USA: David Tennant And Real History Of Sci-Fi In Entertainment Weekly's What To Watch

David Tennant will be one of the contributors to Part 3 of the BBC America documentary series The Real History Of Science Fiction. David has appeared briefly in both episodes aired so far but will be making a more significant appearance in the final two parts: Invasion (airing 3rd May) and Time (air date tbc).

David and The Real History Of Science Fiction feature in the Watch To Watch section in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly in the USA:

The Real History Of Science Fiction
Part 3: Invasion
BBC America, Saturday 3rd May 10pm/9c
What if aliens landed on Earth? Much of science fiction explores the moment of first contact – what will people do when the aliens land? From H. G. Wells’ pioneering The War of the Worlds toIndependence Day, Men in Black, and District 9, Invasion deals with our fears of alien invasions of earth. David Tennant explains the appeal of Doctor Who’s Daleks and Cybermen while John Carpenter and Chris Carter explore the rich appeal of the paranoia fuelled by hidden aliens withThe Thing and The X-Files. It also asks, what if the monsters were our own creation? With the aid of rarely seen animation tests, Phil Tippett takes us behind the scenes in the creation of the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park. But not all invasions are hostile. Peter Coyote and Richard Dreyfuss discuss the creation of Spielberg’s spellbinding classics E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. There is more than one kind of invasion.

The series is a joint production between BBC America and BBC Two and will air in the UK later this year.
