While perusing the seasonal TV listings, I've noticed that this year's Yule viewing has a flavour that can only be described as Tennanty and just a little bit Davidish. As well as the two-part finale to his Whovian career, a certain wiry Scottish actor will be popping up as Hamlet, hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks, appearing on QI and the Catherine Tate Christmas special, reading bedtime stories on CBeebies, AND appearing in the BBC's Christmas idents.

Yes, I know what you're thinking. Is that it? Couldn't his agent have tried a teensy bit harder to find him some work?

Surely, with just a little lateral thinking, EVERY show over the festive period could have featured David Tennant in some shape or form? And oddly enough, when I sent out my tinsel-fuelled nanorobots to raid the dustbins of Television Centre, I retrieved the following classified data that reveals exactly what we COULD have watched, if only the BBC schedulers were even less imaginative than they clearly are.

All Tennant, all the time: that DT-TV secret schedule in full...Collapse )

Hmm. Perhaps, as with many tasty Christmas treats, there is a risk of overload. Consume with caution, viewers.
