So, it may have taken David Tennant a few years post-Doctor Who to become a proper big name star, but he certainly seems to be everywhere these days now. (Not that I am complaining, let’s be clear.)

Tennant’s next project is something a bit different for the actor of late – a comedy. Tennant is set to play Walt in upcoming HBO limited series Camping. The eight-episode comedy will tell the story of a celebratory camping trip in honor of Walt’s 45th birthday, which quickly becomes a disaster. Watch its first trailer and see what you think!

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant has officially joined the cast of upcoming HBO limited comedy series Camping.

Tennant will play Walt, an “obedient” husband and loving father who serves as the linchin of his male social group. The story centers on a celebratory camping trip in honor of his 45th birthday, an event that was supposed to be a “delightful weekend back to nature,” but which turns into a disaster in short order.
