Happy Birthday April! [3/7]
”I made my choice a long time ago, and I’m never gonna leave you”
Human Nature/Family of Blood Behind the Scenes
From Jason Arnopp’s Human Nature article (DWM #383)
David Tennant is consuming all of the drugs he can lay his hands on. Not in a tabloid-pleasing way, mind. “Day Nurse, First Defence, you name it,” he says, walking across the Museum’s grounds towards the Villiage Hall. He’s copped a dose of the flu, yet is still working hard. “I don’t sound as bad as I feel,” he grimaces. “Which is great for the show, but crap in terms of sympathy!” Maybe the Doctor’s alter ego John Smith has a cold?
“Yeah,” says David, sounding unsure. “Well, it was the Doctor who had a cold yesterday…”
DWM decides to leave poor David alone for the two days we have on-set. That’s just the kind of people we are.”
It’s the morning of 9 January at Upper Boat Studios, and David still has a cough which makes his knees buckle. Between takes at Wainwright’s cottage, he slips out of the John Smith persona, sits down and closes his eyes. It’s a far cry from his usual energised joking around, chatting to young set-visitors and signing autographs. Just as Human Nature is about feeling the Doctor’s absence, there’s clearly an absence of David felt on-set. Vitally though, each and every cry of “Action!” brings John Smith to life, pitch and word-perfect. Talk about professional.
