David receives honorary acting degree
We all know and love David Tennant as the Doctor but now he’s a real life one too, which just goes to further prove the Tumblr theory that there literally is nothing he can’t do. But you probably knew that already, right?
As BBC News reports, the actor – who helmed the TARDIS from 2005 to 2010 – was invited back to his old drama school in Glasgow today where he was given an honorary drama doctorate to commemorate his acclaimed career which spans award-winning performances on both the stage and screen. He said he was left ”rather humbled” by the accolade.
“It’s overwhelming but lovely to be back,” he continued. ”I don’t think I would’ve survived without my time here. It was an essential three years of practicing in a safe environment.”
Meanwhile, Steven Moffat has also been recognised for his contributions to the world of TV and film. Doctor Who’s outgoing showrunner was the recipient of his own honorary degree from the University of the West of Scotland, who described him as “a great role model”. A ma-WHO-ssive congratulations from us to them! That’s Doctor David and Steven to you…
