British Spy In Warsaw
Jacek Szczerba
24.05.12

The Spies Of Warsaw, the first co-production between the BBC and TVP is currently shooting. The British liked today’s Warsaw so much that it will not only portray its pre-war self but also Berlin, Paris and Prague. TVP will show the series in the autumn.

Fans Create Petition For David Tennant To Light The Olympic Flame

Image
A group of fans have gotten together to create a petition that they hope will see David Tennant light the Olympic Flame in character as the Tenth Doctor from the BBC Drama Doctor Who.
They say on their petition:
To the Olympics 2012 committee,
We wish for you to consider David Tennant as the official Lighter of the Olympic Flame. David portrays the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who, a programme which has been part of our national consciousness for almost half a century and of which it can be said, captures the heart of being British more than an other piece of popular culture on television today.
David, as the Doctor, was seen lighting the Flame in an episode called Fear Her which featured the 2012 Olympics. We feel it would be entirely appropriate for him to be given this honour for real.

How do you know if you’re with the love of your life?
David Tennant, Ashley Walters, Billie Piper, Jane Horrocks, and David Morrissey star in BBC1’s first ever improvised series, exploring five powerful and overlapping love stories set in the same town.
When it comes to love, there is never an easy "right answer" – telling the truth is complicated, and the conflict of desire and responsibility can be explosive.
These stories are life-affirming, visceral, provocative and compelling. Did the characters do the right thing in the end? What would you have done? The themes are universal, yet they provoke wildly different responses.
David Tennant will star in episode one of the series:Nick (David Tennant) is happily married; his wife and children are everything to him…
