PHOTO: David Tennant Attending The Opening Night Of Great Britain

Thanks to @famefad on twitter we have a photo of David Tennant attending the opening night of Billie Piper's new play, Great Britain, at the National Theatre on Monday night.

The play, which has received stunning reviews from the press, is by Richard Bean and is described as fast and furious. It's an anarchic and foul-mouthed satire about the press, the police and the political establishment. Billie Piper plays Paige Britain, ambitious young news editor of The Free Press, a tabloid newspaper locked in a never-ending battle for more readers.

David was interviewed by BBC Radio 4 during the play's interval saying "It's a fantastic piece, Billie is of course magnificent."

The director of the play has called it a grotesque distortion of reality, when asked what he made of it David replied:
"I think the reality, as we've learnt from some of the stuff that's come out in the Old Bailey is pretty grotesque to start with isn't it? So I think that's interesting, just to see that reflected in a slightly heightened form, but then at other times you wonder how heightened it really is with some of the truths that were uncovered ."
