Publisher's Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios is prominent stage and television actor David Tennant, who has narrated The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells for Audible Studios.   

The War of the Worlds depicts the arrival of an alien vessel on Horsell Common, in Woking.  

The initial genial interest in the Martians quickly turns to terror as they emerge with deadly heat rays and power beyond our control and comprehension. Their ruthless disregard for human life leaves humanity under threat of extinction. As the world crumbles, a lone man sets out across the desolate wasteland to find his wife.  

We spoke to David about his expansive career so far, how he got into acting, his audiobook experience and what his upcoming plans are.   

Listen to The War of the Worlds, part of H.G. Wells: The Science Fiction Collection, here.

Time for Tennant!

This was a wonderful interview with my favorite, the 10th Doctor, David Tennant. It covers the new Good Omens series, but is focused more on the new War of the Worlds audio drama. A quick and entertaining listen for fans.

A lively interview with David Tennant

David Tennant talks about acting, his new project, Good Omens, running a podcast, and assorted other minutia. Not terribly informative, but fun to listen to.

fun listen

As a die hard fan of David Tennant, I always appreciate the opportunity to hear a little about his perspectives and impressions around what he does. Truly one of the greatest actors of our time, his humble and human approach to the world around himself is both refreshing as well as interesting. The interviewer is also very good, asking questions which I myself am interested in knowing the answers to, but with enough variation as to cover a variety of topics. This has also sparked me on to wanting to explore more into subjects which I had originally discounted. Definitely a fun listen for an amazing man.

David Tennant possibly is my favorite narrator.

I love the way David Tennant gives life to characters. From grimy crime novels to children's fantasy series, his innate likability and astute sense of timing and rhythm make him a joy to listen to. And his interviews, both as interviewer and as interviewee, are always a delight. Kudos to Holly Newson for a lovely chat.

He's a very energetic person.

He seems so enthusiastic when he talks, very charismatic, I do love Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds CD's and the original film and kind of like the Tom CRUISE later film. I think its time to read the novel.

Interesting

Thanks! I also recommend Mr Tennant's reading of The War of the Worlds. He stated in the interview that it's up to other people to decide which of his performances is the finest, so here goes: Richard II with the RSC. :)
