Tennant Reveals Doctor Who ISN’T his Favourite Show!
David Tennant has revealed he was struck by how ‘high maintenance’ politicians were while researching his upcoming role in Paula Milne’s long-awaited follow up to The Politician’s Wife, The Politician’s Husband.
In the BBC Two drama, the Tenth Doctor stars as an MP embroiled in a both a personal and political power struggle between him and his wife, played by Breaking the Waves actress, the superb Emily Watson.
Drawing comparisons between both politicians and actors, Tennant found many parallels between an opening night and a good debate in the House of Commons:
The high you get when you deliver something well in the House is like having a fantastic first night on stage and getting all the best reviews. It gives you that kind of a hit.
Perhaps even more shocking than the vanity of our elected leaders is David’s confession that Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing is his favourite show!
Yes – it seems that David has jumped ship!
The Politician’s Husband starts this Thursday at 9pm on BBC Two.
