Timothy Dalton and David Tennant bond on Dr. Who set
David Tennant said he and former James Bond actor Timothy Dalton showed their mutual respect by breaking into a singsong of each other’s theme tunes.
Dashing Dalton, who starred as 007 in films The Living Daylights and Licence To Kill, will play The Narrator in Doctor Who over Christmas, as David makes his final journey.
As CommanderBond.net readers will recall, news that Dalton would be making an appearance on the hugely popular show was first announced in May of this year.
Full details of Dalton’s character are being kept under wraps, but there has been speculation that he will be a “baddie”.
Praising Dalton’s down-to-earth attitude to the Radio Times, David said: ‘He was lovely.’
He continued: ‘He had the panache and the skill of a movie star, without any of the alarming eccentricities or peculiar demands.
‘At one point, he was singing the Doctor Who theme tune to me as I sang the James Bond theme tune to him!’
The grand finale, titled The End Of Time, will be shown in two parts and see David bow out as the 10th Doctor, before regenerating into actor Matt Smith.
The episodes will see the Doctor’s psychotic nemesis the Master, played by Life On Mars actor John Simm, re-born.
Bernard Cribbins, Catherine Tate and June Whitfield will also make appearances.
