David Tennant - A Look Back At 2018



David Tennant had a very busy 2018, here we take a look back at some of the most memorable projects...


GOOD OMENS

Filming for Good  Omens, the the six-part TV adaptation of the comic apocalyptic novel by Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett, wrapped in the Spring of 2018.
David joined the cast and crew at NYCC in October to launch the trailer for the eagerly anticipated series, which will premiere on Amazon Prime in 2019.

The series has been written by Neil Gaiman and stars David Tennant as Crowley, 'Hell's most approachable demon', and Michael Sheen as his counterpart, the fussy angel and rare book dealer Aziraphale.
It is a co-production by the comedy team at BBC Studios, the BBC’s commercial production arm, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide for Amazon Prime Video and BBC Two.

MARVEL'S JESSICA JONES

March 2018 saw the launch of Season 2 of Marvel's Jessica Jones.
David's character Kilgrave appeared to be gone for good after the dramatic climax of the first season, but he's back.
The storyline surrounding Kilgrave's return was top secret, but if you haven't caught his unmissable cameo yet make sure you catch up over the holidays on Netflix who are streaming the season.

CAMPING

David headed stateside for his first US comedy series, Camping.
​He joined Jennifer Garner in the eight episode series from Girls duo Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner and based on the British series of the same name.

The show centres on Kathryn, played by Jennifer Garner.  David takes on the role of Walt, Kathryn's obedient husband and a loving father to their children, who is the reliable lynchpin of his male social group — but below all that reality lurks a subtle but growing discontent about what he's just signed up for.

The comedy kicks off on Walt's 45th birthday, which was supposed to be a delightful weekend back to nature, at least according to his obsessively organized and aggressively controlling wife, Kathryn. But when the camping trip gathers Kathryn's meek sister, her holier-than-thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited tagalong in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won't soon be forgotten.

The show will air in the UK in 2019 on Sky Atlantic.

THERE SHE GOES

Back in the UK  David starred in the critically acclaimed comedy drama, There She Goes, on BBC Four. The five part series, which co starred Jessica Hynes, is about a severely learning disabled 9-year-old girl Rosie , her dad Simon , mum Emily  and brother Ben.
All the stories and characters are drawn from the real life experience of writer Shaun Pye, whose daughter was born in 2006 with an extremely rare and, to date, undiagnosed chromosomal disorder.
Each episode shines a light on day-to-day life with Rosie - unique experiences from simply trying to take her to the park to trying to explain that everyday isn’t her birthday.
A second timeline in 2006 shows the effect having a severely disabled child had on the family unit, how it threatened to disintegrate but ultimately brought them even closer.
