in a stuntman for the scenes in which the Doctor escapes from a giant mechanical claw.

However the big jessie wore knee and elbow protectors underneath his clothes to avoid injury as dived over containers.

“I wasn’t doubled for any of it because it was throwing yourself around, which I enjoy,” Tennant revealed.

He also revealed that he fancies the Ood… for supper:

David added: “The Ood heads are so squeezable, you just want to bite them.”
