David Tennant Joins St Trinians II
Dr Who is about to turn nasty

06 July 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips  

submit to reddit

It's detention time for David Tennant as he goes from Time Lord to House Master for St Trinians II: The Legend Of Fritton's Gold.

As if one installment wasn't bad enough, the girls in small uniforms are back, and they're ready for a spot of gold-digging. Searching for the hidden treasure of the legendary Fritton's Gold, the film will see Tennant sizing up to the girls as their arch-nemesis, the mysterious misogynist Pomfrey, part of a woman-hating secret society called AD1.

Also joining the cast will be Girls Aloud 'bombshell' Sarah Harding and softly spoken Ashes To Ashes WPC Monserrat Lombard. Returning for another term are Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Gemma Arterton, Talulah Riley, Jodie Whittaker, Juno Temple, Tamsin Egerton, Celia Imrie and Fenella Woolgar.

The film begins principal photography today, for an eight week shoot at Ealing Studios.

What a waste of talent
Well, there goes one of Britian's finest. Its a shame - Hamlet should have really started his career in the film industry. If you look at his CV, it shows how good he is and the range he is capable of (from Hamlet and Takin' Over the Asylum to Casanova, hell, even Harry Potter 4) but St. Trinians II?! How could they even make a sequel, the first one was dire enough. More

RE: Caffeinejunkie
The first one was just wrong, russell brand drooling over school girls? Lets be fair here no hollywood film studios are gonna touch david tennent apart from cameos, so he may as well make this tripe. More

Brilliant idea! Career suicide so the psycho fangirls will leave him alone! More

so in agreement with Taz69 and Paul.mccluskey. seriously, why do this to your career and dignity after staring in work like Casanova and Doctor Who and the Obvious Great Hamlet. If he's going to do something decent with the big screen, do the adaptation of Hamlet. This is a sad day for Tennant and for me. As good as he is at doing comedy and humour he's not Rupert Everet and he can't pull this off with his head held high. More

Haha! Well I'm on an editing course at Ealing Studios this week, so I'll sure know to keep an eye out. Would love to say how do to Mr Tennent, and of course get the girls numbers...kinda love Jodie Whittaker! More

OH DEAR
The first one was dull as shite but that don't stop even the british film industry from bashing out a turd till it's flat. This is also the obvious downfall of Tennant, after sterling work as the Doctor, Casanova and Stephen Fry's directorial debut Pretty Young Things, he now does crap like this. Oh Dave: -(.. More

Advice to David
David, please keep your dignity and don't star in this! The idea just shouts "Awful!". Do something more challenging like adapting your version of Hamlet to the big screen. More

Not tjhat I think Dr Who is any good, but it was enough of a success to launch a decent career. And so he promptly wrecks it by signing onto this pap. Good work Dave! More
