I like to wear unironed shirts and stare at the horizon....  
Broadchurch series two is finally airing here and once again I was hooked before the first ep had ended. And it's definitely not Dr Who, as David Tennant explains *g*:

And this is hilarious - Richard Dawkins reading out some correspondence received from religious fundamentalists. The "god bless" cracked me right up.

Current Mood: gigglygiggly

Just time to watch the David Tennant one, cos it's him, even though I've not watched Broadchurch yet (cos I missed the first series and I hate starting in the middle) but I will, cos this is brilliant, and I'd forgotten how much I like him. Cheers for the giggle!

You really have to watch this, and you do need to see S1 to understand what's going on in S2. I mainlined the first season pretty-well in one night; by the time I was up to the last ep I was exhausted and had to go to bed, but as soon as I got up the next morning I watched the last one. I was so hooked that when one episode wouldn't play properly I got online and D/L'd it just so I could keep watching! It's that compelling.

Is that really David Tennant? Because that's bloody hilarious!

Yes to both - he did this as a voiceover during an appearance on Absolute Radio. I've listened to it over and over and it doesn't fail to make me laugh.

Thanks so much for posting it, by the way. I've watched it a few times and it makes me laugh at different places each time!

You're welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

That Tennant VO is gold! :D

... as I've just had to explain to colleagues who wanted to know why I was laughing.

And you're right, the God Bless to Dawkins is priceless.

Your colleagues could do worse than watch both shows, and then at least they'd get the joke :-).

I love the way RD reads out the worst abuse with a little smile in place, as though he's an indulgent grandfather watching a three year old draw on the walls. Which is probably what he's thinking about the mentality of the letter writers, really.
