Who was on Arran 20 years ago
Published: 01 February, 2008

Spotted on the Banner’s Twenty Years Ago page this week was a 16-year-old David Tennant who has discovered mega stardom playing Doctor Who in the BBC’s sci-fi programme.

On February 3 and 4, 1988, David and two other young actors were being filmed just south of Whiting Bay by STV.

The production was a short play for children called The Secret of Croftmore by James Graham for STV’s Dramarama series.

All the interior shots had already been taken in the studio and the exteriors were all shot on the Wednesday and Thursday on Arran.

David has always said he decided to become an actor after watching Doctor Who as a child.

This was at The Arran Banner.

I have been looking for this show, but have never found it. I would love to see him acting at the age of 16.

You can see 16 year-old David Tennant in the video clip at YouTube.
It's very short.(6 sec)

I found it! I knew there had to be something somewhere about this. It's too bad we can't find the whole show, but a clip is better than nothing. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. :-)
