'What We Did On Our Holiday' Trailer Hints At Refreshing British Rom-Com [Trailer]


David Tennant Rosamund Pike

The latest trailer for the British romantic-comedy What We Did On Our Holiday, starring a frankly all-star cast of David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, Billy Connolly, Celia Imrie and Ben Miller, has rolled out online, hinting at a sort of Outnumbered-cum-Little-Miss-Sunshine quirky comedy that would have to really screw up its marketing to fail.

David Tennant Rosamund PikeDavid Tennant [L] and Rosamund Pike [L] in 'What We Did On Our Holiday'

Tennant and Pike play a couple and their young kids who head for the Scottish Highlands to celebrate their grandfathers birthday, all while trying to keep a pretty important secret from the rest of the family. However we soon learn that it's the children - played in steal-stealing form by Amelia Jones and Bobby Smalldridge - who are most likely to let the cat out of the bag.

What We Did On Our Holiday - Extended Trailer


When Doug (David Tennant) and his family travel to the Scottish Highlands for his father's (Billy Connolly) birthday party, hilarity ensues as they embark on what will no doubt be a holiday to remember. Along the way there will be plenty of time spent allowing the children to drive and verbally battle with their grandfather. That, and debate with their Uncle Gavin (Ben Miller) whether he is rich or not and how he is able to live in such a big house.

Heads Up, Clone Club! "Orphan Black" Renewed For Third Season


Tatiana Maslany David Tennant Olivia Colman

Orphan Black, aka one of the best shows on television at the moment, got renewed for a third season on Wednesday. It’s no surprise, either – the sci-fi series, which sees the excellent Tatiana Maslany play several different clones in each episode, is currently enjoying its biggest surge in popularity since its launch on BBC America.

Tatiana Maslany
The renewal means we'll see more of Tatiana Maslany's face next year. A lot more.

It will return for another ten-episode run (why are you so short, BBC shows?) in Spring 2015. So… Clone Club dance party anyone? If you don’t know what that means, you clearly have not seen enough of Orphan Black. Go back and fix that.

'What We Did On Our Summer Holiday' Has Kids Saying Funny Things [Trailer]


David Tennant Rosamund Pike Billy Connolly

David Tennant and Rosamund Pike star in the upcoming BBC film, 'What We Did On Our Summer Holiday' from the creators of 'Outnumbered'. And when we say 'Outnumbered' you should know that the film basically just relies on the formula of kids saying funny things because they don’t care about offending people.

What We Did On Our Summer HolidayFamily laughs are what 'What We Did On Our Summer Holiday' are all about

The family comedy drama sees Tenant and Pike as the parents of three outspoken sprogs. They drive up to Scotland - from London or Brighton, probably, considering the kids get Watford confused with the highlands – to visit Billy Connolly (granddad).

What We Did On Our Holiday Trailer


Three young children are about to learn what adulthood is really like when they take a summer trip to the Scottish Highlands with their parents Doug and Abi. There they are due to attend Doug's father Gordie's birthday party and there's plenty of fun to be had for the kids with building sandcastles, playing football, spending time with granddad and generally having an adventure with their distant family. However, Doug and Abi have other things on their mind which they are keen to keep well hidden from the folks. Unfortunately for them, it seems their children have extraordinary memories for things they've heard - especially when they're things they really shouldn't have - and it could be that the uncomfortable secret their parents are bearing will be revealed to everyone they hoped it wouldn't.

How The BBC Nearly Cancelled Doctor Who - Closest Shave In TV History?


David Tennant Matt Smith Peter Capaldi

As popular as Doctor Who is now, it’s impossible to imagine TV without it, but we were nearly forced to live that reality when, back in 2009 The BBC nearly chose to pull the plug on the legendary sci-fi drama.

The near miss came about when David Tennant exited the show. So effortlessly charismatic and popular was he, bosses were adamant that he couldn’t be replaced and set about bringing the show to its knees. "I think there were plans maybe to consider ending it," Steven Moffat admitted at the Hay Festival.

Is BBC Four's 'Hinterland' Better Than 'The Killing?'


David Tennant

BBC Four's new Welsh thriller series Hinterland began on Monday night (April 28, 2014), gripping audiences and critics with its Aberystwyth-noir style, moody dialogue and all the hallmarks of its famous predecessors, The Killing, The Bridge and Wallander.

Kit HarringtonKit Harrington in 'Hinterland'

"Hinterland doesn't feel over-researched on the police-procedural front either - making a virtue out of a necessity as, according to the show's co-writer, Ed Thomas, the Welsh language doesn't lend itself to police jargon," said Gerard Gilbert of The Independent.

Stephen Mangan David Tennant Jim Broadbent Rupert Grint

The well-loved British children's programme, Postman Pat, is being turned into a new movie that will bring the stop motion techniques employed in the series into the 21st century with 3D animation. The show, which followed the routine of Greendale's friendliest postman, Pat Clifton, and his "black and white cat" Jess, will receive a new incarnation this year with Postman Pat: The Movie.

'Postman Pat: The Movie' Will See The Iconic Postie Juggle His Day Job With New-Found Fame.

