a little bit of David Tennant

I know, I know, FlickFilosopher.com is threatening to turn into the David Tennant/Doctor Who blog. I’m sorry. I can’t help it. I haven’t felt like such — at the risk of sounding like my mother — a screaming teeny-bopper since I was a screaming teeny-bopper.

So skip this if you’re not a fan of Tennant. If you are, here’s a treat: it’s his audition for the 1994 British TV miniseries Takin’ Over the Asylum — which is just out on Region 2 DVD, and which I’ll review very soon (have I mentioned how much I love my region-free player?). It was Tennant’s big break, and it’s clear watching the actual production, 15 years later, that he was destined for great things. A highlight of the two-disc set is this audition tape, which of course would never have been included if he weren’t, you know, David Tennant(TM) today, but is so worth watching because it’s clear even from this that he was going to be a force to be reckoned with:

You can get a bit of background at DailyRecord.co.uk, a Scottish paper that is very excited about local boy Tennant making good.
