Goblet of Who

Friday is probably the biggest day of David Tennant's career -- he's in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire playing Barty Crouch Jr, and then he also appears in his first starring scene as the Doctor as part of the Children In Need Appeal and perhaps more significantly, the scene is going to be made available online as well, making it accessible around the world.

It's my opinion that worldwide Doctor Who fans should definitely donate to the cause, as it looks like they will take credit cards. I don't know if it'll register as a connection to Doctor Who or not, but at the very least it's good karma, especially for those of us in the largest English-speaking market in the world without any proper distribution of the new series.

David Tennant also turned on the lights of Cardiff, and apparently enjoying every minute of it. I don't recall Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper making any real public appearances together, so I'm pleased to see Tennant and Piper make appearances. While Eccleston is a fantastic actor, and made a fantastic Doctor, my impression is that Tennant is a lot more instinctively Doctorish; in much the same way that Tom Baker was (and really still is, if you listen to him on something like Little Britain).
