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