Who Do You Think You Are? Update!
Click pic to enlarge!
The current issue of the Radio Times reveals more details on David's episode of the fascinating BBC series, Who Do You Think You Are? They say:
It's the little moments that make Who Do You Think You Are? such a pleasure. Take David Tennant's delightful mum, and her good-natured disapproval of his stage name (taken from the Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant by the then 16 year old David McDonald).
She'd much rather he'd chosen a family name, such as David McLeod, or David Blair. David Blair? Doesn't have quite the right ring for a future Doctor Who, does it?
This exchange comes at the very start of a journey that takes Tennant, a charming and articulate guide, back to his native Scotland ("I'm intensly proud of Scotland, it's a purely emotional thing...somehow it' locked into by DNA") and to a rainy Isle Of Mull.
But as he digs deeper, Tennant becomes uncomfortable with certain aspects of his family history. The discovery of strongly Protestant forebears take him to Londonderry, Northern Ireland, where he is forced to confront the spectre of sectarianism and a side to his family's story he finds it hard to face up to.
  • David's episode of Who Do You Think You Are? will air on Wednesday 27th September at 21:00pm on BBC1.
  • It will be repeated on Tuesday 3rd October at 19:00pm on BBC2.
