More David Tennant: Hamlet/United

Wow. I think he cries in everything. He can even cry and do Shakespeare ("O that this too too solid flesh would melt..."): 

This is brief, but moving. From "United". He plays the coach of the Manchester United football team that lost members in a 1958 plane crash. After visiting survivors and keeping it together in front of them, he finally breaks in private (from 57:47):



I know there was at least one "Doctor Who" in which he had a good crying scene, but not knowing much about the show, I don't know episode title(s).  Can anyone help?

Very nice! I have to say, he gets more handsome as he gets older, but he's always a good crier no matter what his age.

Excellent scenes!

As for Doctor Who, there are two episodes with some great crying of his. The first one is "The Family of Blood," part 2 of "Human Nature." One of the best two-part episodes of the series in my opinion, and a great crying scene.

There are several crying scenes in "The End of Time," another two-part episode at the end of season 4. All excellent.

Thank you Carrotcake!  Sadly, "End of Time" doesn't seem to be available on YouTube, but I watched "Human Nature/Family of Blood" and they were great.  I found this quote about "Family of Blood" (from "The Most Heartbreaking Doctor Who Moments", http://www.pajiba.com/seriously_random_lists/i-just-wanted-to-say-hello-the-most-heartbreaking-doctor-who-moments.php#.U0RkP_ldWSo):

Re: More David Tennant: Hamlet/United

I was able to get the United clip. There's something about a man hiding away somewhere out of the way to cry that just gets to me.
