David Tennant Is Starting His Own Podcast
The one and only David Tennant has announced that he’ll be starting up his own podcast in the near future. Podcast fans rejoice!
Naturally, David Tennant is going to be the host for this new podcast. The podcast’s title, very appropriately, is David Tennant Does A Podcast With… This very clearly implies that there are going to be a lot of guest appearances in the podcast, which is incredibly exciting!
According to Tennant, it’s going to be “Me and some cool people, talking and stuff – on a podcast.” Sounds like a dream come true for podcast and Tennant fans alike.
The only downside to the podcast is that it sounds like it will be exclusively airing on iTunes. So Tennant fans without an iTunes account may have to figure out another solution (like pestering a friend with an account), or just cave and make an account for this purpose.
Based on the list of rumored and confirmed guests, it looks like Tennant is going to be pulling a lot of actors that he’s previously worked with, or who have worked on the same projects as him. This has set his fandom into a tizzy as they try to predict who else will be making an appearance.
So far there’s a decent list of guests that have been teased to join. Jodie Whittaker, the newest Doctor for Doctor Who. Krysten Ritter from Jessica Jones, where David Tennant played the antagonist Kilgrave. Ian McKellen, who was in Shakespeare Live! with Tennant. Jon Hamm, Tennant’s costar on Good Omens. Michael Sheen, another actor from Good Omens (here’s hoping we see more of that cast as well).
The First Episode
Olivia Colman is going to be the first guest for the podcast. She was David Tennant’s costar on Broadchurch, and it’s likely that many fans will be thrilled to see (er, hear) them back together again. The first episode should be available on iTunes by now. Oh, and did I mention that Colman’s dog may be making an appearance as well?
