AUDIO CLIP: David Tennant Takes On A New Villainous Role For Absolute Radio Panto

Image
David Tennant has just called the Absolute Radio Breakfast Show this morning to find out his role in the show's Christmas Panto.

In homage to the newest big screen addition to the Star Wars franchise, this year's Panto is titled Star Clause: Snow Hope, with host Christian O'Connell himself as Han Solo, Richie Firth as Chewbacca and Faye Carruthers as Princess Fayea. Encouraged by David's performance as bad guy Kilgrave in the new Netflix series Marvel's Jessica Jones, Christian suggested to David that the ideal casting for him would be as the evil Darth Vader. Or should that be Darth Tennant? DaVader...?

Listen to David's call here

You can hear the Christmas Panto as it's performed live on the show from the Leicester Square Theatre on Friday 18th December from 6am.

Don't forget to listen in tomorrow to find out how you can win tickets to be there on the day! 




GERMANY: Broadchurch Season 2 Begins On 13th Street Tonight

Image
The second season of the award-winning ITV drama Broadchurch premieres on pay-TV channel 13th Street in Germany tonight. The eight-part series sees the return of David Tennant and Olivia Colman in the roles of Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller and will be shown across the next two weeks.

Where season 1 dealt with the investigation surrounding the murder of young Danny Latimer and the impact of the crime on his family and the wider community, the second season focuses on the trial of his killer. Running parallel to this is another investigation, led by Detective Alec Hardy, into a troubling and unsolved case from his past involving the abduction and murder of two young girls. And although the investigation into Danny's murder has turned her life completely upside-down, Ellie Miller joins Hardy to work on this mystery when he begs for her support.

A number of familiar faces from season 1 will also return, including Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill, while new additions inc…

REVIEW: Marvel's Jessica Jones Episode 3 - AKA It's Called Whiskey: "I Wasn't Strong Enough"

Image
In Episode 3 of Marvel’s Jessica Jones – AKA It’s Called Whiskey, Jessica and Kilgrave continue their dangerous game of cat and mouse, Jessica discovers she has another superpowered ally and Hope’s innocence is publically called into question by someone she thought was on her side.
As always, this review will include spoilers so please be cautious if you have not yet watched the episode.
Read our review for episode 1 here Read our review for episode 2 here

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is presented as a superhero adventure series but at its core it is a psychological drama that focuses on the nature of abuse; it just so happens that some of the protagonists have superpowers. To be abused in any situation – be it sexually, mentally, physically – is a terrifying and isolating experience and the effects can be exacerbated hugely if the victim is not taken seriously by those supposed to offer protection. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg has taken themes that are familiar motifs - coercion, uninvited se…

Image
David Tennant spoke to Peoples Choice on the purple carpet at the world premiere of Marvel's Jessica Jones in New York last week, The thirteen part series enjoyed a star studded launch event, attended by all key cast members ahead of its worldwide launch on Netflix last Friday.

David first considered the challenge of playing the villain. He stars as Kilgrave in Jessica Jones, a monstrous individual with little regard for the lives of others, and the titular Jessica's tormentor. 

"It's great to walk in many different alleys," he said. "If it's a good script, whether it's heroes or villains or anything else, that's the challenge and that's what you look forward to."

He was also asked to name his favourite episode of the season. David had not the completed episode at that point, but based on the script alone he nominated episode 9, AKA Sin Bin. 

"The story takes such a left turn and it's so brilliantly written," he explained.
