David Tennant and Catherine Tate reprised their roles as Jonathan Ross’ radio replacement this weekend as they took to the airwaves in a pre-recorded broadcast on Saturday morning.
This was the the third time the former Doctor Who stars had subbed for Ross – the controversial presenter was on holiday in advance of him departing the BBC later this year.
With guests Anthony Head (Mr Finch in School Reunion) and Ricky Gervais, Tennant and Tate were their usual irrepressible selves, mixing up the usual format of Jonathan Ross’ show with a rather bonkers new phone in game. Any errors were clearly left on the cutting room floor as it were – while there were the usual Catherine Tate faux pas, there was nothing to cause any lasting embarrassment, vindication of the decision to pre-record.
UK listeners can tune in to the broadcast for 6 more days via BBC iPlayer.
