A Life In Time And Space - The Biography of David Tennant by Nigel Goodall
Out of the all of The Doctors on the show of Dr Who, this one has to the best-looking around... and a good lot of the population of the globe would agree with me. However, I wanted to know more about him than just him being The Doctor. David Tennant - the man - interested me. And so, when my older brother gave me this book for Christmas, I devoured it completely.
This actor has got to be one of the hardest working people I have ever read about. When he wasn't working on Dr Who, he was working on something else. This didn't leave much room for romance unfortunately; even though he does wish to settle down and have a family, David doesn't know when he'll find time for it amongst his work. He does have a supportive family; and even his father starred in one of the shows as an extra and totally enjoyed the experience.
In this book is plenty of current information of his acting history, photographs from Dr Who and other television shows David Tennant has starred in right up until 2007, as well as movies, books and audio-books he's done voiceovers for. In the back, it covers the awards he's won and have been nominated for as well. David Tennant is a well-rounded actor who has been working his craft from a young age. Even though he's under forty, he's brilliant and eager to work more and work hard for what he wants in life.
If you're looking for a well-written book about David Tennant, I wouldn't look past this one; it's unbiased and well-rounded. Nigel Goodall has written biographies for other famous people such as Christian Slater, Johnny Depp, The Rolling Stones, Cliff Richard (co-authored with Peter Lewry) and Demi Moore.
