Image
Broadchurch has been nominated in C21’s International Drama Awards, which are voted for by the world’s leading scripted commissioners and buyers.

It is short listed in the Best Returning Drama Series category and will face off against the likes of Humans, Top Of The Lake: China Girl and Ordinary Lies.

Author Julia Donaldson Talks David Tennant And The Highway Rat

Image
This Christmas' family fun spectacular comes in the form of The Highway Rat, the classic Julia Donaldson tale, starring David Tennant. The half hour adaptation will see David bring the ravenous rat's adventures to life and Julia has been talking at a screening of the programme about his take on her beloved character.

David will play the role with his native scottish accent and it's something that Julia approves of as that's the accent The Highway Rat always uses when she and her husband act out the tale at various public readings.
"When my husband Malcolm and I act The Highway Rat, because we lived in Glasgow for 25 years Malcolm always does a very Glaswegian Rat,” says Julia. “Maybe that’s why they cast David Tennant."

A new still from the story has also been released, showing the naughty rat robbing a poor Squirrel of his nuts!

"These nuts are probably rotten. These nuts are hard as can be, But I am the rat of the Highway, and these nuts belong to me!…

Olivia Colman Would Love David Tennant To Join Her In Netflix's The Crown

Image
Olivia Colman has revealed to RadioTimes.com that she would love her Broadchurch co star David Tennant to join her on her new series, The Crown.

Olivia was announced to be taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth II from Claire Foy last month and she will play the monarch for series 3 and series 4 of the hit Netflix drama.

The role of Prince Phillip is yet to be announced for the next two series and David Tennant is currently leading in a poll created by Radio Times to find out who viewers would like to see take on the part.
When told about David's lead in the poll Olivia said "Oh can you imagine, how much fun! We’d never get anything done, we’d just chat all day. That would be heaven!"

It would certainly be ironic of David did land the role of the Prince as the young Phillip is currently being played by Matt Smith, David's successor in Doctor Who.

Series 2 Of The Crown starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith will premiere on Netflix on 8th December 2017.
