David Tennant or John Barrowman - a MediumRob competition

Shoot. I'm knee deep in work and I only find out about this from lovely Chrissie who tips me the wink that Marie has forgotten how to spell Douglas Henshall's name.

Anyway: confronted by the question of 'David Tennant or John Barrowman? And why?' in the MediumRob competition (deadline 25th October 2009) I can only fall back on some trite thoughts:
  • because he made my heart skip and my stomach turn when I saw him on a billboard poster
  • because his physique is the kind that makes me smile inside
  • because he has great hair
  • because his native accent makes my mouth go dry and moves my womb
  • because... I can't even say how other parts of my body react without getting obscene
  • because when he smiles, honestly, perfectly, it is enough to dazzle my eyes
  • because when he meets fans he is nothing less than kind and frequently generous
  • because he seems to have a genuine affection and understanding of people's affection for him
  • because he can turn emotions on the edge of a sixpence, from joy to despair
  • because he knows just how to choke a line of dialogue to rip your heart out
  • because when he laughs you never feel it is anything less than real
  • because he believes in social justice and fairness
  • because he loves what he does and can't get enough of it
So far, this could, reasonably be applied to either of these lovely males. But....

.... I don't need life to be a song and a dance, a show-stopping spectacle, a confessional, heroic demonstration - as much as that excites me.

My choice? He's the Doctor, MY Doctor, and much more besides. John Barrowman is a perfect companion, sexual tease, and flirt. But my choice would be: David Tennant.

It always pays to pay attention to TMINE. But at least you found out about the competition and were able to confess your love before deadline.

I always pay attention, but I have scarcely been online at all recently so I seem to be perpetually behind in finding things out. *Sniff*!

I plead typo! (It's one of the "Forgotten Amendments".)

I could tell from the start where you were heading!
