My radio-alarm went off, as per usual, at 7am. And of course, as per usual, I chose to ignore the irritating noise of overly-perky DJs praising the Leeds festival and tried to go back to sleep. Note the word 'tried'.
Just as I was drifting off back to mysti-magic sleep land, I heard mention of Doctor Who, and forcing my sleep-addled brain to listen, I managed to discern that one of the DJs - I think her name was Sarah - saw Billie Piper and David Tennant hanging out together at the Leeds Festival.
"Oh." I hear you cry, "But that's old news!"
But it gets better. This 'Sarah' also claimed that when David bent forward, she caught a glimpse of his underwear - his red, lacy, women's-style underwear, that he just happened to be wearing under his jeans.
The radio advertisements began to role just I had finished screaming and my flatmate kicked open the bedroom door brandishing a cereal bowl as a weapon, clad only in her snoopy underwear. She was very annoyed when I explained to her that the reason I reacted thusly was that David Tennant wore girl-pants. I sobbed. I cried. Why oh why must I always be attracted to sexual deviants? I crawled under the duvet and decided that as this was not the best way to start the day, the only thing I could do was try and get back to sleep. My flatmate left me to it.
Just then, as I almost found sleep again, I heard those magic words - Doctor Who - and I sat up in bed, prepared for the next dramatic installment.
David Tennant was on the line. Oh, it was really him. It was his voice. He sounded a little indignant and sleep-deprived, but it was definitely him.
"I was NOT wearing women's underwear!"
Rejoice! Huzzah! Was that a choir of angels singing overhead?
"They were Calvin Kleins, I swear to you! I'm staring at them right now. Okay, granted they have a little red border around the top, but I can promise you they are neither lacy nor womanly. They are MAN PANTS."
Go David, go! What a way to wake up in the morning. And I'm really made up that David thought the whole thing was rather funny, as opposed to getting seriously angry.
Did anyone else hear this? It can't have been just me.
