Fake Tennant Memorabilia

Former Doctor Who David TennantThe David Tennant news website has reported that several fake items that are meant to have been signed or owned by the star have been appearing on auction website Ebay for sale. Tennantnews commented:

“David has checked them out and we can confirm that they are nothing to do with him.”

The website details the various ways that you can pick up official Tennant merchandise without the risk of it being fake. You can find out the details at tennantnews.blogspot.com.

And if you’re thinking of trying to get hold of some “cheaper” merchandise, spare a thought for David who, according to The Sun, has had his earnings plummet from 2.5 million to 1.5 million in the first nine months of leaving Doctor Who.

Since this information comes from the infamous red top paper, take it with a pinch of salt.

    I wish I could say I was only making 1.5 million…

  2. Paul says:

    Oh, poor David Tennant and his plummeting earnings. My heart pumps custard for him.


  3. I wouldn’t have thought he’s *that* bothered. He will have been well aware of the change, IMO, and its probably fair to say he’s enjoying not being in the papers daily…

    Seems like a good trade-off to me.

  4. Paul says:

    A lot of actors crave attention, so not being in the papers daily is probably the thing he misses the most. Never mind, Tennant’s loss is Matt Smith’s gain, whose income has probably increased by 1.5 million.

    you’re so right, Paul. i guess that’s why Tennant just keeps showing up at every red carpet event, falling drunk out of paparazzi-frequented nightclubs and restaurants, dating Britney Spears, appearing on all those damn reality shows since he left Who…oh, guess i must have missed all that.
    if you really think that’s what Tennant misses most, than you’ve obviously never read/heard anything he’s ever said.

    Thank you.

    “i guess that’s why Tennant just keeps showing up at every red carpet event, falling drunk out of paparazzi-frequented nightclubs and restaurants, dating Britney Spears, appearing on all those damn reality shows since he left Who…oh, guess i must have missed all that.”

    We all did. The press just aren’t interested in him anymore, also he’s not getting the gigs. Since heleft Doctor Who Tennant’s been virtually invisible.

    “if you really think that’s what Tennant misses most, than you’ve obviously never read/heard anything he’s ever said.”

    Not recently no, because the press are ignoring him. Listen nel, just because Tennant doesn’t overact as much in real life as he does on television, doesn’t mean he doesn’t like to be seen. Why else would he take up acting? He’s clearly not doing it for the art.

    If all he wanted was money and (over)exposure then he wouldn’t have left the series in the first place. Of course the Sun can’t understand that as they equate everyone in the public eye with the likes of Jordan.

    “amber

    If all he wanted was money and (over)exposure then he wouldn’t have left the series in the first place.”

    No one wants “over exposure,” but that’s certainly what Tennant got last Christmas, and that’s probably why he didn’t get a lot of work afterwards. As for the reasons Tennant left Doctor Who, there could be many.

    For example, He may have become a bit jittery when Doctor Who was cut to four specials in 2009, and RTD’s contract was not renewed. Maybe he thought the writing was on the wall and it was best to quit while he was ahead.

    As for the idea that Tennant is not interested in fame and money, well, that just daft. If Tennant didn’t desire these things, why did he sign up for a popularist programme like Doctor Who in the first place?
