Above are some images of David from the PBS Masterpiece Contemporary panel at TCA on 2nd August. David was there to discuss his new role as host of the channel, which will begin in October this year.
Masterpiece apparently hope that David will attract a younger audience, but will this theory work..
"I hope so," says David. "I know the stuff Masterpiece has got is the cream of quality drama from back home. Anything I can do to draw an audience to that, I'm more than happy to do."
The series returns on 25th October 2009 with "Endgame," a drama about the final days of apartheid in South Africa, starring William Hurt and Jonny Lee Miller.
