Column: Quality goes unnoticed in some underrated TV shows

..... David Tennant is a seriously underappreciated actor.
Having only seen him in a bit part of one of the "Harry Potter" movies, I didn't really get a chance to see his chops but anybody who can be that compelling in dialogue with a Dalek (if you don't know, it's basically a trash-can-alien) deserves a second look from directors and producers everywhere.
"Dr. Who" is still every bit as delightfully cheesy and over-the-top as it was when I watched it in syndication on WVIZ (Lorain/Cleveland PBS) as a boy. Tennant brings a new angle to the role, while preserving what was so lovable back in the day. .......
Gabriel McVey is so right about David's under-appreciation in the US. That's because his work isn't seen as much outside of the UK. I know the only way I've seen a lot of David's movies is on my computer. Thank goodness for YouTube and a number of other video sites. At least, in Britain, it seems he's one of the most noticed actors around.
