Blightyvision Special: “Much Ado About Nothing”

Starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate Directed by Josie Rourke Theatre, especially London theatre, is such a mess when it comes to seeing (or rather not seeing) performances.  It’s not like movies, where time and money and intention will get you to it at some point.  You can have the time and location and finances […]

Trailer Watch: Fright Night

Colin Farrell is getting all sorts of chances to be evil this year. Fresh on the heels of the first look at Horrible Bosses, we get to take a look at Fright Night. Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted […]

Blightyvision: “Twenty Twelve”

Written and directed by John Morton Starring Hugh Bonneville, Amelia Bullmore, Olivia Colman, Jessica Hynes, and Karl Theobald Narrated by David Tennant One thing I heard a lot about while I was overseas in March was the encroaching 2012 Olympic games — specifically, just how over the whole thing everyone is already.  I’ve yet to […]

So the American legal drama/Tennie vehicle “Rex Is Not Your Doctor Lawyer” will likely never be seeing the light of day — it’s just recently been passed over for the fall 2010 TV season as well, and the set’s allegedly been dismantled.  However, a YouTuber has been kind enough to pass along a snippet of […]

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: “Single Father”

Did you know David Tennant is Scottish!?  Good Lord! I’ve never believed in a “Doctor Who” curse — former Doctors becoming so associated with the role that no one would ever accept them as anything else.  And honestly, if I did, David Tennant’s career as of now would disabuse me of the notion pretty quickly.  […]

Blightyvision: “Casanova”

Or: “David Tennant Fangirl Catnip” Written and created by Russell T. Davies Starring David Tennant, Peter O’Toole, Laura Fraser, and Nina Sosanya If you want a strong script from RTD, you need only do two things: take away his aliens, and let him write about sex.  If you want a strong performance from David Tennant, […]
