David Tennant in 'Viva Blackpool'  
So I friended fid_gin a few days ago from the Doctor Who fandom because, good posts, good discussion, good information ... including this:

David Tennant ... dancing, and singing to The Smiths. Can we say AWESOME!?!?!? Why, yes, we can! So I went back on youtube and grabbed a few other clips of his from Viva Blackpool, which has been so added to my must-watch David/Billie stuff after I've recovered from the end of this season. (No, I haven't forsaken Christopher Eccleston, I've just seen all of his stuff before except for The Second Coming -- written by Russell T. Davies!!!!!! -- which I have on my Netflix queue.)

Anyhoo, more clips , most of them are fairly short in length, but hey, it's David and he's singing and you can sorta hear him. So YAY!

Warning, there be sex in this one, but it's a LOT more funny than sexy. Alas, he doesn't do much singing, more, uhm, harmonizing.

There are a few more clips on youtube, but these are the best that I found where you can actually hear him and you know there's the dancing in the first, and the eating ice cream in the second and the sexing it up in the last, so FUN! to add to the singing.

I gotta say I'm really gypped that we were never given some ridiculously What!?!? Why would they?!?! But who cares!?!?! because it would be awesome karaoke moment with the Doctor and Rose since both David and Billie have sung in their careers. I mean, would that have been too much to ask?

No, I really don't think so.

I loved this! I've always been waiting for him to sing after I saw VB...

Maybe, not really expecting it though. After all, Billie was actually a pop superstar for a bit there in the U.K. and they didn't have her sing at all.

OMG, "Blackpool" is AMAZING!!! Not only for DT, but the lead (David Morrissey) is outstanding, as well. :D And IMHO, DT has great chemistry with Sarah Parrish (Natalie). Do you recognize her?

...why yes, she was the spider woman in "The Runaway Bride" ;)

Someone had the entire Blackpool series up on YouTube...they were broken out into 4-5 parts, if you can't wait till the end of the season. :) I just adored it!!! "Viva Laughlin" wasn't even close... ;p

(Ooh, I spy...a "Cassanova" icon, yes? :)

I expected a comment from you because I do recall you talking about Blackpool before. Nope, didn't recognize her as the spider woman, gee, I wonder why, LOL!

It's not from Casanova, but it's a photo shoot that was likely done FOR Casanova -- which I haven't watched yet, but that like Billie's Secret Diary of a Call Girl, I have sitting on my computer waiting to watch.

Hee...I didn't recognize her as the spider woman either -- I had to be told. ;p But it's pretty darn funny if you watch all of "Blackpool" just because...yeah, not exactly her role in that show. ;)

"Casanova" is quite good -- will love to hear what you think of it when you watch (I was lucky enough to see they were rerunning it on PBS and taped it then!! Ah, good ol' PBS...no standards & practices whatsoever ;p )

Pretty icon -- love the colors. :D I also ADORE your new Nine/Rose icon, OMG. I love when they were both so happy and smiling and sweet. :)

I'll probably watch both the Billie and David stuff later this summer.

Thanks re: icon, I wanted a fun Billie/David icon since I've been talking about their other work lately. I figured the somewhat psychedelic quality fit the image. As for the Nine/Rose icon, I LOVE that picture so much and it took me forever to get the right lightness for it to match their smiles. I love how it turned out. I'm glad you like it too.

Dude, you HAVE to watch Blackpool. I fucking love it so much. Besides the ridiculous dance numbers, the writing and the performances are so great.

I know, I know. It's on the list. It's on the David/Billie/Chris list for summer viewing. I have to get through the Who drought somehow, and I can rewatch my "Her Name was Rose" collection only so many times before I become dehydrated. So other Billie/David/Chris stuff is on the agenda.
