I am a great fan of BBC Radio 4 in general, so I am really pleased that this is quite a coup for them.
World Premiere of Murder in Samarkand by Sir David Hare
Based on the memoir by Craig Murray.
Saturday 20 February 2010 at 2.30pm BBC Radio 4 “The Saturday Play”.
David Tennant as Craig Murray
Jemima Rooper as Nadira
There is a large and truly impressive cast of some of the finest stage actors in Britain. Nadira herself plays Dilobar as well as two or three other small parts. I will link to a full cast list as soon as the BBC publish it.
I watched David Tennant’s Hamlet over Christmas and was very impressed, so I am delighted to have him as my alter ego. I have to confess to being a Dr Who fan ever since William Hartnell. I actually knitted myself a Tom Baker scarf!
Of course, David Tennant is not really good looking enough to play me, but it’ll be OK on radio.
