What We Did On Our Holiday: Milngavie Residents On Meeting David Tennant

Residents of the Scottish town Milngavie have been talking about their experiences of having the cast and crew of David Tennant's latest film project, What We Did On Out Holiday, filming amongst them.
Scenes for the comedy were recorded there last Wednesday and local teashop owner Anne Gibb has been talking to the Milngavie And Bearsden Herald about meeting with David Tennant.

The film, which is partly improvised, focuses on Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) who are taking their three children on a trip to Scotland for a big family gathering. They are in the midst of a difficult divorce, and have asked the kids to keep it a secret from their extended family. But as the inevitable feuds kick in, a completely unexpected turn of events involving the children causes further tensions to rise to the surface. And with the repercussions that ensue - hilarious and emotional in equal measure - the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.
Anne said: “We heard some of the lines and it was very funny.
“The children were very good, giving them the opportunity to say things off script is a great idea as kids naturally say the funniest things sometimes.
“It was a fun day although it was tiring, the crew were here from 8am to 2pm.
“I was on my feet all day walking back and forwards to their table.
“Every time they cut the filming we had to remember where we were standing for when the camera started rolling again so that was a bit tricky.
“David Tennant seemed really nice and he said we had a lovely tearoom.
“They reorganised all the furniture and told us they had specifically needed a tearoom which was upstairs.”
Filming has also taken place in Doune, Scotstoun and Croftamie.
