April 20, 2012 saw David in attendance at the gala premiere of Hay Fever, starring Dame Judy Dench - these two really should get into the theatre ON the stage together at some point!
This was David's first appearance in public with his full beard, which he grew for Recovery.

has swapped his clean-cut, pinstripe-suited geek chic look for a hairy new bohemian image moustache, beard and red
"It's my new look do you like it?" twinkled David, Meanwhile, he confided that he has not yet signed up for a second series as the Timelord though he would like to.
"I'd be very happy to do more but it's up to the BBC. It's not cut and dried, " he told us at the Masterclass benefit
event at London's Theatre Royal Haymarket, where he accompanied his friend Adam James, whose girlfriend, Olivia Darnley, is
in the play.
Clearly enjoying himself as the 10th Doctor, David added:
"I've been overwhelmed by the response and the Doctor Who fans have been great.
I don't mind the attention.
"The only problem is that all my actor friends keep wanting guest roles in the show but that's not down to me!" - The Express - April 27, 2006
The funniest thing about that last quote was that he went to the play with his friend Adam James, who did get a part in Planet of the Dead!
David has appeared in Hay Fever, back in 1992 in Edinburgh - he played the part of Simon Bliss - and also in the play was Louise Delemere!
