Today’s Sitting Tennants (from Rullsenberg, Sister Chastity and Jaradel): Butetown, Look Back in Anger and one of his parties

David Tennant gets lucky

Today’s Sitting Tennants come from Ms Rullsenberg, new arrival Sister Chastity and Jaradel. Ms Rullsenberg’s (who also provided us with these two alternates but they’re so similar I couldn’t count them as separate shots) comes from that ubiquitous video diary camera that DT seems to carry with him everywhere. He seems to have been scared by something, again, probably someone bringing in another cushion to match his existing nettle flax monstrosity.

For her first Sitting Tennant, Sister Chastity (everyone give her a big hello of welcome, please) has answered Marie’s call for lounging/louche Tennants and gone for something not in the least provocative at all, no doubt trying to stun some of the leading captioners into silence to give some of those at the rear a chance to catch up. Naughty, naughty, Sister Chastity, but I like your style.

Meanwhile, Jaradel seems intent on proving that DT isn’t as adverse to brunettes as previously thought (as if his [allegedly] shagging Nicola Bryant wasn’t enough), with this candid shot from one of his everyday, common or garden variety parties. I’m sure there’s a cat missing his cream somewhere, judging from that smile.

That means the scoreboard for the picture competition now stands as follows, with Jaradel getting an extra Obama-esque point for giving brunettes hope:

  1. Rullsenberg: 9
  2. Jaradel: 5
  3. Rosby: 2.5
  4. Sister Chastity: 1

Meanwhile, back at the witty caption competition – which got only slightly sidetracked into discussions of classical and pre-classical Greek representations of women, hair colour as character-defining in classics of English literature, Northern Irish prison history, coups d’êtat, my Great Blonde Elevator and the exact angle of incidence David Tennant’s back needs to make to the vertical for him to be considered sitting – we had surprisingly few actual captions, despite it once again being one of the most commented items on the blog.

Ms Rullsenberg, however, got three points for having the wittiest and a topical caption for picture 1, while Toby’s alternate caption for picture 2 gets him the double points this time. But Jane Henry’s frenzied captioning means she’s now just one point away from Toby (watch out Tobes!) and Jaradel’s musical interlude means she’s managed to pull away from Rev/Views while he’s moving house to take her to within striking distance of, ironically enough, the striking Persephone as well as Ms Rullsenberg.

  1. Marie: 26.5
  2. Toby: 23.5
  3. Jane Henry: 22.5
  4. Persephone: 15.5
  5. Rullsenberg: 14.5
  6. Jaradel: 12
  7. Rev/Views 10
  8. Scott, Electric Dragon: 3
  9. Aaron: 2

BTW, the fame of Sitting Tennant has now spread and we have new fans over at Flickfilosopher (which meant Sitting Tennant actually made it onto Google News this week) and the not at all scarily titled David Tennant’s Gutter Gang forums. It’s even warranted an article over on Kasterborus. Hello everyone and welcome to the marvellous world of David Tennant not standing up. Feel free to come and join the fun.

As always, captions and new submissions for the gallery, please. Remember, you can submit as many (witty) captions as you like for each and every picture, with topical captions (and pictures of David Tennant in current productions) getting extra marks. The wittiest caption for each picture will get double points. And there’s a bonus point for using Gary Numan lyrics appropriately.

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. You can also enter the witting and amusing captions league table by commenting on existing photos in the gallery.
