David Tennant Bumps into Sylvester McCoy
We’ve all got our eye on Doctor Who this year. The fiftieth anniversary special due to be screened on BBC One on November 23rd 2013 is causing speculation regarding the show to reach what can only be an all-time high.
The questions on everyone’s lips is ‘will we see a multi-Doctor story?’, the question after that is ‘which Doctors will we see?’ and the third question is probably ‘will it be like Dimensions in Time? (Please, God, no!!!! – Ed)’
For those of you that cannot wait for the multi-Doctor celebrations from the BBC or from Big Finish Productions, perhaps we can mellow your mood with a multi-Doctor picture from the BBC Audio Awards.
The awards, which took place on Sunday, featured David Tennant as the host for the second year running as he handed out recognition for some of the finest talent in the audio industry. Of the event, Tennant said:
‘The quality of our radio drama is one of the things that makes me proud to be British. Acting on the radio is challenging, inspiring, delicate, and always a privilege.
‘Radio drama is often overlooked and undervalued next to its showier younger siblings on the television and in the cinema, and yet it is on the wireless that so many important and brilliant talents have been discovered and nurtured.’
Winners at the awards included David Troughton (The Curse of Peladon, Midnight) who was named Best Supporting Actor in BBC Radio 3′s Singles and Doublets (where he portrayed the Earl of Leicester) and sonic wizard Murray Gold whose Kafka the Musical, won the Tinniswood Radio Drama Award 2012.
Along for the ride, but not as a host, was former Doctor Sylvester McCoy and the two former Time Lords posed very willingly for some pictures.
