Of course you all know that Richard Armitage is just the bit on the side. David Tennant is my main attraction. I discovered him in 2006 when he played the lead in Doctor Who. I didn’t even like him for three whole episodes and then it dawned that this man could really act. He went on to become the most popular Doctor ever (which takes some doing) and beloved enough to be called “a national treasure.” I crossed the pond to see his acclaimed “Hamlet,” and popular “Much Ado About Nothing” where I confirmed that DT really is a special talent. (These shows are available for digital download; you should really watch.) His latest popular series is “Broadchurch.” Coworkers and fans like remark that he’s a genuinely nice caring person. I observed the same thing especially when he dealt with his small fans. (He was solicitous of me when I got pushed into a barricade by a rambunctious crowd, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.) The man is simply a peach. *Squee* *Cough*D
Anyway, DT received a Special Recognition Award at the National Television Awards. He’s always been popular at the NTA’s; why not give him another? Amazingly they managed to keep it a total secret from him. So here is the presentation and his acceptance speech.
