A beaming David Tennant led the stars out for the premiere of Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger, as the first notable film of the festive season readied for its debut. Tennant has the distinction of playing two co-stars in the film. playing twin brothers, whilst a cast including Marc Wooten, Jessica Hynes, Pam Ferris, Ian McNeice and Joanna Page also appear. The film is a sequel to the 2009 film Nativity , which took a respectable $8.23 million in sales in its native UK Box Office.

The film is a light hearted comedy, perfect for a winter watch for all the family, and there was plenty of light hearted tomfoolery going on at the premiere in London last night too (November 13). At one point (as you can see below) Tennent's burly co-star Marc Wooten picked up the diminutive Scot and span him around in front of the cameras, the two dissolving into fits of giggles. Jessica Hynes was also in attendance - as were much of the cast and crew - and she too looked delighted to be there, albeit well wrapped up to cope with the typcially brisk British weather.

In Nativity 2, Tennant stars as a struggling school teacher living in the shadow of his family (including twin brother (a world famous composer) and finds himself entering his pupils into a 'Sing A Song For Christmas' competition at the behest of his classroom assistant Mr Poppy - and guess what, his brother is also competing. The film goes on general release in the UK on November 23.
