On those rare occasions when current and past stars of Doctor Who filmed episodes together the air has sometimes turned a tad chilly. But “Tenth Doctor” David Tennant says there were no such problems when, earlier this year, he and his TARDIS successor Matt Smith shot this November’s special 50th anniversary show.
'Broadchurch': Creator Chris Chibnall and star David Tennant talk about their crime drama phenomenon
When the crime drama Broadchurch was screened on the U.K.’s ITV network this spring, it swiftly became a bona fide national obsession as viewers tried to figure out who killed an 11-year-old boy named Danny Latimer in the titular seaside town. Needless to say, Broadchurch creator-writer Chris Chibnall was thrilled by this development — even if it did make getting home more difficult during the show’s eight-episode run. “One night I went out to a screening of The Shining at an old hotel,” says Chibnall, who lives in Bridport, where many of the show’s coastal exteriors were filmed. “I was walking back in the dark and I rang a taxi firm and said, ‘Could you come and pick me and my wife up?’ The guy on the other end went, ‘No problem at all, Chris. Just tell me one thing: Who did it?’”
Few TV shows have gripped the residents of the U.K — including my very own mother — with the ferocity of the crime drama Broadchurch, which was broadcast to massive ratings and Twitter-melting interest earlier this year. Created by regular Doctor Who scribe Chris Chibnall, the show tracks a pair of cops, played by David Tennant and Olivia Colman, as they attempt to solve the murder of an 11-year-old boy and, along the way, uncover a multitude of sins in the titular seaside town. Part-Twin Peaks, part-Murder One, and partly a rather doomed attempt to hide Tennant’s famously handsome visage behind a scruffy beard, the show debuts on BBC America, August 7.

The Doctor is learning the ways of the Force. Actually, he’ll be teaching the ways of the Force to a group of Jedi younglings in Saturday’s episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. David Tennant will voice Huyang, an ancient droid who specializes in the construction of lightsabers. “When I heard the Doctor himself, David Tennant, was a fan of Star Wars I knew I had to find a way to get in contact with him to see if he would perform on Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” said Dave Filoni, the cartoon’s supervising director. “I thought David was perfect for the part and he did not disappoint. He delivered a performance which impressed even the Master himself, George Lucas.”
