David Tennant Wins International Emmy Award for His Chilling Performance in 'Des'

David Tennant is celebrating this morning after winning an International Emmy Award for his performance in Des
Tennant took home the Best Performance by an Actor prize for his suitably chilling portrayal of Dennis Nilsen, a Scottish serial killer who murdered at least 12 young men in London in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The International Emmy adds to a previous accolade for Des that Tennant won earlier this year at the U.K.'s National Television Awards.
Based on the book Killing for Company by Nilsen's biographer Brian Masters, Des tells the story of how Nilsen was finally convicted for his crimes following an investigation by London police officer DCI Peter Jay (Daniel Mays). You can watch all three episodes now on AMC+.
Other winners at the International Emmy Awards included Hayley Squires, who collected the Best Performance by an Actress prize for her portrayal of a sex worker in the British dramedy series Adult Material. Cult French series Call My Agent! won the Comedy award.
Tennant is definitely booked and busy for the foreseeable future. Earlier this month he and Michael Sheen were pictured back on set for the new season of Good Omens. He has also lined up another real-life role in an upcoming ITV miniseries about poisoned former KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko.
