catherine tate christmas special

If you don’t think “The Runaway Bride” is the best episode, you’re wrong because it’s literally The Doctor trying to get a bridezilla (of sorts) to her wedding on time while she bellows at him in fabulosity, he science nerds, and she threatens to sue for the first 15 minutes, then there’s “The Christmas Invasion” déjà vu, and then their new dream team kills spiders, gets rid of Donna’s jerk fiance , and enjoys some Tenrose feels that are considerably less painful than the previous episode (and somewhat healing) before the Doctor flies off. It’s hilarious.

PHOTOS - Festive Throwback Thursday: David Tennant & Catherine Tate In Nan’s Christmas Carol 

Today’s festive collection of photos comes from David Tennant’s appearance as a ghost in the 2009 Catherine Tate Show special Nan’s Christmas Carol.

Originally shown on BBC One on Christmas Day 2009, the show focused on just one of Catherine’s comic creations, foul mouthed pensioner Joannie Taylor, aka Nan.

The comic retelling of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol saw Joan casting her northern relatives out on the street on Christmas Eve after which she is visited by four ghosts overnight: her dead husband Jake (Dominic Coleman), the Ghost of Christmas Past (Ben Miller), the Ghost of Christmas Present (David Tennant) and the Ghost of Christmas Future (Roger Lloyd-Pack). David Tennant’s Ghost is a flamboyant, metrosexual blend of Russell Brand and Serge from Kasabian, wearing Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith, he’s “…up to the minute, constantly changing, ever evolving yet always on trend.” Needless to say, Nan is far from impressed.
