I am right now at a Holiday Inn in Raleigh, gearing up to go to the Wizard World Comic Con. No, /i wasn't there yesterday, because I had to drive in from the coast, but I am gearing up today and will post periodically (with a hopefully great internet connection) and upload photos from the evening.
I am thrilled because I will get to meet David Tennant, one of the most popular Doctors to take on the lead role in Doctor Who. But aside from being a science fiction celebrity, Mr.Tennant has some serious acting chops.
Following are my favorite David Tennant roles--hint, Dr. Who is only #3!
5. Peter Vincent in "Fright Night" -- for totally reinventing the character and doing it with humor and panache. Following is the link (I hope it works)
4. Alex in "Broadchurch"-- while theAmerican version of this didn't fair so well, the BBC version is absolutely wonderful. Tennant brings such depth to the character.
3. The Doctor in "Doctor Who."
How you could not love him? Not only did he take the role at a pivotal point in the series, but he broadened its audience, and I think was responsible for paving the way for a lot of new American fans....

Just playing one of the most iconic characters in all of literature. No pressure there...
Seeing Tennant as a man recovering from someone with a traumatic brain injury was so powerful it was almost
physically painful to watch...
