Aw, haven't seen that in ages. It's sweet.

I covet that girl's dress.

Yeah, I thought it was really adorable, but also very cleverly done. A tip of my hat to cygnet for pointing this out to me.

So, Tennant is already back to small, anonymous roles after his Who tenure is over? And back in the UK after his American television series wasn't picked up.

Eccleston was wrong. And no one still has any idea who the fuck he is.

No, this was made in 2004. He's busy doing movie roles.

This is a really fun short; thanks for posting, I hadn't seen it in a while.

That film is from 2004, vhsiv.

I don't think Christopher Eccleston is that unknown, in the UK anyway. I've met loads of people who know who he is.

Yeah, sorry - should have added some chronological context. This came before he was cast as the Doctor.

Well obviously. Hasn't got a sonic screwdriver, has he?

Ecclestone is a fairly "big name" actor in the UK. He's had a long history in some of the best TV drama serials made in the UK.

Good directing, sure, but creepy stalker guy getting mega-snogs after breaking his stalkee's goldfish bowl and being creepy actually got me shouting at the screen in frustration at the end.

Interesting article. I wonder what he's specifically referring to as "wrong" with the way the show is made?

Twenty quid says he was pissed that the writers had too much control over the characters, because Time Lord knows I would have read a few of those lot the fucking riot act after reading a couple of those scripts.

As for no one knowing who he is… are you kidding?
