Updates: Masterpiece Contemporary amongst other things! (via

  • Masterpiece have announced that David Tennant will be returning as host of Masterpiece Contemporary AND they will be reviewing his new drama Single Father for inclusion in a future schedule (not 2010 unfortunately).
  • New book about the history of the Dundee Rep has been released and it features memories of David's time at the Rep.
    The book, written by Linda Caston, charts the development of the theatre from 1939 to the present day, it has been released to mark the Rep's 70th birthday.
    Ms Caston tells The Courier:
    "I've had a lifelong interest in live theatre and have been attending Dundee Rep for over 35 years," she said.
    "I was aware that a comprehensive history had not previously been written, and thought it would make an interesting topic, combining my interests in local history and theatre."
    The book charts the theatre's rise from humble beginnings to become the current centre of Dundee's cultural life.
  • Copies are on sale priced £6 at the theatre's box office and at Waterstones, Commercial Street, Dundee.
