Revealed by Digital Spy this week, it seems that Doctor Who guest actress Sinaed Keenan – who played spiky Vinvocci Addams in The End of Time – left her script in a pub!
It seems Ms Keenan was extremely impressed with the food of the pub in question – it was so good she left the script behind after a pub lunch.
“After I’d got the part and I’d read through the scripts, I was with my boyfriend at the time and we were having lunch in a pub, and I left them on the seat!
“He went, ‘Sinead – where are your scripts?!’ and so we went back and got them and luckily it was fine. It was all very confidential and hush-hush.
“It was one of those things that you couldn’t tell anyone. Besides, when you get your scripts, every one was watermarked with your name and the date in case it got out.”
In the event, the script was never seen by anyone else – which is a sad indictment of the state of some British pubs. Only the other day I went out for a bar meal and had to wait 10 minutes for a request for my table to be cleared to be fulfilled.
It’s a basic housekeeping task and had the bar staff in Sinaed Keenan’s preferred watering hole that day been more alert, that script would have been found – and the secrets of David Tennant’s finale leaked online or in the press!
