We know what you’re thinking. Yes, it’s great to have a bit of time off over Christmas to spend with family and friends, sharing the love that binds you all together – but how soon can you blow them all off to watch David Tennant do something on the telly?
Now your fevered prayers have been answered, because here at RadioTimes.com we’ve picked over the schedules to find the very best of Tennant TV this festive season. And you said we never get you anything nice.
If you’re hankering for the days when the Tenth Doctor was at the helm of the Tardis, you’d be best to turn your attention to digital channel Watch over the festive period. From tomorrow, they have roughly an episode a day on air (including the appropriately festive The Runaway Bride), so there’s plenty of chances to catch up with Tennant’s days as the Time Lord.
You can see a full list of the Watch episodes he appears in here – though if you want a more varied selection, Tennant’s Doctor Who tenure can be found in its entirety on Netflix, Amazon Prime and BBC Store.
If you prefer your David Tennant in a festive flavor, this British film sequel (which sees him play a hapless teacher trying to win a choir competition) might be for you. Also starring Jessica Hynes, Marc Wootton, Jason Watkins and Joanna Page, it’s a good slice of family fun.
The actor has a small but crucial voice role in this acclaimed animated movie, where he plays Viking warrior and second-in-command Spitelout. Who said you couldn’t get your David Tennant fix on Christmas Day?
