Catherine Tate Talks About David Tennant And Doctor Who At Return To The 11th Hour Today

Image
Catherine Tate has been talking about the times she spent playing Donna Noble alongside David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor in Doctor Who. She was speaking today at a Q&A session at the Starfury fan convention Return To The Eleventh Hour in Birmingham earlier today. Catherine joined the world of Doctor Who for the 2006 Christmas special, The Runaway Bride and returned for a full series in 2008.
Catherine told fans earlier in the day that David Tennant had been the one to persuade her to take part in today’s event.
Catherine admitted that she didn’t watch Doctor Who as a child but became interested when he learned that David Tennant and Russell T. Davies were involved with the show. She had no idea at the time how much of an impact that Doctor Who would have on her life – she just jumped at the chance of appearing with David.
Catherine says it was a no-brainer about appearing in the Doctor Who Christmas special. She didn't think that Russell T. Davies knew who she was. She couldn't…

The powerfully emotional drama, first aired in 2011, tells the story of the legendary Manchester United "Busby Babes" and the shocking Munich Air Disaster in 1958 which killed 23 people, including eight of the young players, and left many more injured, among them rising star Bobby Charlton and club manager Matt Busby.

Casanova Released On DVD In Germany On 15th July

Image
David Tennant's 2005 drama Casanova will be released on DVD in Germany on 15th July.
You can view a trailer for the DVD here. It is dubbed in German.

As an elderly librarian, Giacomo Casanova (played by the iconic Peter O'Toole), has a lot of exciting memories. A young servant girl, Edith (Rose Byrne), is treated to his lurid recollections and, before too long, she discovers that there's life in this old dog yet. It's enough to burst her bodice!
But this is nothing compared to the escapades of the young, hot and horny master of seduction. The youthful Casanova (cheekily portrayed by David Tennant) cuts a swathe through the women of Europe with his dashing good looks and irrepressible confidence.
But though the laydeez offer their full approval (usually expressed horizontally), the law is outraged by his antics. Made an outlaw for offences against government and church, Casanova leads the life of a fugitive.

David Tennant's Film Shoot Causes Travel Mayhem

Image
Production of David Tennant's new movie, What We Did On Our Holiday caused travel chaos yesterday as the filmmakers shot a sequence along the busy A82 in Dumbartonshire. Motorists travelling between Dumbarton and Balloch ground to a halt as they were forced to wait while David was filmed in a Toyota being towed by an HGV. Police motorcyclists ran a rolling road block as the action took up both lanes of the carriageway.
It's not the first time that David's presence has caused a traffic incident while filming. Last year, while he was shooting the ITV drama Broadchurch on location, a motorist was so preoccupied by the sight of him at the side of the road that they ran into the back of the car in front. David and co-star Olivia Colman said that no-one was hurt, although both drivers were too embarrassed to exchange insurance details and quickly drove away.
What We Did On Our Holiday is a co-production between BBC Films and Origin Pictures. David Tennant and Rosamund Pike star a…

BBC America Update Their Broadchurch Site

Image
BBC America have expanded their Broadchurch  minisite ahead of the drama's network premiere. The site now includes an extended trailer, character profiles, a photo gallery and an in-depth synopsis of episode one.

Broadchurch, starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Arthur Darvill, is an eight-part crime drama created by Chris Chibnall (Doctor Who, Torchwood). Following the death of a schoolboy in a sleepy seaside town in Dorset, mismatched police detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller are set to uncover his killer. But as the town comes under increasing media scrutiny, it becomes clear that the identity of the murderer is not the only secret that it is hiding.

Broadchurch was the show that had UK audiences gripped earlier this year. The show broke Twitter records and filled newspaper column inches, and even the betting shops got in on the act as books were opened on the killer's identity. The final episode was watched by 10.5m viewers.
