NEW INTERVIEW: Old English Dinners and Cigarettes After Sex Amongst David Tennant’s Favourite Things

Image
David Tennant has spoken to the New York Times ahead of the premiere of his new drama series Deadwater Fell on Acorn TV next week.

David is currently at home in London with his family and spoke to the paper about the 10 things he’d rather not do without. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.


1.Tim Minchin I feel slightly proprietorial with Tim Minchin because he’s one of those people that I went to see in small comedy clubs when he wasn’t Tim Minchin, International Superstar. And I got to know his quirky, barbed, hilarious songs before most people did. Then he started writing Broadway musicals [“Groundhog Day,” “Matilda”] and starring in movies and taking over the world, quite rightly.

2. “Dear Evan Hansen” I managed to get tickets to see the original cast in New York maybe three years ago. My wife and my eldest son and I went knowing that this was very much the hot ticket but not …
