Birds, David Tennant-Style

You wanna see bird’s-eye-view shots of pelicans and flying rays at the Sea of Cortez, or snow geese flying past the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline, in some pretty spectacular nature video? Well, then, what if David Tennant was narrating it? Aha, thought so. Here you go:

Because nature documentaries are always just a little bit better when narrated by the Tenth Doctor.

These are clips from the BBC’s Earthflight, episode 1 of which aired last night on BBC One. It’s on iPlayer if you’re in the U.K. and missed it. Episodes 2 through 6 will be on Thursdays at 8p. No word on airings outside of the U.K. at this stage.

    I’ve bought all of the How to Train Your Dragon audiobooks in large part because of David Tennant’s narration. Seriously, his voice is liquid magic…but, you know, audible. Audible liquid magic.

    I would listen to David Tennant narrarate paint drying.

    Is it wrong that I expected the geese to be sucked into Sullenberger’s jet engines?

  5. Flying fish (well rays) and David Tennant…Fantastic!

    Listening to David Tennant narrate it, I could really get into watching birds fly… or grass grow… or whatever.
