This video of David Tennant reading Stephen Mackey’s Miki is adorable. It combines beautiful illustrations from the story with David Tennant’s voice and scenes of him actually speaking into the camera. I think it’s intended for children, judging by the way Tennant introduces the story, but I still really enjoy it. Continue reading
The above video was made by the cast and crew of Doctor Who at the end of David Tennant’s time as the Doctor, and it’s fabulous. Continue reading
The first time I ever saw David Tennant in anything — or any of the Doctor Who cast, for that matter — was in a YouTube video of a sketch performed by the fantastic Catherine Tate (Donna Noble) and David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor) for Comic Relief‘s 2007 Red Nose Day. It was utterly hilarious . . . and I loved his Scottish accent. That video is the reason why, when I finally started watching Doctor Who, the Tenth Doctor was my Doctor from the beginning.

As you probably know, I love Doctor Who. And if you do any kind of Google search, you will soon see that I am not the only one. The following are some of my favorite Doctor Who-related comics and other humorous things.

The Doctor and Rose
When I started watching Doctor Who, I got deeply invested in the the Doctor and Rose very quickly — invested in their relationship, their chemistry, and their potential as a couple. It started with Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor, but it really warmed up with Tennant‘s Tenth. It was in the way they held hands almost instinctively, the way the Doctor smiled at Rose with a special warmth, the way they were so happy together. Continue reading

The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble
At first, I didn’t like Donna (played by the fantastic Catherine Tate). I had become really attached to Rose, and I didn’t want a new companion, especially not some shrill, obnoxious woman who didn’t trust the Doctor. By the end of the first episode, however, I could see that she might be good for the Doctor — she stopped him, if nothing else. But she didn’t want to stay with the Doctor (more fool her). So we moved on to the beautiful, talented Martha Jones.
Fast-forward a year or so — Donna’s out investigating suspicious occurances, looking for the Doctor. She’s very take-charge; she mostly holds her own against the Doctor. Donna Noble is a force of nature. I end up loving Donna. Continue reading
Why River is the Best Match for the Doctor
The Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) and River Song (Alex Kingston)
As far as I’m concerned, River Song and the Doctor belong together. They are, without a doubt, my Doctor Who OTP (One True Pairing). Granted, I haven’t seen most of the classic Who, but of all of the people in the new Who, River Song is the best person for the Doctor. I love their chemistry; I love their potential.

David Tennant, the Doctor
I adore David Tennant, and it really is a shame that his Hot Wall post is such a short little thing (it was my first of the Hot Wall posts, and I was still figuring out how to make it work). So, I’ve created this addition to the first. Continue reading
The very first person on my virtual Hot Wall? The inestimably fantastic David Tennant.
I’ve started watching the 2005 version of Doctor Who, and I’ve been loving it. It’s hilarious, and it’s poignant, and I adore David Tennant as the tenth Doctor. However, watching it has also gotten me thinking about a number of philosophical questions. In particular, the Doctor’s regenerations make me think about the problem of personal identity.
