Are you a David Tennant fan?  I still think his best role ever was, of course, Dr. Who.  He was a perfect actor for that role. I’m not so fond of his real accent though and I think the writing in Broadchurch needed some help.  But I still like David Tennant and hope one of his shows receives a Freesat 2013 Award.
