Talented people turn me on. What a woman looks like means nothing to me - I’m only looking at the twinkle of their soul!

Jane Austin’s “Mansfield Park” on BBC Radio 4 Extra

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austin’s classic “Mansfield Park,” BBC Radio 4 Extra aired in May 2014 the 2003 dramatisation of the novel.

Mansfield Park centres on Fanny Price, one of nine children born to a family in financial difficulties who is sent to be raised by her wealthy aunt and uncle. David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch play brothers Tom and Edmund, sons of Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, and cousins to Fanny. Of the two, Tom is the profligate gambler and character of ill-repute, but it is toward the gentle and kind Edmund that Fanny is drawn and with whom she forms a romantic attachment. Fanny struggles to be the social equal of her adoptive family and those in her circle, however, she is the moral centre of the story. (Links below the cut)

Harry Potter was fantastic - a great experience. I worked with Dan Radcliffe and met the other young stars. They’re great. They’re so fabulous. I think that if I was that age and I was the most famous teenager in the world, I’d just be messed up - and they’re so not. They really have their heads screwed on.

He’s been a dandy, an Edwardian cricketer and most famously wore a long scarf. Doctor Who’s togs change as he regenerates. And the latest Time Lord is kitted out in high fashion. Flamboyant. Garish. Bizarre. Seldom does Time Lord fashion make it to the High Street. Until now. When David Tennant takes over the role later this year, it will be in what he describes as ‘geek chic’.

It’s ghastly. Every time I do a play, I have a moment when I think I’ll never do it again. Genuinely, I’ll think it’s not worth it … it’s just agony. You’re often aware of how close you are to dying. You’re on stage and you’re composing the speech you’re about to give: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, terribly sorry, but I have to leave the stage now and throw up in my dressing room.’ Maybe I need that fear.

I think Shakespeare is one of those things that you get very excited about when you do it and when you love it and when you feel like you own that language.

»SHOWRUNNER NOTE

I don’t really want to go into a big long explanation as to why I’ve been absent, so let me sum it up real quick. Car crash a couple years ago (not the one a few months ago), found something wrong with my heart, needed a new one since, been on the transplant list, just got called in for my new one a week and a half ago (since you can’t ever tell when it’ll happen you just get called in randomly), and I got my new heart last Tuesday night and I tell ya what

So, I’m currently still at the hospital. And that’s your update. Hope to get things in the queue. Sorry for the absence and thanks to those who continued to follow or who started following and you better Watch Out, Tennant’s About.

I never got a handshake! I got a curt nod and ignored for the rest of the day. [sighs] Oh yeah, just another pretty girl ignoring me, that’s what I thought.
