The 'Staged' star was told by a casting director she was not suitable to play the wife of her real-life husband David Tennant.
David Tennant is already winning praise for his portrayal of the serial killer in the mini-series, which has proved a ratings hit.
The former 'Doctor Who' star admits he and wife Georgia have let their guard down a bit more after being a celebrity couple for 10 years.

In no order at all, because these were all fabulous in their own right: the shocking, romantic, electrifying, joyous, hilarious or downright soppy favourite moments as seen on TV in 2016. Pull up a chair, there were a lot …
It’s the news all you Crystal Maze purists out there have been dreaming of. The show’s original presenter Richard O’Brien WILL be making an appearance when the show returns this month after all! Fans of the show were a teeny bit disappointed when the 74-year-old star was overlooked in favour of comedian Stephen Merchant for the upcoming celebrity reboot – and Channel 4 bosses were clearly listening to their moans.
One complaint that’s levelled at Marvel Studios - quite frequently, in fact - is the relative weaknesses of their villains. Essentially, there’s always been a pressing need for the heroes to function as developed characters that hasn’t exactly been true of the villains. Accordingly, then, it’s characters like Grant Ward or Wilson Fisk who are amongst the best of the Marvel villains – and a large part of that is down to screentime.
For all the show does to celebrate The Doctor as a figure of brilliance, himself often arrogantly stating that he is amazing and clever, no episode has ever shown how dangerous this view is and how quickly he can lose control than Russell T. Davis’s series four masterpiece Midnight. Midnight is at its heart a chamber piece, putting a group of disparate individuals on an inescapable bus tour across the surface of a deadly planet when there’s a sudden knocking from outside the small confines of the ship. You can have a bottle episode in space or a psychological exploration of fear but once you add in the greatest man in the Universe, it becomes something more dangerous.
It was just the Doctor and Rose, in the TARDIS. Which serves only to heighten the sheer cruelty of “Rose Tyler, -”, in the end – we know what he was going to say, but it’s just not fair that he didn’t get to say it. The moment - which you can watch here, if you’re interested - contains some of David Tennant and Billie Piper’s best acting together on Doctor Who.
For film and television fans, BAFTA Guru is a terrific source of talks and lectures from some of our most loved actors, directors and writers in the industry, which can range from 8 minutes to over an hour. Regularly though, they throw out a little 60 second challenge of quick fire questions, and this week, it was David Tennant’s turn. Watching TV as a tiny child made him want to become an actor - shows like Dr.Who, of course, while three words to sum up his job were “little bit silly”! The first thing he does when he comes off a long shoot is to get back on the school run (aww) and his fantasy dinner guests include Shakespeare (there’s a surprise) the beautiful Audrey Hepburn, and the Master of Suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock.
David Tennant had to throw away condoms when he was a teenager because they had gone out of date due to his lack of action.
Apologies to Tom Hiddleston’s bum, but it may have been eclipsed last night - and not by Cumberbatch or Dench, but HRH Prince Charles. The star quality of Essiedu was cemented as he followed the skit with the whole speech faultlessly.
The BBC is dedicating the best part of this weekend to the Bard, William Shakespeare - the 400th anniversary of his death on April 23, and also, as far as experts are concerned, his birth date 52 years earlier. Television and film are indebted to his plots and characters, influencing anything and everything from Poldark to Captain Mainwaring. Shakespeare Live from the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) sets the televisual delights in motion, with David Tennant and Catherine Tate hosting a live gala on Saturday from 8.30pm on BBC2.
Today marks ten years since David Tennant’s first series as the Doctor - it’s ten years of the Tenth Doctor. Click here to view the first part of this post, with five great Tenth Doctor moments from his first two series’.
Today marks ten years since David Tennant’s first series as the Doctor - it’s ten years of the Tenth Doctor. To celebrate, then, I’ve picked out my Top Ten Tennant… times. The very first time we saw the Tenth Doctor was at Christmas - and what a present it was.
Two of telly’s heavyweight stars are lined up to host a celebration of William Shakespeare’s life and works on BBC2 later this month.
