Today’s Sitting/Reclining Tennants (from Rullsenberg): Midnight and Hamlet (?)

David Tennant in Hamlet

Today’s Sitting/Reclining Tennants come from Ms Rullsenberg again, who seems ever more intent to get the Sitting Tennant title two years in a row. They’re from the Doctor Who episode Midnight and from Hamlet and feature him in a reclining position – I’m sure that there’ll be much debate as to whether their degree of sittingness is entirely valid – and with his mouth open.

That means the scoreboard for the picture competition now stands as follows:

  1. Rullsenberg: 8
  2. Jaradel: 3
  3. Rosby: 2.5

Witty captions-wise, for topicality, Marie chose to get ill again, which is the kind of dedication to Sitting Tennnant that needs to be rewarded; a whole lot of people picked up on the strangely compelling blonde lift back on a certain popular meme I could mention; and a few people picked up on my disappearing Internet connection (it’s already back today, apparently, but I’m not at home to test it). Wittiest caption for picture 1 (although it spreads a bit onto other pictures) was Marie‘s; picture 2’s Ghost-related caption from Ms Rullsenberg entertained me the most; while Persephone was top of the picture 3 captioners.

  1. Marie: 24.5
  2. Toby: 19.5
  3. Jane Henry: 18.5
  4. Persephone: 15.5
  5. Rullsenberg: 13
  6. Rev/Views, Jaradel: 10
  7. Scott, Electric Dragon: 3
  8. Aaron: 2

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.
