To Be Or Not To Be...In Shakespeare
Broadcast are today reporting on a new documentary that David is taking part in:
David Tennant is set to make a second Christmas Day appearance in a More 4 documentary celebrating Shakespeare's greatest heroes.
To Be Or Not To Be… In Shakespeare will interview actors about the challenge of taking on iconic Shakespearean roles. Tennant will join Ian McKellen, Diana Rigg, Anthony Sher and Simon Callow in the 60-minute documentary.

The programme forms part of a More 4 season dedicated to McKellen and will accompany its adaptation of Trevor Nunn's RSC production of King Lear, in which the actor reprises the title role.

The documentary is structured around the process of being in a Shakespeare play, from deciding to go for the role to the moment the last curtain falls, and features interviews with Britain's top classical acting talent.

Channel 4 commissioning editor, arts and performance Jan Younghusband ordered the film from Seneca Productions, the indie run by broadcaster Alain de Botton and Neil Crombie, who will direct. Emma Cahusac is the producer.

The season also includes broadcasts of McKellen's performance opposite Judi Dench in Hamlet in 1979 and as Othello in 1990.

More 4 controller Hamish Mykura is planning further seasons clustered around one major commission or acquisition following a recent range of programmes centred on the US election.
Time Out London
David is the cover star of this week's Time Out London magazine. They take a look back at his career so far as Hamlet opens at the Novello for previews next week. Mariah Gale, who plays Ophelia opposite David, is also interviewed in this issue.
