Ah! How sweet of David Tennant

Ball CakeIsn’t this factoid about Fear Her nice?

It was David Tennant’s birthday during the filming of this episode. His mother made him the cake with the edible ball bearings on as a treat and he insisted it was put into the episode itself.

Almost makes you forget the episode erred slightly towards the rubbish side, doesn’t it?
