"I love Firefly, I love Serenity. They're excellent". David Tennant shares his love for the 'Verse at Comic Con.

It's never not awesome to hear that someone you're a fan of is also a fan of something else you're a fan of. Especially when "something else" is Firefly. :)
We're everywhere!
Russell T Davis clearly agreeing with him there. I know RTD has said very nice things about Joss and Buffy.
From BBC interview:

Q: Buffy spawned a host of fantasy shows that appealed to young women as much as men. What else is there to learn from Buffy apart from Strong Female Roles Good?

RTD: Good Writing Good. That's the most important thing in that wonderful show. It showed the whole world, and an entire, sprawling industry, that writing monsters and demons and end-of-the-world isn't hack-work, it can challenge the best.

Joss Whedon raised the bar for every writer - not just genre/niche writers, but every single one of us. What a man! I shook his hand once, did you know?


I've shaken Joss's hand twice! I'm one up on RTD! (If only he didn't do so many Deus ex machina endings.)

Yeah, I had that same experience when reading Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind, which was one of the nicest fantasy reads I've had in, well, years. I then went online to see if he kept a blog or something similar, found out he did and that he was a big Whedon fan (as evdinced in this picture :)) and have been reading his blog (and eagerly awaiting the next two parts in his trilogy) ever since :).

Anyway, back on topic: David Tennant seems like a great guy. I'm very much going to miss him as The Doctor, because he brought great energy and a huge sense of fun to the role, which I really enjoyed.
Ah, that explains the coat :)
At the Torchwood panel, someone asked RTD if there would ever be a musical episode, and among the reasons for "no," he said something about how he could never top Joss' musical Buffy episode. Always nice to hear Joss get his props.

It's funny you should post this, zz9; I just used that exact quote in a paper I wrote last month. I always love reading it, because you can really see how much appreciation RTD has for Joss.

And add me in to the chorus of those who will miss Tennant at the end of his run. Though I am really looking forward to what Moffat will do with the series.
My sister just got into DW and I held back on telling her that DT is leaving until she finished it. To say she nearly killed me... *smirk* ;)
I applauded rather loudly at this and at the comments about the possibility of a Torchwood musical (both posted to our twitterfeed at the time).
The 'Dr Who' panel was definately a CC highlight for me (as was meeting RTD, he was just SO nice!)and the Browncoat question was great. I was one of the lucky ones that got to run down to the stage at the end of the panel and get a high five from David.
But the ultimate highlight- David Tennant kissing John Barrowman!

Ditto on all o' this! Although I didn't realize until I got to the end and did some outraged / excited googling that the book was only the first part in a trilogy and I'd have to wait and wait for the next parts. But such a fun read. I posted that same pic over on .org :).

ETA if you go to his blog and scroll down you can catch him in a Serenity t-shirt too. hee.

(GVH & catherine~ If you go to Pat's blog, there's a video interview there dated 7/10/2009 where he talks about his dream film cast, and if Joss wanted to direct and/or produce, he would just hand over this story to him no questions asked. It's a cute fan moment.)
Think DT's said this before (or it might just have been Buffy/Angel that time ?) but it's no surprise, he's clearly a fella of impeccable taste (seriously, don't even try to pecc it, you'll only embarrass yourself). I think i'll miss him in interview almost as much as i'll miss him as The Doctor, always comes across as a down-to-Earth, funny bloke.

I reckon a musical ep of 'Torchwood' could really work BTW, we know John Barrowman can sing and Eve Myles is Welsh so she obviously can too, stands to reason (as a title I propose "The Really Bitter Suite").
That was Beth'll who asked that question, I do believe. She was sitting right next to the mic.
Haha, "The Really Bitter Suite" :)!
