Doctor Who opened more doors than it closed. I was never bored, but I wanted to make sure I left before it became a job. I’m very glad it happened. Mercifully, I haven’t been typecast.Tennant is featured in the magazine to promote the new drama, True Love which comes to BBC One next week.
The five part semi-improvised series is being shown over four days, beginning with the episode starring Tennant next Sunday at 10.25pm.
Written and directed by Bafta-winner Dominic Savage the drama comprises separate but overlapping love stories set in the same seaside town. David Tennant stars in the first as Nick, a happily married man whose wife and children mean the world to him, until the appearance of his first love from years before forces him to question everything he holds dear. "It wasn’t what I expected," says the 41-year-old actor. "We were given a storyline, but no dialogue, which I’ve never done before…"
Episode Three, shown on Tuesday, stars former companion Billie Piper as Holly, a schoolteacher forever destined to be the other woman, stuck in an affair with a married man.
