David Wins Scotland's Best Comedy Moment

David's Comic Relief sketch with Catherine Tate was today named Scotland's greatest comedy moment.

The charity ScotsCare ran the poll to celebrate Scottish comedy on St Andrew's Day.

The sketch, which won 62 per cent of the vote, features Doctor Who actor Tennant as a Scots school teacher teaching English to Tate's character Lauren Cooper.

Scots voting in London remained true to traditional comics, with Billy Connolly scoring highest, Rab C Nesbitt taking second place and David Tennant coming third.

More than 500 votes were cast in the search.

A shortlist was devised with the help of three Scottish comedians, Craig Hill, Miles Jupp and Janey Godley, who were present when the final vote took place.

David Tennant said: "Thank you ScotsCare, and thank you to everyone who voted.

"Obviously I'm delighted to be part of Scotland's greatest comedy moment, but the funny stuff is all down to Catherine Tate, I'm just her bitch.

"But seeing as she's an unfunny southerner I'll very gladly accept this great honour."

ScotCare's chief executive Willie Docherty said: "St Andrew's Day is the perfect time to celebrate Scottish achievements and comedy is definitely one of those.

"Scots have a tremendous sense of humour and Scottish comedians are at the forefront of British comedy."

David will be starring in The Wooden Overcoat on BBC Radio 4 over Christmas. It's a play set in the 1950's and adapted by Mark Gatiss.
The BBC have released the following press release:
David Tennant and Julia Davis star in this macabre and hilarious drama set in London in 1951 and dramatised by Mark Gatiss. Benji has murdered his mistress and, much to his surprise, he has got away with it.
At a loss as to what to do after his acquittal, Benji discovers the Asterisk Club, founded by Clifford Flush. The Club is for those who have strayed beyond the pale, but not paid the ultimate price. To join, qualified prospective members must name the Club as the beneficiary of their will to enjoy its comforts and unique benefits.
However, with the Club full, Benji finds himself lodging in a rat-infested house next door with a young bohemian couple, Fan and Peter. Retired rat catcher Mr Alfred L Beesum arrives but, suddenly, Benji is found dead.
Set in the pre-chic Chelsea of rat-infested boarding houses and tattered ration books, The Wooden Overcoat stars Tom Allen as Benji, Julia Davis as Fan, David Tennant as Peter and Alan David as Mr Beesum.
The Wooden Overcoat will air on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday 22nd December at 14:30pm.

Doctor Who Update
Click the pic to enlarge!
The BBC have today confirmed that Billie Piper will be returning to Doctor Who.
She will star in three episodes of the sci-fi drama, reprising her role as the Doctor's companion, Rose Tyler.
Rose's return will mean the Doctor has three assistants in next year's series - Donna, played by Catherine Tate, and Freema Agyeman as Martha.
The new series begins in March and will run for 13 episodes. There will be three special editions in 2009 before the show takes a break until 2010.
A separate show based on Rose had been planned by writer and series producer Russell T Davies, but was scrapped when Davies decided the programme was "a spin-off too far".
Filming is currently under way in Cardiff for the new series of Doctor Who, which sees the Doctor meeting an old group of enemies - the Sontarans - 35 years after first encountering them.

David Meets Cancer Experts At Cardiff University

David, in his new role as patron of the Association of International Cancer Research (AICR), has learned more about world-leading genetic research at Cardiff University. Whilst there he met one of charity’s newest fellows, Dr Andrew Tee from the School of Medicine Institute of Medical Genetics.

Dr Tee was awarded 750,000 from the charity to develop his research at the Institute. The charity funds many cancer research projects worldwide and aims to support promising young scientists who are ready to form their own research teams. The research goal of Dr Tee’s newly established lab at Cardiff is to uncover new drug targets for the treatment of tuberous sclerosis. “We are carrying out basic research to better understand the complex signals that are involved in the growth of tumours in this serious genetic disease,” he said.

The results of previous laboratory research carried out by Dr Tee, when working as a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard, led to the initiation of a clinical trial in patients with tuberous sclerosis by researchers at the Institute. The early results look very encouraging. “One year into the trial, we are seeing a marked reduction in the size of the kidney tumours that we are treating in patients with tuberous sclerosis” said Professor Julian Sampson, head of the Institute of Medical Genetics.

The team hope that their combined expertise in genetic and cancer biology will lead to further clinical trials for previously untreatable familial tumours. Dr Tee said: “I was pleased to meet with David Tennant, our progress would not be possible if it where not for the support of independent charities such as AICR.”

David said: “I know only too well that cancer strikes without regard to age or race, country or creed, fame or fortune. I believe AICR’s approach to funding research, wherever in the world it is taking place, is at the forefront of the battle to bring cancer under control and I am proud to have been asked to become a patron.”

The Institute of Medical Genetics is a winner in this year’s Queen’s Anniversary Prizes , which recognise world class levels of excellence in UK Higher Education.

Cancer Research UK Little Star Awards
David is backing a charity award for children fighting cancer to receive a special charity award for their courage.
Cancer Research UK is launching its Little Star Awards and is inviting friends and relatives to nominate young cancer patients dear to them for special recognition in the run-up to Christmas.
The Little Star accolade is given to all children under 17 who are nominated and have undergone cancer treatment in the last five years.
Unlike other children's awards, there is no judging panel because Cancer Research UK believes each and every child who confronts cancer is extra special.
Each recipient will receive a certificate signed by David, Kylie Minogue, footballer Ryan Giggs and other famous faces, a special Little Star trophy and a goody bag courtesy of Disney, HarperCollins books, Jetix children's TV and Orion Children's Books.
Cancer Research UK is the UK's largest single supporter of children's cancer research.

