We all know David Tennant from his time as the tenth Doctor on the long-running television series Doctor Who, but recently the actor took on a much different role – that of vampire hunter Peter Vincent in the 2011 remake of Fright Night (recently released on DVD and Blu-ray).
But his turn in Fright Night wasn’t his only foray into the world of vampires. Last year Tennant hosted “A Night with a Vampire” audio series for BBC Radio 4’s Book at Bedtime. Recently, the actor returned for “A Night with a Vampire 2,” where he read five vampire-themed stories, like Edith Wharton‘s Bewitched and Richard Matheson‘s Drink My Blood.
The audio is now online, so be sure to head over to Tennant News to listen to the five audio books read by David Tennant. Each runs about 14 minutes long and they’re all so worth listening to (you even get to here the Scottish actor doing a great American accent).
Last year marked the first time BBC 4 did the Book at Bedtime series which had Tennant reading books from the Victorian era. This year, Tennant returned with selections taken from 20th century literature.
Here’s a list of this year’s books:
– Bewitched by Edith Wharton
– Drink My Blood by Richard Matheson
– The Girl With The Hungry Eyes by Fritz Lieber
– A Lot Of Mince Pies by Robert Swindells
– The Lady Of The House Of Love by Angela Carter
