  • Shakespeare Uncovered
David Tennant was one of the hosts for the documentary Shakespeare Uncovered which is part of the BBC Shakespeare Unlocked season.

Alongside interviews with Simon Russell Beale and Ben Whishaw, he looked at why the play is often regarded as Shakespeare's finest work. He also explained why he believes its popularity has endured to the present day.

  • Nativity 2
In London on Tuesday (17 July) there was a preview screening of David Tennant's movie Nativity 2. Currently there appears to be some doubt regarding the name of the movie, as some industry websites are calling it Nativity Two: The Second Coming (which was the working title while it was being filmed) but other industry websites are calling it Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger
