David Tennant

He was a great Doctor Who. I understand he had back surgery, fucking ouch. Anyone know what happened to his pilot, the one where he plays a lawyer who is so burnt out he basically advises all his clients to represent themselves? That sounded like a fun premise to me. Was it picked up, tabled, shelved, hung on the wall in a frame or what?

by Anonymousreply 8101/06/2013

Wasn't there a thread recently where people said the show had been canceled?

by Anonymousreply 104/18/2010

Sorry, did not search first. Too bad. He's such a cutie.

by Anonymousreply 204/18/2010

I wouldn't call him cute.

He's not ugly, but he's not cute either. Just like a lot of British guys.

That's the nicest thing anyone's said about me all day.

It's the sideburns, isn't is?

by Anonymousreply 404/18/2010

The British are just kind of bland - they lack the raw, passionate, fiery looks that those of other nations possess.

by Anonymousreply 504/18/2010

I disagree. British men, with the exception of nearly all their celebrities, are hot chowder. Also usually hung, uncut, and the little bit of disdain that they politely try to hide about the fact that you're American and they secretly hate you is also a cozy bit of time by the reality fireplace.

by Anonymousreply 604/18/2010

Another thing about British men - they aren't "pretty." And that's a compliment. The hot men look like men.

"British men, with the exception of nearly all their celebrities, are hot chowder."

Aren't their celebrities usually more attractive than the average person in the population?

by Anonymousreply 804/18/2010

Good observation, R8. You must be a PI or some sort of detective!

by Anonymousreply 904/18/2010

R9, I was asking that question because it sounded like the other poster was saying that their celebrities are LESS attractive then the population at large.

I see.

Well, sideburns are attractive.

David Tennant's pilot, Rex is Not Your Lawyer got put on hold. There is a chance it could get picked up in the fall, but I wouldn't bet on it. Bummer because not only is David hot but the show actually sounded cool.

Oh, and below is one of my fav sites! I have a total thing for guys with glasses!

by Anonymousreply 1204/19/2010

David Tennant is uncut, has a nice bush, is slender and is tall.

Other than that, he doesn't have much going for him.

by Anonymousreply 1304/19/2010

I think he's adorable. I just watched a DVD extra from 2009 San Diego comicon where he kisses John Barrowman, I think I could have watched that again and again and again....hotness.

(I found it as a torrent if you've never seen, filename is something like Doctor Who Comic Con International.

by Anonymousreply 1404/19/2010

OMG! I love that clip R14

You can also find it on youtube

by Anonymousreply 1504/20/2010

I miss Tennant on Who. The least RTD could've done before they wrapped it up was have Tennant and Simm fuck, lol.

John Simm is also some "hot chowder."

Honestly who care? Brits have hottest accents in the world.

I ADORE a man with a British accent. If he's ugly, we can always just have sex in the dark, as long as he talks dirty! lol

by Anonymousreply 1704/20/2010

John Simm is only hot as the master. It's gotta be a power thing, I don't think he's at all attractive on his own TV show, but I'd fuck him senseless on Dr Who.

Or watch him and Tennant go at it. That'd be fun too.

by Anonymousreply 1804/20/2010

John Simm was terrible as The Master.

I wish Sir Derek Jacobi had been kept in that role, rather than regenerating him.

by Anonymousreply 1904/20/2010

Here is a GREAT clip of him on The Friday Night Project. If you have time watch the entire episode... its awesome.

(I was actually looking for the part where they asked him if he likes to be called 'doctor' in bed and he said he prefers 'master')

I couldn't find that one, but this is a close second. lol

by Anonymousreply 2004/20/2010

Me again, last post, promise.

That Friday Night Project clip made me think of this one, which I love too!

Great links everyone! Love the glasses link and the DW spoof.

Hamlet premiers in the US next Weds (4/28)!

