RSC Appeal Update

Image
The RSC have been in touch with some fabulous news!
Apparently a very generous fan from the USA and her equally generous employer have given an amazing £2000 to our appeal to get a seat named after David. How wonderful is that?! The appeal is to help the RSC's Transforming Our Theatres campaign.
It takes our total raised so far to a staggering £4915! Which means we are less than £100 from our £5000 target!

If you would like to know more about the Take A Seat For David appeal to help the RSC and maybe make a donation yourself then read on:

Final Sacrifice For Ten

Image
IDW Publishing have announced plans for their last Doctor Who comic book featuring David's Doctor.
'Final Sacrifice' will be the final outing for Tennant's Doctor - a four-issue arc that will not tie directly into 'The End of Time'.
"We were told from the very beginning that 'The Waters Of Mars' would lead straight into the regeneration ending," said series writer Tony Lee. "So we set up the whole season arc to end directly before 'The Waters Of Mars', which worked really well as the mindset The Doctor is in during the start of that episode matches the mindset he has at the end of the series of comics."But we decided that we needed to have a solid end, something that would weaken The Doctor, that would push him towards the final song."And then, of course, we saw that between 'The Waters Of Mars' and 'The End Of Time', The Doctor went off and had a load of adventures, which meant that this wasn't right b…

Details of David's latest film project have been announced at the Cannes Film Festival.
He will be taking on the role of James in a new romantic comedy set in Scotand. The film will also star Kelly MacDonald and Alice Eve.

ScreenDaily report:
Decoy Bride tells the story of a superstar actress, Lara (Eve), who just wants to marry her cute British boyfriend James (Tennant), and believes the sleepy Scottish Island of Hegg is the one place the world’s press won’t find them. But when an ingenious paparazzo tracks them down, the diva must find a decoy bride and thinks local girl Katie (MacDonald) will be an ideal replacement. But when Katie meets James, sparks fly.
The film is directed by Sheree Folkson, whose credits include the Ugly Betty and Casanova. Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae of Ecosse Films and Paul Ritchie will produce the film. The script was written by Sally Phillips (UK Channel 4’s award winning Smack The Pony) and Neil Jaworski…
