Tennant Surprises Tao Sil
Tonight’s the Night hosted by John Barrowman revealed the end of the much heralded monster Doctor Who monster quest this week, as Tim Ingham of Lincolnshire invaded the TARDIS as Tao Sil, an alien limb trader.
An ingenius costume, Tao Sil was constructed from Tim’s fiance’s gel bra boosters, some blue and pink tights an most amaing of all a wine bottle cooler that was customised in the finest tradition of Mat Irvine into a weapon.
Ingham was further treated in playing out the Russell T Davies-scripted scene by an amusing interruption from David Tennant.
You can see the results on BBC iPlayer.
Meanwhile one other lucky guest was lucky enough to dance with the cast of River Dance – a surprise that involved one John Barrowman travelling to Middlesbrough to work the ruse on the fortunate young girl.
