So the redoubtable Mr Tennant is now recording a musical for Radio 3
. I'm not sure whether I'm surprised or not. I remember him mentioning the idea back in October on the Graham Norton show - although it was a bit of a throwaway comment. Having said that though, I'm learning that with him, even the most throwaway of comments is likely to be a pretty good indicator that something's going to happen, because he never gives away much about future projects unless they're pretty much sewn up.
I admit, my first thoughts went something like this -
- Yay! Murray Gold!
- Kafka- The Musical??!
- Giant insects
- David... ? Oh well, he never can sit still, so I suppose he had to find something to fill the time before he has to start with the nappy changing.
I'm not sure whether to be surprised or not. I mean, he can obviously carry a tune and he's not tone deaf, but as to whether he can actually sing
? If, indeed, it's a singing role. It might not be, I suppose. And he's not stupid. He isn't going to do something like this and fall flat on his face, so either the skinny scottish bloke is even more talented than we all realised and singing is another one to cross off the "is there anything he can't
do?" list, or he's going to pull a sexy-Rexy and do a kind of on-pitch speaking thing.
I wonder what he'll be up to next week ? ;-)
