Doctor Who, out of time: David Tennant’s farewell interview with Russell T. Davies

Aug. 25, 2009 | 1:02 p.m.

Over at Boing Boing they have an interview with David Tennant and Russell T Davies and if you love Doctor Who, well, you’ll love this…all 20 minutes of it. The interviewer is Richard Metzger of Dangerous Minds. Here is how Metzger described the interview:

This interview took place at an interesting moment in time for both men as they’ve only just left behind their respective starring roles in one of the biggest television successes in the world today. As difficult as that may sound, you can only imagine how much pressure is off them after four years of practically non-stop work. I think it shows in this interview, as they’re both very relaxed and jovial. David had just come from Comic-Con where he was treated with fan adulation bordering on Beatlemania and Russell is starting a new phase of his life here in Los Angeles.”

    Yes, David was definitely greeted as a Rock Star at Comic Con. Proof…

    Just some highlights of his appearance. :-)

    I just started as a fan of Doctor Who Ten and then to know DT is leaving, how bitter sweet. But that's OK I *finally* got into Doctor Who as DT's Doctor finally won my heart.

  3. Rob says:

    Davies has single-handedly ruined DW, and I'm glad he's leaving the series. Truth be told, the time lord ended with #7 (Sylvester McCoy) and everything past that just isn't Doctor Who to me.

  4. I found this post a bit late, but thank you so much for posting it. I can't believe Russell T. Davies has moved to LA–my town! This interview was great. They did seem very relaxed and happy. I am surprised that I like the new doctor and latest series as much as I do considering how fantastic the series has been with these guys. I guess it's win for everybody–especially us viewers.

    I do wish people would stop referring to it as "a children's show". It lost that standing during the first doctor. Yes, it's "safe" for children, but it's so creative and not dumbed down, that it's interesting for people of all ages.
