Tennant 'tongue-tied' meeting old Doctor

Peter Davison has revealed that current Doctor Who star David Tennant was nervous around him when filming a special short story for the upcoming Children In Need.Davison, who played the role of the Fifth Doctor between 1981 and 1984, told Radio Times: "David Tennant and I very much got on and did the scene. I only found out afterwards that he was a fan of my Doctor, because he sent me a very nice text saying that he was at first a bit tongue-tied. I wasn't aware of that at all!"The scene, entitled 'Time Crash' and reportedly lasting seven minutes, was "enormous fun" to make, according to Davison. He added that he felt his cricket-inspired costume was initially "a little out of place" in the new Tardis set, but he "grew into it again after and hour or so".The Children In Need episode is schedule to air on Friday, November 16 on BBC One.
