Today’s Sitting Tennant (from Toby)

David Tennant

Today’s Sitting Tennant comes from Toby. Many thanks, Tobes! It’s from Doctor Who, I believe. Anyone want to guess the episode?

Here, though, Tennant challenges us. He asks us to re-examine what we think we know. What is sitting? What is lying? What, even, is slouching? Yet he provides no easy answers. It is left to us, the viewers, to decide for ourselves. That, ultimately, is the true value of this work.

Got a picture of David Tennant sitting, lying down or in some indeterminate state in between? Then leave a link to it below and if it’s judged suitable, it will appear in the “Sitting Tennant” gallery in due course.
