Tennant: ‘I Wouldn’t Say I Miss It’

Gosh darn that David Tennant!  It just seems that no one in the press can get him to blub: “I want my TARDIS back!”

While appearing on 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, she’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; 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 continues Sunday 17th October (catch the first episode on BBC iPlayer)

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
