To much of the world's television viewing audience, David Tennant was the 10th and arguably most popular incarnation of England's iconic science fiction hero "Doctor Who" (BBC One 1963-1989, 2005- ), who took audiences by storm with the venerable science fiction television series' revival in 2005. But the Scottish actor's c.v. also included a lengthy, award-winning string of performances in classical and modern theater as well as numerous turns in British television dramas and comedies. But it was his vigorous and frequently amusing turn as the Doctor that not only restored much of the charm and appeal of the long-running series, which had been mothballed for nearly two decades prior to 2005, but also vaulted him to international fame. Unlike many of the other actors who played the Doctor during its five-decade run, Tennant was successful in finding substantive work outside of the show, including appearances in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (2005) and such highly praised small screen efforts as "Recovery" (BBC One 2007), "Broadchurch" (ITV 2013- ), and the superhero drama "Jessica Jones" (Netflix 2015- ).
