If you’ve missed seeing David Tennant and Catherine Tate star opposite each other since Donna Noble and the Tenth Doctor left our screens, you’re in luck. The pair are teaming back up for a new series called Americons.
Americons is said to be in the advanced stages of development for Sky One. It will follow Tennant and Tate as they move to the United States. No synopsis or further information on the series was provided at the time of announcement.
This won’t be the first time the pair have reunited since their Doctor Who days. In 2011, both Tennant and Tate starred in a stage adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing at the Wyndham Theatre, London. More recently, they both voiced characters in Disney’s reboot of DuckTales. Tennant voices Scrooge McDuck, with Tate playing the villainous Magica De Spell.
Bad Wolf’s next series to debut will an adaptation of Deborah Harkness’ A Discovery of Witches. The series was commissioned by Sky One, and is slated to premiere in late 2018. There is currently no news on when either Americons nor His Dark Materials might debut. Logan star Dafne Keen will play Lyra in the Philip Pullman adaptation, with further casting announcements expected soon.
