Entertainment site It's Kinda Cool caught up with David Tennant, Arabella Weir and Jonathan Ross at the BAFTA Gala Screening of Sunshine On Leith last night. Presenter and producer Alex Olivier engaged the three in a riotous conversation that took in Atomic Kitten, Pierce Brosnan's singing and the effect of a good musical on a man.
David, who is a self-professed hardcore fan of The Proclaimers, and who had enjoyed the musical during its Scottish tour, expressed his excitement at the prospect of seeing the movie although he was gutted not to have been in it. However, he confessed that he was probably too old to play a squaddie, sparking some gentle ribbing about his age and youthful looks.
"He's 69. You know that when he started he was with Maggie Smith in rep!" joked Jonathan
The conversation turns inevitably to the subject of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special
"It's kinda cool!" was all that David would reveal, "I'm not saying nothing! I'm like a steel trap!"
