Doctor Who: 10 Reasons David Tennant Deserved His Special Recognition Award

12 February 2015 12:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

One of the big surprises at this year’s National Television Awards was the Special Recognition prize given to David Tennant, who was caught completely off-guard by glowing tributes from friends and family.

But hang on, isn’t the sprightliest of former Time Lords a bit young to be offered such a weighty accolade? Isn’t he just that good-looking bloke from Doctor Who and Broadchurch?

“Far from it!” is the answer that’s going to be shouted loud and clear in this article, which gives ten compelling, bite-size reasons by way of explanation. It’ll show how Mr Tennant’s contribution to the visual arts extends beyond mere “housewives favourite” status and stint as Dalek trumper-in-chief, examining his versatility, his passions and of course his sheer talent for making the nation sit up and take notice.

There’s a lot more to this chap than meets the eye »

EastEnders star Ben Hardy stayed coy at the National Television Awards last night (January 21) when quizzed about reports linking him to the next X-Men film.

Back in November, it was claimed that Hardy is being lined up to play a young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Speaking to reporters including Digital Spy backstage at the NTAs last night, Hardy was asked to confirm whether he will indeed be part of the next X-Men project.

He laughed: "Er, sorry? Oh well, that's the rumour. Nothing guaranteed though."

His on-screen father Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) joked: "If he is, I want tickets for the premiere!"

Hardy arrived on screen on EastEnders as the sixth actor to play Peter in June 2013. Details of how and »
