Move over, Graham Norton (perish the thought!): Doctor Who star David Tennant has turned chat show host, with his very own podcast.

And if that wasn’t exciting enough, among the Tenth Doctor’s very first guests will be Oscar hopeful Olivia Colman, followed by current Doctor Jodie Whittaker, who stepped into the role after co-starring with them both in Broadchurch.

The news was announced in a short teaser yesterday (January 23), in which David introduced the “pretty low-concept” show with a cheery “Hello, Podcast Land!”

The imaginatively titled show David Tennant Does a Podcast will see him chatting with celebrity pals like Olivia and Jodie every week. Or, as David rather charmingly puts it, “Me and some cool people, talking and stuff on a podcast.”

Sure enough, those “cool people” currently reads like a Who’s Who of Anglo faves, including David’s Good Omens co-stars Michael Sheen and Jon HammWhoopi Goldberg, his Jessica Jones adversary Krysten Ritter, and, oh, just some chap called Sir Ian McKellen.

Sign. Us. Up. The first episode with Olivia Colman will be released this Monday 28 January, with new episodes every Monday on Acast, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all good podcast providers.
