David Tennant’s Dad Is Terminally Ill   Leave a comment

The reverend father of former Doctor Who star David Tennant has gone public with his terminal illness and voiced his support for a bill legalising the right to die.

The Scottish actor’s dad, 77-year-old Reverend Sandy MCDonald, is suffering from lung condition pulmonary fibrosis, and now lives in a hospice, where he is cared for.

Following this revelation, MCDonald has called on senior religious figures in the U.K. to support the Assisted Suicide Bill, which aims to allow those who are terminally ill decide their own fate.

He tells Scotland’s The Herald newspaper, “I have pulmonary fibrosis. It just gets worse. There is no cure. I have to address it and decide what to do. I have an advance directive which says ‘do not resuscitate.’ I do not want to be fed by something in my stomach.

“What I do want is the right to a peaceful end to my life. I think we have the wrong slant, the wrong emphasis. The phrase – assisted suicide – has criminal overtones in the minds of many people. We need to take seriously the provision of a peaceful end of life for all those who want it. Of course there would have to be safeguards, and that should be discussed.”

David Tennant’s departure nearly ended Doctor Who, reveals Steven Moffat   1 comment

The BBC believed the sci-fi series “wouldn’t succeed at all” without the tenth Doctor, according to the current showrunner, who cast Matt Smith as Tennant’s replacement

Doctor Who minus Matt Smith hardly bears thinking about but, according to showrunner Steven Moffat, his bow tie-wearing, fez-sporting Raggedy Man Doctor nearly didn’t happen…

Speaking yesterday at the Hay Literary Festival, Moffat revealed the BBC were ready to axe the long-running sci-fi series after Smith’s predecessor David Tennant and then-showrunner Russel T Davies announced their departure back in 2008.

“I think there were plans maybe to consider ending it,” said Moffat. “It was Russell T Davies saying, ‘You are not allowed to end it’ [that kept it going].”

He continued, “David owned that role in a spectacular way, gave it an all-new cheeky sexy performance and became a national treasure. So the idea that Doctor Who could go on at all in the absence of David was a huge question.

“I didn’t realise how many people thought it wouldn’t succeed at all. That was quite terrifying when I found out about it later.”

Moffat also told of his initial reluctance to cast a younger actor as Tennant’s replacement – a role that eventually went to then-26-year-old Matt Smith. “I said, ‘We are seeing too many young actors’. Then Matt Smith comes in, and this is what happens when you get casting right.

“The moment Matt started saying that dialogue, with his strange manners and his extraordinary face, he was a hot young guy but he also looked kind of like your barmy uncle. I said, ‘I really like him. What age is he?’ They said ’26’.”
