Tennant: ‘I Wouldn’t Say I Miss It’
While appearing onÂ Paul O’ Grady Live the former Doctor told the titular host that he has no regrets about leaving the show when and how he did:
I wouldn’t say I miss it.
I mean I had a brilliant, brilliant time. It’s the most fun you can ever have and call it work, but I had a really good go so I think it was probably time to move on and now I like being able to tune in and watch it back and not know what’s happening next.
Lord David of Tennant also tossed garlands of praise in former co-star Billie Piper’s way after hearing she had described him as a far better kisser than current Time Lord Matt Smith (but lets face it they both pale in example to the sultan of love, Jon Pertwee):
Well, she’s just brilliant, sheâ€™s just great. I shan’t disabuse you of that fact [that I'm a better kisser]. Not that I’ve ever kissed Matt Smith, I’d like to point that out now. And not that I wouldn’t like to.
Which would clearly be the biggest Doctor love-fest since Colin Baker caught sight of himself in a mirror.
Tennant also spoke of one of his (and many a Who fans) favourite moments with Dame Billie Piper; the heart rendering climax of series two;Â Doomsday:
“It was the end of my first year and Billie had been such a huge part of that. It was a brilliantly sad scene and it was very sad to play.”
Tennant can currently be seen in Single Father which continuesÂ SundayÂ 17th October (catch the first episode on BBC iPlayer)