And as if David doing Shakespeare isn't enough, it also stars Patrick Stewart *swoon* (Ok, so he's old but he's still hot - plus I have a think for accents!)

by Anonymousreply 2504/21/2010

Rex is still under consideration for a fall pick up. They have focus groups running for it this week and next week, and they would not be bothering to do that if it wasn't. The announcement will be made May 17

David is currently filming a new BBC1 drama series playing a man with three children coping with the death of his wife.

by Anonymousreply 2604/22/2010

Bigger version of R22's pic.

by Anonymousreply 2704/22/2010

Thanks R25 I knew Hamlet was coming sometime soon but had forgotten about it. David Tennant and Patrick Stewart doing Shakespeare! Totally doesn't get any better then that!

Oh and R26, awesome to hear that about Rex! :)

by Anonymousreply 2804/22/2010

He is definitely uncut, R27.

by Anonymousreply 2904/22/2010

I would rather he kept working in the UK. He'd have better luck making British tv than American tv. Rex screams the type of program that will be cancelled on broadcast tv within the first few episodes; it might have a higher chance of surviving on a cable network like USA with its "characters welcome" theme but otherwise I wouldn't have high hopes for something that sounds as quirky as this show having a long run.

by Anonymousreply 3004/22/2010

That's SIR Patrick Stewart, to you common rabble.

by Anonymousreply 3104/22/2010

R30 I think Rex sounds kinda Ally McBeal-ish. Some people would say thats a bad thing, but the show was on for a number of years.

Aside from David, Rex has a great supporting cast... I love Jeffrey Tambor and Jane Curtin.

by Anonymousreply 3204/23/2010

Do you think John Barrowman ever got to see that cock?

by Anonymousreply 3304/23/2010

is that the xtra xtra long foreskin? ugh!

by Anonymousreply 3404/23/2010

It would be delightful to suck on and play with

by Anonymousreply 3504/23/2010

R33, no. But if any of the rumors are true about Barrowman pulling oit out a lot, then David may have seen his.

by Anonymousreply 3604/23/2010

It's not a rumor about John showing his cock off - it's a fact. It happens all the time and he has admitted on t.v. that he does it.

by Anonymousreply 3704/23/2010

ya think, r29 ? That's quite a bit of overhang!

by Anonymousreply 3804/23/2010

But it's nice to suck on an overhang, yes, R38?

by Anonymousreply 3904/23/2010

Apparently he tied the end because he was being photographed that night (it's from an unpublished press shoot for a play he did in the 90s, which a fan actually stole from the theatre's archive collection and put online), and I guess didn't want to be too revealing, or perhaps to prevent any possibility of erection, so that's perhaps not quite its natural state.

by Anonymousreply 4004/23/2010

[quote] Apparently he tied the end

Huh? Not sure what you mean...

by Anonymousreply 4104/23/2010

The end is not tied.

And tying a cock would be more likely to cause an erection, not prevent it.

by Anonymousreply 4204/23/2010

It is tied -- look at the end. It's something actors do when they have nude scenes.

by Anonymousreply 4304/24/2010

FYI the 'Rex' pilot was re-edited and a voice-over added, and the new pilot tested well. New scripts have been ordered. So it looks like David will be LA bound.

by Anonymousreply 4404/24/2010

Heres a link on what R44 said. Interesing page in general.

by Anonymousreply 4504/24/2010

Cool R44. I really really hope Rex gets picked up. I LOVE David, but it also sounds like a cool show.

by Anonymousreply 4604/24/2010

His new British show sounds pretty good too.

by Anonymousreply 4704/24/2010

R32, I remember when Ally McBeal was on. Fox gave it a ton of promotion and prime timeslot and was enormously supportive of it its entire run. I'm not sure if I could see NBC doing that with Rex.

Has the new pilot leaked anywhere yet or is it too soon?

by Anonymousreply 4804/24/2010

R48 At least it isn't on FOX

by Anonymousreply 4904/24/2010

Is Fox much worse than NBC? They're more trigger-happy but otherwise no basic cable network is very patient with new shows these days. Either you're an immediate hit or you're shuffled off to a worse timeslot and cancelled.

