IRELAND: David Tennant’s True Crime Drama ‘Des’ Concludes On Virgin Media One Tonight

Image
ITV's gripping true crime drama Des, starring David Tennant as Scottish serial killer Dennis Nilsen, concludes on Virgin Media One at 10pm in Ireland tonight. Des focuses on one of the most infamous criminal cases in UK history, Dennis Nilsen. Known as the ‘kindly killer’, Nilsen (David Tennant) was a local civil servant who spent five years murdering boys and young men he met on the streets of Soho from 1978 to 1983. He would meet and befriend these men before offering them food or lodgings for the evening back at his North London flat. His victims were often homeless or living off grid, having slipped through the cracks of 1980s society and were therefore welcoming of this stranger’s apparent generosity. When he was finally caught on 9 February 1983, Nilsen had murdered a total of fifteen men over a period of five years, making him Britain’s most prolific serial killer of the time.  After his arrest, Nilsen was astonishing in his honesty: admitting outright to all fifteen murders…

AUSTRALIA: Staged ‘Ulysses’ Premieres On ABC COMEDY Tonight

Image
David Tennant's lockdown comedy series Staged continues in Australia tonight at 8.30pm on ABC COMEDY. It is also available to stream on ABC iView. The series stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen, playing fictional versions themselves, with the premise that the pair were due to star in a production of Six Characters in Search of an Author in the West End. The pandemic has put paid to that, but their director (Simon Evans - also playing himself) is determined not to let the opportunity pass him by. He knows how big a chance this is for him and turns his attention to cajoling his stars into rehearsing over the internet. All they need to do is read the first scene, but throughout the series they come up against a multitude of oppositional forces: distraction, boredom, home-schooling and their own egos.

Based on an original idea by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn - Staged is written and directed by Evans and is an Infinity Hill/GCB Films production originally made for a BBC One in the UK. …
