Make that Judgement

David Tennant’s on-screen departure draws eye-wettingly nearer, and a really massive feature in the Observer (reproduced on the Guardian website) helpfully reminds the reader that after The End of Time, Part One there is only The End of Time, Part Two.

There is a lot to recommend the article – so many quotes and interest opinions both from Tennant and the people he has worked with, including Billie Piper, Patrick Stewart and David Morrissey. Hop on over there and spend a few minutes reading it – but if you can’t then how about this on why David Tennant is leaving at the right time.

“David is very sad to leave,” says his friend, the actress Arabella Weir. “But when do you leave the party? When everybody has stopped asking you to dance and is going: ‘Look at that sad old cow, he’s still here’? You don’t know, is the short answer. You just have to make that judgement.”

Meanwhile in the Telegraph, a short video feature accompanies some words. The video clip is terribly slow so don’t waste too much time on that – although David Tennant’s happy to recall the days when he used to spend time sifting through the Christmas TV listings magazines.

“Christmas television was a big deal when I was young. It was the only time of the year that my mum would buy the Radio Times and the TV Times, and I used to love poring over them – I think that’s quite a common British experience.”

I still haven’t got past last Sunday in my Christmas Radio Times…
