Photos: Doctor Who’s David Tennant and Michelle Ryan Steam Up Dubai

Dubai has been in the news a lot lately, mostly because of its crappy economy. (Join the club.) But that city might see a tourism boost from all the Whovians that will flood its shores, inspired by the new Doctor Who Easter Special that was filmed in that small but extravagantly rich Arab capital. On-location photos of David Tennant and his co-star Michelle Ryan (Jekyll, Bionic Woman) have been released today, and they are posted here.

Tennant and Ryan look like a sizzling pair, both figuratively and literally. You have to wonder if Ms. Ryan ever passed out wearing that black jumpsuit and leather boots in Dubai’s 110+ heat.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
