David Tennant assures people it's all going to be OK in emotional speech

Don't worry about the world changing so fast, you've got a Time Lord to cheer you up

With some worried about the many changes that have taken place in the political world in the last year, they need a reassuring word from the universe’s finest. They need The Doctor.


Fortunately, David Tennant, the tenth incarnation of the Time Lord is on hand. While appearing on last night’s The Last Leg, the Broadchurch actor was asked by a viewer to tell the audience at home it’s all going to be just fine.

And so Tennant began an incredibly uplifting speech with the words: “It’s all going to be okay. Trust me, I’m a doctor.”

He then went on to urge everyone the time had come to be “positively rebellious and rebelliously positive.”

“As long as we stand up for what we believe in, don’t give in to anger or violence, look out for the little guy, keep an eye on the big guys, refuse to keep our mouths shut, and just generally try not to be d***s,” he said, then “every little thing is gonna be alright.”

Watch the whole speech (and top up your weekend motivation) below…


The Last Leg is on 10pm next Friday, C4
