David Tennant awarded an honorary doctorate by Royal Conservatoire of ScotlandFormer television Doctor David Tennant today became a Doctor for real, as the actor received an honorary doctorate for drama from The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.

The actor, who studied at the Conservatoire between 1988 and 1991 when it was called the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, said:
I'm honoured and rather humbled to be here - it's all quite overwhelming but lovely to be back. It evokes some very vivid memories. It was a very important time for me. I don't think I would have survived without my time here - for me it was essential. Three years of getting to practice in a safe environment. I was quite young, quite green, and I did a lot of growing up here and learned an enormous amount. They were very formative years that I look back on very fondly.
