Tennant Suspects “Phone was hacked”
Speaking to the Daily Record the notoriously private former Doctor shared some of his doubts about just how details of his private life ended up being retold in ink:
“I’m not suggesting my phone was hacked, although it would make sense of certain moments when I was surprised about how some information became public.”
Tennant has gone to great lengths to guard his privacy; there was no glossy magazine spread when he married Georgia Moffett, and there was very little publicity when his daughter Olive was born last March.
Although there is complicity in agreeing to a magazine spread or announcing that you’ve had a recent addition, these allegations, if true, aren’t something that David will pursue either through the courts or the Leveson Inquiry:
“It’s difficult to do anything about inaccuracy or intrusion, even if you think you have a good case. It becomes very expensive very quickly.”
Suspicions were first raised when Christopher Eccleston – who is hardly likely to be caught falling out of a hipster club at stupid o’clock – stated that he believed he was a victim of News International’s reprehensible actions and was planning to sue.
Following that logic, it’s not difficult to imagine that the next actor to take on the mantle of the Doctor would be victim to the same alleged treatment.
