Friday’s Sitting Tennant: Ms Rullsenberg’s RTD/DT fight

Ms Rullsenberg's Sitting Tennant, featuring David Tennant and Russell T Davies

It’s caption day! Time to discover who’s submitted the best picture of David Tennant in repose of the week, and for all you’s lot to start coming up with witty captions for it.

Why, it’s Ms Rullsenberg who has triumphed this week, giving us this picture of all-out conflict between Russell T Davies and David Tennant, not that Davey T seems that threatened by Rusty.

That gives us the following leaderboard:

  1. Rullsenberg: 30.5
  2. Sister Chastity: 22.5
  3. Jaradel: 20.5
  4. Rosby: 2.5
  5. Persephone: 1

Start captioning, my friends.

Back at witty caption land, this is the first week of the new rules, in which top captioner gets 10 points. After much sitting around measuring my laughter output for each caption using a finely calibrated audio Carusometer, I finally decided that Toby’s second caption had what it took to hit the top.

That gives us the following lovely caption board:

  1. Toby: 131.5
  2. Marie: 112.5
  3. Rullsenberg: 92
  4. Jane Henry: 70.5
  5. Persephone: 45.5
  6. Jaradel: 38.5
  7. Electric Dragon: 31
  8. Rev/Views: 25
  9. Scott 2: 14
  10. Scott: 3
  11. Aaron: 2
  12. 1
  13. Stu_N: 1

Remember, you can submit as many captions as you like for today’s picture, with the wittiest getting 10 points next Friday.

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

Every photo displayed on Monday (one per person who sends one in) gets a point, with a bonus point if it’s from the latest DT production; the best pic in the stash each week will appear on Friday and get three points.

You can also enter the witty and amusing captions league table by commenting on Friday’s Sitting Tennant photo, the best caption getting 10 points.
