David To Reprise Role Of Hamlet For BBC
 
David has signed up to reprise his role of Hamlet for BBC Two.
He will be joined by key cast members from the RSC production, including Patrick Stewart as Claudius.
BBC Two controller Janice Hadlow said the 180-minute screen production of Hamlet was "a wonderful opportunity to bring one of the great stage successes of last year to a wider audience".
Tickets for the stage performances, which opened in Stratford-Upon-Avon and later moved to London, sold out in hours.
After his debut appearance, the Guardian called Tennant the "best Hamlet in years".
In February his return to the stage as Hamlet was named the event of the year in the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers' Choice Awards.
 
The full press release from the RSC can be seen below:

The Royal Shakespeare Company's award-winning production of Hamlet, directed by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran, and with David Tennant in the title role, will premiere on BBC Two later this year.

Produced by Illuminations, the screen version of Shakespeare's great tragedy will retain the quality and tone of the critically acclaimed stage production but filming will take place on location. All key original members of the cast, including Patrick Stewart as Claudius, are confirmed to star in this special 180 minute production, alongside the same creative team.

RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd said; “We are very pleased that this RSC production will be seen by so many people when broadcast. As the show was sold out for its entire run, this is a really great opportunity for our work to be seen by so many who could not come to the theatre and see it on stage.”

Filming begins in June for broadcast later this year on BBC Two. Broadcasts in the US and Japan will follow in 2010. Illuminations previously worked with Doran and the RSC on the filmed version of Macbeth with Antony Sher and Harriet Walter. Chris Seager will be in post as Director of Photography; Robert Jones, who designed the stage production, will also design the film and, as on stage, the music is composed by Paul Englishby, the movement director is Mike Ashcroft and the fight director is Terry King.

John Wyver is the producer for Illuminations and Bethan Jones is Executive Producer for BBC Wales. The project was commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning and George Entwistle, Controller, BBC Knowledge Commissioning.

The director Gregory Doran said “Contrary to press reports at the time, the RSC always had plans to make a recording of this production but had the inevitable long journey in getting the cast together again and securing funding for this project. The Hamlet cast and the RSC are all really delighted that we now have the chance to share this show with audiences around the world, and I would like to thank all those involved in making this plan a reality at last”

Janice Hadlow, Controller BBC Two said “It's a wonderful opportunity to bring one of the great stage successes of last year to a wider audience.”

To support the new film of Hamlet, a rich online BBC site is being created in collaboration with the RSC. It will feature behind-the-scenes stills and footage; specially shot interviews with the actors talking about their characters and how they've approached the play; further interviews, with the director and other key backstage personnel; and a comprehensive range of links through to the full depth of BBC Learning's content on Shakespeare and RSC Education's content on Shakespeare in performance.

George Entwistle, Controller, BBC Knowledge Commissioning said "We hope we can use our experience in building compelling online sites to encourage a large TV audience to pursue their interest in Hamlet and Shakespeare as far as possible, off the back of a superb TV version of the play."

David will be a guest on the Christmas special of QI. It was recorded in London last night and will air on the BBC over the festive period.

David New Host Of Masterpiece Contemporary 

David Tennant is the new host of PBS'"Masterpiece Contemporary." He will make his debut on the long-running public TV anthology this autumn. 

"I'm honored to be hosting the series that introduced American audiences to programming such as Casanova and He Knew He Was Right," says David. "And it's a thrill to join the Masterpiece family of hosts: Mystery's Alan Cumming and Classic's Laura Linney."

"Masterpiece Contemporary" returns on the Public Broadcasting Service in October with "Endgame," a drama about the final days of apartheid in South Africa starring William Hurt and Jonny Lee Miller. It premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The "Masterpiece" series began as "Masterpiece Theatre" in 1971, and now also encompasses "Mystery!" — a public TV fixture since 1980.

Behind The Scenes Of Doctor Who With GM:TV

Things look set to get steamy in the desert landscape of an alien planet between the Doctor and his latest companion Lady Christina.
Michelle Ryan who plays Christina in Planet Of The Dead, says "There is a little spark between the Doctor and Christina. I think Christina feels like she’s met her equal — and the Doctor feels like he’s met his match with Christina."
Meanwhile David says of the Easter Special, which is to be shown tomorrow on BBC One and BBC HD at 18:45pm, "The story in the special is a bit bonkers. It's fast moving and very exciting and something bigger than we’ve managed before. The writers always come up with something different each time and I'm always amazed by the storylines".
The story starts with Michelle's character who is a thief trying to escape the police by boarding a London bus. David says:
"'London transport being what it is, it slips through a wormhole in time and space and ends up on a planet on the other side of the universe.
There's an alien race that are on the planet called the Tritovores and then there's also stuff going on back on Earth as well.
David says that the Easter Special is the last chance for the Tenth Doctor to have 'a romp' as the story starts to build up into the 'death' of his Doctor..
"'It's got some dark moments. There's a tiny little hint at the very end that it's all about to get a lot darker. Because obviously at the end of the year it's the end of the line for the Tenth Doctor. This is kind of a romp. This is the last time the Doctor gets to have fun, in a way."

David In Talks For Hamlet Movie
 
David has confirmed that he is in talks for a film version of Hamlet.
David told Absolute Radio's Christian O'Connell's Breakfast Show a movie version of Hamlet is a "possibility", adding: "It's being talked about and it would be good if we could make it work but it's quite complicated."
He went on: "The plan as I've heard it is that it would be quite a small-scale thing for the BBC. I think we would find a location and do it but it wouldn't be done like a full drama either, it would consciously portray its theatrical roots."
He also revealed that he was supposed to appear in the first series of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl with Billie Piper and said: "There was a plan to do that in the first year. The dates didn't work out so I couldn't do it but it involved some reins I believe. I was happy to be trussed up in any way that Billie saw fit!"

David's Final Doctor Who Script Moved Him To Tears
 
David told Jo Whiley on Radio 1 yesterday that he 'might have had a little cry' whilst reading his final Doctor Who script. He said:
"I might have had a little cry. They were brilliant scripts and very moving. It was quite a big deal really. I sort of turned the phone off and made sure I could read it straight through without too much interruption."
He also said that he doesn't know how he'll feel when his last day on set comes around in about six weeks time:
"I don't know. It'll be interesting. The last day, of course, isn't the last scenes as filming is now always out of schedule. So I don't know if I'll be sadder on the last day or filming the final scenes. That remains to be seen. It's weird because it's been four years. It 's been so all consuming and so life changing. It's been such a big thing."
You can listen to Jo Whiley via BBC iPlayer here.
David's interview is around 2 hours into the show.
