Today concludes our look at David Tennant's career during 2012 for the David Tennant Treat 4 Today this week. Today we are looking at his future projects which are 'in the can.'
(A few days ago we posted that we would add a report on David's career during 2012 today but, for a reason which will become obvious, we have had to postpone that until tomorrow.)
From April 2012 until the beginning of December, David Tennant went from one project to another project which will be shown on television in 2013. (He also worked on the Postman Pat movie as well as audio work, fan conventions and other work including another project for Virgin.)
David's first project was Spies Of Warsaw which he filmed in Poland. For this production David's character is 'a dashing spy with an eye for the ladies'! Spies Of Warsaw will be broadcast on 9th and 16th January in the UK, on 6th and 13th February in the US and in Poland it will start being aired on Friday 11th January (but will be dubbed into Polish and will be in 4 parts over consecutive weeks). Other countries such as France will also screen it but have not announced when yet.
Next, David started working almost immediately on The Politician's Husband. This three part drama was written by Paula Milne who wrote the brilliant The Politician's Wife.
David attended the read-through and a photo shoot for The Politician's Husband on Saturday 9th June and filming started on Monday 11th June 2012. It continued until Wednesday 25th July. No date has been announced yet for when this will be broadcast on the BBC.
Next David Tennant filmed Broadchurch for ITV. In this eight part drama David Tennant plays DI Alec Hardy, a newly promoted gritty detective who investigates crimes which other policeman have been unable to solve, The drama explores what happens to a small community when it suddenly becomes the focus of a major event and is subjected to the full glare of the media spotlight.
Filming started on Monday 13th August 2012 in Somerset, Dorset and the Clevedon area and finished in the early hours of Wednesday 5th December. The read-through for at least the first filming block was on Tuesday 7th August which was soon after David returned from the US for a trip to promote Spies Of Warsaw.
Some of David's fans have remarked that David Tennant wasn't on television much during 2012 but, with these three projects and The Escape Artist, plus his other future work, I think we can safely predict that 2013 will be a bumper year for David Tennant and his fans!
Happy New Year from all of us at DavidTennantOnTwitter.com!
