David Tennant’s going to do a Star Wars Christmas radio panto

May The Force be BEHIND YOU, David


Not content with thrilling sci-fi fans as The Doctor and chilling sci-fi fans as Jessica Jones’ Kilgrave, David Tennant’s now set to make our Christmases in a Star Wars themed panto.


Yup, you heard that right. David Tennant’s doing the panto of sci-fi fans dreams, with The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show on Absolute Radio.

We begged. We pleaded. He said yes.The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show’s Star Wars themed Christmas panto will feature… David Tennant!Who should he play? Luke? Darth? Jar Jar Binks?

It’s not the first time he’s done a panto for the radio show.

Tennant previously starred in O’Connell’s Zombie Claus alongside EastEnders’ Shane Richie back in 2013.

And it’s not his first Star Wars role either: Tennant voiced architect droid Huyang in spin-off cartoon series The Clone Wars.

But we’re guessing he’ll be lending his dulcet tones to a far bigger character for Star Clause: Snow Hope.

Will it be Darth David? Or Master Tennant?


Wait, we must, to find out.