Is Rex supposed to be traditional half-hour sitcom with laugh track?

by Anonymousreply 5004/24/2010

Some guy's unofficial blog on David Tennant and his projects including Rex news.

by Anonymousreply 5104/24/2010

Rex is an hour long dramedy, or as David describes it, "a drama with funny bits." No laugh track.

by Anonymousreply 5204/24/2010

"It is tied -- look at the end. It's something actors do when they have nude scenes."

R43, get real. Uncut guys do not tie off their cocks. It would constrict the skin and cause an erection. None of the uncut guys I have seen do nude scenes (eg. Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Rupert Graves etc) do that.

It is not tied. It is just foreskin overhang.

by Anonymousreply 5304/24/2010

I'm psyched to see how he does with Hamlet!

by Anonymousreply 5404/24/2010

He's just so talented! He can go from being the Doctor to doing comedy to doing Shakespeare. Love him!

by Anonymousreply 5504/25/2010

R43 obviously skipped school when they did basic human anatomy. That's a perfectly normal uncut cock. It look much like mine, and many others I've had the pleasure of seeing.

by Anonymousreply 5604/25/2010

It absolutely is, r39. :p

by Anonymousreply 5704/25/2010

So did the re-done Rex pilot use a different script? Televisionary seemed to like the original script:

by Anonymousreply 5804/25/2010

It's more or less the same script. They didn't actually remake the pilot (didn't reshoot anything) just added a voice over and reedited some parts.

by Anonymousreply 5904/25/2010

Voice over? As in Mary Alice? Ugh.

by Anonymousreply 6004/25/2010

I wonder who gets to suck on it, R57?

by Anonymousreply 6104/25/2010

I'm curious to see how his American accent sounds.

by Anonymousreply 6204/25/2010

I would rather they let him use his regular Scottish accent, it sounds so cool and sexy. Having him do an American accent just negates the point of casting David Tennant.

by Anonymousreply 6304/25/2010

Don't like his Scottish accent

by Anonymousreply 6404/25/2010

I'm sure I read somewhere he'd be using his Scots accent for the part.

by Anonymousreply 6504/25/2010

David uses an American accent in Rex. He had a lot of accent training before shooting the pilot, though, so his American accent should be better, if anyone's heard it before.

by Anonymousreply 6604/26/2010

I heard him reading something with an American accent and it wasn't sounded kinda bad, so its good to know he's getting accent training.

On another note, Hamlet is on Wednesday! I am so excited! I love Shakespeare and I love David and I love Patrick Stewart. The only obsession of mine missing is John Barrowman, but the man can't act so I can only imagine how he'd massacre Shakespeare! LOL!

by Anonymousreply 6704/27/2010

Hamlet tonight!!!

So excited!

He is very pretty in drag. Almost as pretty as Dave Foley in drag.

Thats pretty freaky R70. Thanks for that image...

by Anonymousreply 7104/29/2010

I've seen him do funny drag in a Doctor Who spoof from Friday Night Party and it was funny. But THAT is just scary (because he does make a pretty woman. freaky)

by Anonymousreply 7204/29/2010

Aparently Rex is Not Your Lawyer did not get picked up. NBC sucks!!

(But, they did have the sense to cancel Heroes though)

by Anonymousreply 7305/14/2010

That sucks! I was looking forward to it. David aside it sounded like a neat show.

The show had buzz among young people... that should be enough to pick it up. I guess the people at NBC haven't learned much since the Leno fiasco.

Scotland's not a republic yet, dearie

by Anonymousreply 7701/05/2012

His wife's currently heavily pregnant (her third kid), and their first anniversary was only a couple of weeks ago. Tennant announced it on a chat show tonight, and looked like he wanted to commit suicide. Of course this is the first time he's ever publicly acknowledged her existence and not freaked out when an interviewer mentioned her.

David Tennant's new series 'Broadchurch' to air on BBC America in 2013

Also starring Arthur Darvill!

All the threads about their relationship seem to get deleted, r79.

I've heard they have an arrangement. She gets very well paid and gets to be a SAHM with a bunch of nannies, and he gets to go off on location for months on end, have discreet relations on the side, and play daddy on weekends. Obviously works for them. He has his own separate home in London.
