Doctors 10 & 11 Meet at Press Night!

Matt Smith and David Tennant: Face to Face at Last!

Our Boys is a new stage play starring Arthur Darvill and Laurence Fox – so where else would you expect to find Matt Smith and David Tennant?

Fox is, of course, the husband of Billie Piper (Rose Tyler, of course), and the resulting press photographs of the Doctor Who stars and erstwhile companion paint a picture of an entire generation of British showbiz stars at last night’s launch at the Duchess Theatre in London.

(Curiously, Arthur Darvill appears in very few of the snaps published in the press. Sorry Arthur, they’ve forgotten you already…)

Smith and Tennant paired up for a few fun photos, most of which you can see here.

Of course, the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors might well be echoing these poses in a few months time, so let’s just imagine them in costume for a few moments (not difficult looking at Tennant’s jacket) and look forward to seeing them on screen together – with or without Billie Piper.

    Was it completely necessary to add the dig at Arthur Darville there?

    • Dig? It was the Daily Mail who insulted Darvill by not mentioning him at all. The sentence to which you presumably refer to is a commentary on that.

        Oh, not really. As you were.

  2. avatar Paddy says:

    Don’t you think he looks tired?

    (Sorry, couldn’t resist).

    These photos give me chills. I always get that way when I see shots of the Doctors together. The Collectormania Q&A was another great captured moment. And seeing some shots of Paul and Tom at an event held in New Zealand. It’s nice to see that they appear to get on well. And Billie looks fantastic!

    Bojay, I personally think Billie could use a couple cheeseburgers.

    And in my opinion, the K article could have put up the two docs pic, then the pic of Arthur, to right the wrongs of those articles.

    Just my opinion of course.

    But yeah, it’s great to see them together, strange, but great. I can’t believe the newspaper article didn’t mention Georgia Moffett in the last picture. I mean really,,,, A doctor, A doctor, A companion, A companion, A doctor’s daughter (who happens to be a doctor’s daughter), and an anomaly jumping time traveler who some of us hope may pilot the tardis someday,,,, what an evening indeed.

    You’re right, she does look a bit on the perhaps too thin side. I hadn’t taken a look at the Daily Mail link, just the one. I hope she isn’t unwell.

  6. avatar Drew says:

    Billie is so skinny she looks terrible. Sad. Love seeing 10 and 11 together! Now if it would just happen on a Doctor Who set!

  7. avatar daniel says:

    i will defend Billie here…She has two young kids, like myself, and her husband is out working every night.

    Youd look XXXX and all…
