David Tennant and Olivia Colman check out Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall’s interview with the Bridport News

I go up to the canteen at the interval every night just to check in. Bushy’s always there, usually having a pie. He likes to have a pie at the interval.

But you forgot a bit:

"…And then Aumerle, and one of the Ladies in Waiting. That’s usually the gang in the Green Room in the interval, that I hang out with for about ten minutes every night."

Between the Flint Castle scene and the deposition. Probably at least partly in costume. It’s the ultimate foursome of adorableness and doom.

DT stars in indie short: 96 Ways To Say I Love You


More details have been released about the short film written and directed by Daisy Aitkens (Fear, Stress And Anger, Watson & Oliver) and starring David Tennant.

David stars as Mark in the 11-minute short called 96 Ways To Say I Love You, a comedy film about two people saying three special words. The film co-stars Georgia Moffett in the role of Olive. Georgia, a friend of Daisy’s who performed with her in Fear, Stress And Anger, also produced the film.

Music is by The Proclaimers.


96 Ways To Say I Love You
Who says it first?

Two lovers on a journey to say I love you…
This film explores that age old question via a mockumentary interwoven with a love story narrative. As well as, naturally, a great twist. 96 Ways To Say I Love You investigates the fragile power dynamic of saying those three little words. It’s a romcom with real characters, real relationships, real screw ups.

No screening information is available yet.


David Tennant: At the same time, you’re also thinking, What’s he gonna look like? How’s that gonna feel?
Greg Doran: Does he have long hair?
David Tennant: Does he have long hair? [flips braid] Sometimes he does. Does he have gold fingernails? Is he that sort of a guy? Does he wear armor? Is he like the people around him? And we thought, no actually, he’s surrounded by big, gruff blokes in armor, but he chooses to have rather flighty hair and to paint his nails gold and so that says something about his character. And so all these things are hopefully contributing to the final picture.
Greg Doran: He’s constructing an image of kingship, in a way. In his final appearance at Flint Castle he does a really good job at making himself seem as kingly as it is possible to be. (from Richard II Q&A)
