David Tennant To Star In Believe It! For Radio 4


David Tennant will be co starring in a new BBC Radio 4 comedy series, Believe It!, alongside Richard Wilson and Arabella Weir.
The four part series will begin on 9th May 2012 at 11.30-12.00pm

The BBC Media Centre issued the following press release:
Based on glimmers of truth, Believe It is the hilarious, bizarre, revealing and, most importantly, untrue celebrity radiography of Richard Wilson.
Celebrity autobiographies are everywhere. Richard Wilson has always said he'd never write one. Richard, however, narrates the series, weaving in and out of dramatised scenes from his fictional life story.
He plays a heavily exaggerated version of himself: a Scots actor and national treasure, unmarried, private, passionate about politics, theatre and Manchester United - all true.
He’s a confidant of the powerful and has survived childhood poverty, a drunken father, years of fruitless grind, too much success, monstrosity, addiction, charity work, secret work for governments and fierce rivalry with Sean Connery - all not true.
All the melodramatic staples of celebrity-autobiography are wonderfully undercut by Richard's deadpan delivery.
Throughout the series, Richard is supported by a small core cast including David Tennant, John Sessions, Lewis Macleod, Arabella Weir and Jane Slavin.
