BlogtorWho listens to the first episode of David Tennant’s new podcast series, David Tennant does a podcast with…Olivia Colman
It would be remiss of us not to warn listeners of a delicate disposition that before you listen to David Tennant does a podcast with…Olivia Colman you should be aware that it is fairly sweary and has a couple of rude bits. But we hope that doesn’t put you off because David Tennant does a podcast with…Olivia Colman is an hour of absolute loveliness.
This is the aural equivalent of putting your dressing gown on and sitting down in your favourite chair with a lovely cup of tea and a nice biscuit. It’s entirely welcome and completely comforting.
Olivia Colman is the perfect first guest for this series; she’s down-to-Earth as well as hilarious and disarmingly honest. DT and Colman, who are clearly good mates, while away an hour being very lovely about each other and discussing the need to not be an arsehole (always a good idea) and the importance of family.
Colman has brought along her dog Alfred, Lord Waggyson, on whom she attempts to play the ‘doggy bagpipes’. She has some brilliant stories about The Crown, Broadchurch, Murder on the Orient Express – which she took just so that she could work with her hero, Dame Judi Dench – and The Favourite.
David Tennant does a podcast with…Olivia Colman has come along at a time when the world around us seems to be a divisive and unpleasant place a lot of the time. Into that world, this little podcast is dropped and never has the friendliness, groundedness and normality of two people been so welcome.
We’re very glad that producer (and the boss!) Georgia Tennant convinced DT to embrace the modern world of podcasts and social media!