The charity helps fund the Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group which organises and manages the treatment of virtually all children with cancer via a network of 21 paediatric centres throughout the UK. The CCLG is one of the world's leading childhood cancer clinical trial groups and is dedicated to improving specialist care so that new ways of treating, curing and preventing the disease can be found. Helen Johnstone, from Cancer Research UK said: "This is the fifth year that Cancer Research UK's Little Star awards have celebrated the nation's child cancer patients and survivors, recognising the unique challenges faced by young people diagnosed with cancer. "Cancer is the most common cause of death from illness in children aged between one and 14. Each year, about 1,500 children in the UK are diagnosed with the disease, that is one in every 500. However, there is some good news. Thanks to research, more than seven out of 10 children with cancer are successfully treated and over 80 per cent of children survive the most common childhood leukaemia. Our awards celebrate this success while bringing a little festive cheer into the lives of families whose children are affected by the disease."Other celebrities supporting Cancer Research UK's Little Star awards include boy band McFly and singer Lemar.

  • To nominate a Little Star simply email, call 0113 231 9828 to request a nomination form, or visit the Cancer Research website click here. The awards are open to all under-17s who have cancer or have been treated for the disease in the last five years.

David interrupts. "Yes, is this post-Adric or not?"

"Oh God, we're questioning the logic of the script now," sniggers Peter. "We're turning into Colin Baker!"

Peter goes on to shock David with revelations about his old costume... "[Pointing at the celery on his jacket] Close up, my one looked like a piece of embroidery."

The Stage Interview
Click the pic to enlarge!
An exclusive interview with David is featured in the latest issue of The Stage.
Thanks to The Stage Blog here's a sneak peek at it:

There are two very different views of actor David Tennant on display in newsagents at the moment. He is back in his familiar time traveller’s garb promoting a special Doctor Who episode for Children in Need (written by Steven Moffat, the segment will see the Tenth Doctor coming face to face with the fifth, played by a returning Peter Davison).

On the cover of this week’s issue of The Stage, though, he’s dressed down substantially, in the guise of a driving instructor for the new one-off BBC1 comedy drama Learners, written by and starring Jessica Hynes — who, of course, guest starred with Tennant in the superb Who episodes Human Nature and The Family of Blood.

In one of his only print interviews, Tennant talks about his forthcoming stage turns as Hamlet and Berowne in Love’s Labours Lost for the RSC, his future in Doctor Who — and why he considers himself “the least sexy man on the planet”.

Of his forthcoming theatrical ventures, Tennant says:

“It doesn’t feel right somehow to know that I’ll be doing a matinee of Hamlet on some afternoon in 18 months’ time,” he ruefully admits. “It’s lovely, but it’s also absurd. Seeing the dates printed in black and white in the RSC schedule makes me feel terrified a whole year in advance. It’s fear on a daily basis.”

And of course, there’s one role for which Tennant is known and respected — a certain time travelling Doctor…

“You could find yourself in the present or hundreds of years in the past – or five billion years in the future. And the standard of the writing and of the stories is extremely high. I might tweak the odd line here or there, but I’d never dream of pointing out to the writers, in that hackneyed phrase, that my character wouldn’t say this or do that. Russell [T Davies] is the best, so why play around with the best?”

But being so well-kndown does have its downsides: Tennant admits that he always thought fame would bring with it great self-confidence, but the opposite turns out to be true:

“Before I became known and I was in the company of somebody who was famous, I always imagined that it gives you great self-confidence. But I’ve discovered that the opposite is true. It does make you self-conscious and it can be a bit frightening at times. But I’m not complaining. I’m not an idiot. I knew what I was taking on.”

  • For the full interview, buy the November 8 issue of The Stage, priced 1.30 and available from most high street newsagents.

Search For Best Scottish Comedy Moment
A search for Scotland's greatest comedy moment has been launched.
Charity ScotsCare, which supports Scots living in London, is running the competition, and the winner will be announced to celebrate St Andrew's Day.
Three top Scots comedians have come together to draw up a list of finalists.
Craig Hill, Miles Jupp and Janey Godley worked with people who have used ScotsCare's services to come up with the country's most side-splitting moments.
David's Comic Relief appearance in one of Catherine Tate's sketches has made the shortlist.
Others on the shortlist include Billy Connolly's routine on Glasgow drunks; Billy Connolly's routine on singing at a Glasgow party; Rikki Fulton as Reverend IM Jolly; Rab C Nesbitt's conversations with Mary Doll; Francie and Josie's "Had A Curry" sketch from their final performance.
Mr Hill added two other moments that nearly made it onto the list were the first time he heard Mel Gibson's Scottish accent in Braveheart; and the initial budget estimate for the Scottish Parliament of 40 million.
ScotsCare chief executive Willie Docherty said: "Scots are known for their tremendous sense of humour. What better way to celebrate St Andrew's Day than celebrating Scottish comedy and having a laugh at the same time?"
The final vote will take place at a comedy evening at London's Caledonian Club on Wednesday, November 28.

David and Freema collected the award for the show and thanked the fabulous team behind it as well as the fans who had voted:
"If there was time, Freema and I would kiss every individual in the audience. Unfortunately there just isn't. Thank you for watching it; thank you for enjoying it. I'm having the time of my life and I'm so glad you're enjoying it."
David, who arrived with co-star Freema Agyeman, thanked his “lucky pants”, joking: “I’ve always got my lucky pants on except when I haven’t got any pants on at all — and that’s unlucky.”
He went on: “I spend my time filming a Christmas special with Kylie Minogue, then I come to a fabulous awards ceremony and then go and film more scenes with Kylie. It doesn’t get much better than this!”
