Today is indeed International Kilt Day – at least, so says kiltday.com, and who am I to argue when it means that I thus have a totally reasonable excuse to satisfy Beppie’s desire to see David Tennant and John Barrowman in kilts? Alas, I can’t find a shot of them together in kilts, which is probably just as well for the sake of fangirl equilibrium around the globe.
But wait! There’s more!
These are not the only Men from the TARDIS to don the kilt! ((no Christopher Eccleston kilted that I could find ~Alas)) ETA: Here Tom Baker dons the Great Kilt rather than one of these convenient modern jobs.
Perhaps it’s something about space travel?
Ewan MacGregor (Obi Wan Kenobi, Star Wars Eps 1,2,3) dons a kilt at the drop of a hat:
Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard, Star Trek: TNG) looked just dandy in Ancient Roman tunic in I Claudius (can’t find a shot online, might have to resort to a screenshot from my DVD)
Sean Connery, who has starred in more than one low budget sci-fi flick in his day:
Oh, surely I have a sci-fi excuse for Alan Rickman? oh yes, Galaxy Quest!
P.S. David Tennant also looks FINE in breeches
