David Tennant Teases Doctor Who 50th Anniversary
The 50th anniversary of everyone’s favorite British time traveler, Doctor Who, is fast approaching. With this impending milestone, there has been much discussion about how the show will celebrate.
While on the road hyping his upcoming BBC miniseries Spies of Warsaw, David Tennant appeared on G4’s Attack of the Show. As you can imagine, there was much talk of Who, including a few mentions concerning the anniversary. Watching this video, you’ll notice that Tennant doesn’t actually say anything about plans, but it is a damn entertaining interview, especially if you’ve always wanted to see his face superimposed on a sweater, or listen to him thank David Hasselhoff for freedom.
Tennant goes so far as to say he’s neither confirming nor denying anything, but it does certainly appear that he’s been privy to some of the discussions had “in quiet rooms by men with long beards and great power.”
The man talks a mile a minute and bounces like someone spiked his coffee with more coffee. He’s all over the place in this clip—from the opening ceremony of the Olympics to technology—and maybe that’s all this is, bluster that makes him a fun guest on a talk show. In truth, we’re no closer to knowing if Tennant will be involved in the half-century celebration of Doctor Who or not, but his return definitely sounds like a possibility. Wouldn’t it be great to see him don the iconic pinstripe suit, which he assures you he has “in a very secure location.”
