Ben Miller "David Tennant Is So Suave And Good Looking"

What We Did On Our Holiday actor Ben Miller has been chatting to the Radio Times about playing the brother of David Tennant in the film, which is released in UK cinemas today.

Ben says: "I was a little bit intimidated about playing Billy Connolly's son and David Tennant's brother, if only on their Scottishness stakes. If that was a high jump, they're setting the Scottish bar right at its limit.
As a fictional brother, he was infuriating. He's so suave and good looking and seems to have it all together whereas, I think as a fictional brother, certainly for my character, he is an absolute nightmare. Anyone who looks that good in clothes is just too annoying."

Ben, who was seen recently as the Sheriff Of Nottingham in the Doctor Who episode Robot Of Sherwood, also revealed that as a big fan of the sci fi show he was happy to chat to former Doctor, David on set about the series:

"Not only did I chat Who but I brought my son with me and David was absolutely brilliant with him. The tenth Doctor was where he started when he began watching and I remember sitting in the make up trailer and Sonny just sidling up to David and asking, 'How does the sonic screwdriver work?' And David giving him the most brilliant explanation that literally went on for 15 minutes describing all the different buttons and what they did. Sonny was just so smitten at the end of it, it was fantastic – a really magical moment."
