A New Tennant

Days like this one don't come along too often.

On the one hand, as you may see from the photo, the former Dr Who and Casanova,  actor, David Tennant, is filming this afternoon at the council offices in Margate and so I have to tiptoe about the second floor, until he's finished perfecting his new TV series role of a Thanet District Council press officer.


And on the other hand, I had a call from the Studio agency today, asking if I could be Hollywood action man,  Brad Pitt's pilot for a film on Thursday. Why is a long story but unfortunately for me, it's Cabinet evening at TDC, which of course takes priority over everything else and I can't be sure of getting back to Margate in time.

So I guess that ruins any chances of a future date with Angelina Jolie either!

Simon is there an e-mail address to ask you a question without hi-jacking one of your articles on your blog? It is to do with Ramsgate Port & the live exports, as I understand it comes under your remit with the Council.

Tony

Although my portfolio is the environment, the port comes under Council Leader Bob Bayford and the animal exports policy lies with DEFRA.

Thanet simply provides a free port and as the fierce debate of late has shown, has no influence on the traffic which we are collectively opposed to.

How much are TDC getting paid for them to film there?

DrM. said...

Peter, what a bizarre comment!

Peter Checksfield said...

Not at all Simon. It seems that the filming there was disrupting normal service (that we pay for), so surely TDC were paid for the inconvenience? Or can anyone use the place for free? Perhaps I can use the place for a photoshoot?

DrM. said...

You can apply for one of your nude photoshoots and find out I suppose!

Peter Checksfield said...

OK, but don't expect to be in any of the photos Simon! ; )

As he's playing a TDC press officer does he get to ban bloggers from receiving press releases? Or is that a bit too far-fetched?

DrM. said...

He admitted that this was by far the best part of the job but then he is used to bloggers from the 5th dimension who don't take themselves so seriously!
