Cameron on Tennant

Having already reported  (and expressed opinion – see Tennant’s Tory Terror) on this story at the weekend, we feel compelled to continue coverage of Doctor Who star David Tennant’s feelings about the Labour government and the potential of a Conservative vistory when the 2010 election is held.

David Tennant spoke in Doctor Who Magazine about his belief in the Labour goverment and the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, while also revealing that he had distrust for Conservative leader David Cameron, MP.

Speaking to Radio 5 presenter Richard Bacon, Cameron conceded that he was out of touch with Doctor Who.

He told the Richard Bacon show: “I’m so old I’m sort of Jon Pertwee country, and a bit of Tom Baker. I watched the Christmas one but I haven’t refreshed myself all the way through so I’ve got a bit out of touch.”

Told that Doctor Who was not a fan of his, Mr Cameron replied: “Well that’s a pity but there we are.”

Cameron also speculated that he might attempt to change Tennant’s mind. Given that the leader of the opposition needs to win votes anywhere he can find them, we graciously wish him the very best of luck with that, but hope he doesn’t hold his breath (too long).
