Watch David Tennant In The Highway Rat Today


The Highway Rat starring David Tennant will air in this afternoon on BBC One. The enchanting half-hour animated special brings to life another magical world from the UK’s number one picture book duo, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the team behind The Gruffalo, Stick Man and Room On The Broom. The feature is created by the Oscar nominated producers Magic Light Pictures. 

The festive family highlight will be voiced by a stellar cast of British acting talent: joining David, who voices the wicked titular rodent, are Rob Brydon as the narrator, Nina Sosanya as the Duck, Tom Hollander as the Squirrel and Frances de le Tour as the Rabbit.

First published in 2011, The Highway Rat is about a ravenous rat who craves buns, biscuits and all sweet things. Tearing along the highway, he searches for sugary treats to steal, until his sweet tooth leads him to a sticky end. The whole family will enjoy this swashbuckling tale of bandits and biscuits!

Watch The Highway Rat on BBC One at 4.45pm on Christmas Day
