David Tennant has been speaking to the press after receiving his Honorary Degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow today.
Speaking after the ceremony he said: "I'm honoured and rather humbled to be here - it's all quite overwhelming but lovely to be back. It evokes some very vivid memories.
"It was a very important time for me. I don't think I would have survived without my time here - for me it was essential. Three years of getting to practice in a safe environment.
"I was quite young, quite green, and I did a lot of growing up here and learned an enormous amount. They were very formative years that I look back on very fondly."
