UK: Drama To Repeat David Tennant's Casanova


The 2005 BBC drama Casanova starring David Tennant is to be repeated on the UK TV Drama channel later this month. The three part series, created by Russell T. Davies and directed by Sheree Folkson will air weekly from Monday 10th February 2014.

Casanova

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 ladies 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.

Casanova also stars Laura Fraser, Rupert Penry-Jones, Nina Sosanya, Shaun Parkes, Matt Lucas and Freddie Jones. 

It was his appearance in this role that led David Tennant to be offered the role of the Tenth Doctor by Russell T. Davies and Julie Gardner


Watch episode 1 of Casanova on Drama (Freeview Channel 20, Sky Channel 166, Virgin Channel 190) at 10pm on Monday 10th February
