David Tennant And Broadchurch Reach The Final Round Of The National Television Awards

David Tennant has reached the final stage of voting in the 2014 National Television Awards where he is shortlisted in the brand new Radio Times TV Detective category for his role as DI Alec Hardy in Broadchurch.

David finds himself with some stiff competition, with his Broadchurch colleague Olivia Colman also in the running, along with Sherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luther's Idris Elba, Bradley Walsh of Law & Order: UK and Suranne Jones for Scott & Bailey. Look out for David, Olivia and Benedict on the cover of the new Radio Times, out on Tuesday 7th January

The hugely acclaimed series Broadchurch is up for Best Drama, but faces up to Doctor Who which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013 by bringing back David Tennant and Billie Piper to the delight of fans everywhere. Also in the Drama category is Downton Abbey and Call The Midwife

David Tennant also makes it into the Best Documentary category. Penguins: Spy In The Huddle, the three part documentary from John Downer productions for which he provided a voiceover, finds itself deservedly up for the prize alongside Inside Death Row with Trevor McDonald, Paul O'Grady's Working Britain and Educating Yorkshire

Voting is open now and closes at midday on 22nd January 2014. The winners will be revealed at the NTA ceremony shown live from the O2 Arena on ITV from 7:30pm, Wednesday 22nd January 2014, hosted by Dermot O’Leary.