For any Briton who grew up in the eighties or nineties, the cherished Postman Pat holds many fond memories. Having first screened on BBC1 in 1981, the original programme ran for nine series and 141 episodes yet retained its universally-recognised English kitsch and iconic design. Ken Barrie originally voiced Pat but reportedly left the role when he became dissatisfied with the show's modern CGI makeover.

Pat Clifton is well-known in the village of Greendale for, not only his prompt and polite deliveries having been in the postal business for many years, but for frequently taking it upon himself to help out his friends and neighbours in other areas of their lives.

When he discovers that a televised talent competition is holding auditions in the town, he is encouraged to try out.

David Tennant Vince Gilligan Damian Lewis

Broadchurch, the Dorset-set crime drama starring David Tennant and Olivia Coleman, has been named the Best Television Show of 2013 in a recent poll by Radio Times. The popular ITV whodunit came top of the yearly poll despite facing stiff opposition from at home and abroad, in a list compiled by the top critics employed by the Radio Times.

Broadchurch has been roundly praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic

The spooky French drama The Returned was Broadchurch's closest competitor, with the Channel 4-aired series coming in second in the poll. The fly-on-the-wall documentary series Educating Yorkshire, which also airs on Channel 4, was behind in third, with two new British, BBC 2-aired series making up the rest of the top five; Top of the Lake placing fourth and the new James Cordon starrer The Wrong Mans fifth.

Doctor Who Producers Defy The Impossible For Christmas Special 'The Time Of The Doctor'


Doctor Who Steven Moffat Matt Smith David Tennant John Hurt Peter Capaldi

Following a baffling turn of events for the Doctor in the 50th anniversary episode of BBC's 'Doctor Who' entitled 'The Day Of The Doctor', producer Steven Moffat intends to drop another bombshell on Whovians this Christmas.

Matt Smith Day of the DoctorMatt Smith in 'The Day of the Doctor'

The long-running sci-fi show's Christmas Special has now been given a title: 'The Time of the Doctor'. Rather ambiguous as usual, but with recent developments being revealed by producers, its set our minds racing. 'The Day of the Doctor' saw the Matt Smith incarnation of the Doctor meet his predecessor David Tennant as well as John Hurt who became the 'forgotten' Doctor that neither incarnation ever spoke about. Together, however, they resolved the 21st Century Doctor's darkest regret and saved his planet Gallifrey from total destruction.

Doctor Who has landed itself in the Guinness World Record books after the show's fans tuned in to the special 50th anniversary edition of the show in their millions, with fans from almost 100 countries watching the Saturday (23 Nov.) night bonanza. The special, titled 'The Day of the Doctor,' aired on the BBC in the UK and averaged over 10 million viewers in its homeland, but that figure didn't reflect the huge amount of foreign viewers who tuned into the show too.

Matt Smith

The highly-anticipated episode, which starred current Time Lord Matt Smith alongside two previous Doctors in David Tennant and John Hurt, was simultaneously aired in 94 countries around the world so that all fans could all follow the story 'live.' The viewing figures gathered by the BBC and the Guinness World Records do not take into account the millions who are estimated to have tuned in via online streaming, which are predicted to have made the final figures even more impressive.

Richard II: Is David Tennant The Finest Actor In Britain?


David Tennant

David Tennant turned in one of the finest stage performances in decades with Hamlet five years ago, now he and Gregory Doran have joined forces again for a gripping account of Richard II at the Royal Shakespeare theatre, where it will play until transferring to the Barbican in November.

Richard II is the start of Gregory Doran's six-year plan to revitalize the famous Bard's works though he may have peaked earlier with this lucid performance. 

"Tennant delivers the plaintive, self-pitying arias with a scathing irony for the most part, flecked by tiny surrenders to abject panic - as though he were at once sufferer and observer of the tragic process whereby, when the royal persona shatters, it exposes the naked, insecure person underneath," said The Independent.

Missing 'Doctor Who' Episodes Found In Nigerian Archive


Doctor Who Matt Smith David Tennant Peter Capaldi

Nine missing Doctor Who episodes have been discovered in Nigeria. During the 1960s and 1970s the BBC destroyed, rather short-sightedly, many of the original transmission tapes of the cult sci-fi series. Fortunately, copies were often shipped out to foreign broadcasters and eleven of these episodes (9 missing ones) have been uncovered in the Nigerian city of Jos.

The episodes discovered originated from the reign of the second Doctor Peter Troughton, who appeared in the role from 1966-69. Troughton's assistant, played by Deborah Watling, has also expressed her joy in the discovery of the tapes as only one storyline from her time in the Tardis remains in the BBC archives.

David Tennant To Use American Accent As Star Of 'Broadchurch' Remake


David Tennant

The criminally underrated Scottish actor David Tennant will lead the American remake of Broadchurch, the ITV crime-drama series that he also starred in, according to TV Guide Magazine.

Tennant, probably best known for as the tenth doctor on Doctor Who, will play a character similar to Detective Alec Hardy on Fox's U.S. adaptation though instead of a gritty Scottish detective, he'll assume an American accent. He once again plays the male investigator in the case of a young boy found dead under a cliff face.
