Free tickets for Margate preview of new David Tennant drama, True Love

A special preview of the new David Tennant TV drama is being held at the Turner Contemporary art gallery in Margate.
True Love episode one and an introduction from the director Dominic Savage will be on Thursday, March 29, at Turner from 6.30-7.30pm.
Tickets are free, but booking is essential - call 01843 233020 or email to reserve a place.

The BBC One drama True Love is a serial made through improvisation. Five stories explore love in the modern day and each story featuring a star name. David Tennant, Billie Piper, Jane Horrocks, Ashley Walters and David Morrissey each appear in one episode.
The overlapping love stories are all set in Margate, and each looks at a different relationship and explores a different dilemma or situation.
Dominic Savage, who grew up in Margate, said: “Margate is such a fantastic place to make a film. It has such great locations which actually have a real romance about them and posses a unique atmosphere which is very suited to a series of love stories. Being my home town it also has a special and personal resonance for me. I’m looking forward to coming back.”

Watch an exclusive clip from The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists online now
The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists is setting sail for multiplexes soon, and we’ve got our hands on an exclusive clip!

The scene in question features Hugh Grant’s Pirate Captain being welcomed into the home of Charles Darwin (voiced by David Tennant).
The real star of the scene, though, is the ‘manpanzee’ himself. Apes have form when it comes to stealing scenes in movies, and Darwin’s well-trained butler is no exception.
The footage also serves as a good example of the atmospheric sets and insane attention-to-detail conjured up (in miniature) by the hardworking animators.
