David Tennant A Year In The Spotlight cover

David Tennant - A Year In The Spotlight is an in-depth biography which examines the media interest in the actor David Tennant. The book is 394 pages in length and all proceeds go to the cancer charity AICR which David Tennant supports. 2008 was a massive year for the actor David Tennant in terms of the press interest in him. He was the star of one of British television's leading dramas, Doctor Who, and he played theatre's most famous role, Hamlet, for the Royal Shakespeare Company which won excellent reviews from the critics. He also played in Love's Labour's Lost on stage, chose to announce that he was leaving Doctor Who live on national television, had to withdraw from Hamlet to have an operation days before the London press night but managed to return to the role for the final week of the run in half the usual recovery time. Add to that the numerous awards that he won throughout the year and barely a day went by that David's name was not mentioned in the British press.

It was a roller-coaster ride too for his fans; keeping up with all his news, watching Doctor Who episodes on television, listening to his radio and TV interviews and making trips to see him on stage in Stratford-Upon-Avon and London, as well as reading and posting on the masses of David Tennant and Doctor Who fan forums online.

This book seeks to look at an amazing year in the spotlight in the life of one quite humble actor through reports in the press, through comments by his friends and colleagues and through reactions by his fans.

As well as a section of all his theatre reviews, the book also covers:
All the awards both David Tennant and Doctor Who received during the year
An in-depth look at the filming of Doctor Who Series Four
The media interest in the Doctor Who Series Four Press Launch
A detailed account of the Hamlet rehearsal process

The headlines that he used a real skull on stage during Hamlet and the little known fact that he continued using it during the London run too
