David Tennant Hosts The BBC Audio Drama Awards This Evening

David Tennant is due to be taking up compère duties again tonight for the second annual BBC Audio Drama Awards. David hosted the inaugural awards last year where he was also named Best Actor in an Audio Drama for his role in Kafka The Musical.The ceremony will be held in the Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House in London.

Two of David's audio projects are up for awards this year:

Believe It! -written by Jon Canter and produced by Clive Brill of Pacificus Productions. The comedy series starred Richard Wilson, David Tennant, Arabella Weir and John Sessions and purported to be based on Wilson's own life. The show is nominated for Best Scripted Comedy.

Kafka The Musical - written by Murray Gold and produced and directed by Jeremy Mortimer. David Tennant stars as Franz Kafka, who finds he has to play himself in a musical about his own life. The judges from the Society of Authors and the Writers' Guild of Great Britain said: "Kafka The Musical genuinely took the listener somewhere different, maybe somewhere that doesn't exist - riffing off Kafkaesque surrealism to create its own new brand of surreal radio". The drama is nominated for the Tinniswood Radio Drama Award 2012 for Best Radio Drama Script.
