With all of that about to come to an end, Tennant is under no illusion that things will change at some point.
Of course he’s got a couple of film appearances currently playing in theaters – World War II drama Glorious 39 in which he plays a key role and of course the UK’s second most popular film this week, St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold – not to mention the possibility of a long running US comedy drama in Rex Is Not Your Lawyer.
Yet David Tennant never comes across as smug or self absorbed; he points out, for instance, that hosting Comic Relief is unlikely to happen again:
“I don’t imagine I’ll be in the frame for things like that anymore,” he said. “I’m sure in two years’ time they’ll want Matt Smith to do Comic Relief. I suspect I’m just passing through, really.”
It’s our belief that it is this wonderful sense of realism and honesty that has helped David become such a big star – he has no heirs or graces,Â to pretentions… he’s a real, genuine guy who works very hard and really does deserve the greatest success post-Doctor Who.
