Broadchurch has been nominated in C21’s International Drama Awards, which are voted for by the world’s leading scripted commissioners and buyers.

It is short listed in the Best Returning Drama Series category and will face off against the likes of Humans, Top Of The Lake: China Girl and Ordinary Lies.

Author Julia Donaldson Talks David Tennant And The Highway Rat

This Christmas' family fun spectacular comes in the form of The Highway Rat, the classic Julia Donaldson tale, starring David Tennant. The half hour adaptation will see David bring the ravenous rat's adventures to life and Julia has been talking at a screening of the programme about his take on her beloved character.

David will play the role with his native scottish accent and it's something that Julia approves of as that's the accent The Highway Rat always uses when she and her husband act out the tale at various public readings.
"When my husband Malcolm and I act The Highway Rat, because we lived in Glasgow for 25 years Malcolm always does a very Glaswegian Rat,” says Julia. “Maybe that’s why they cast David Tennant."

A new still from the story has also been released, showing the naughty rat robbing a poor Squirrel of his nuts!

"These nuts are probably rotten. These nuts are hard as can be, But I am the rat of the Highway, and these nuts belong to me!…
