David Tennant to star in Manchester

United plane crash drama

David Tennant is to star in a new BBC drama about Manchester United and a plane crash that killed eight of the team’s players in 1958

The drama is based on the team at the time, known as the Busby Babes, and has been created using first-hand interviews with the survivors and their families.

Tennant will star as coach Jimmy Murphy, alongside Jack O’Connell as Bobby Charlton and Sam Claflin as player Duncan Edwards.

Chris Chibnall, whose credits include Torchwood, has written the series.

Executive producer Simon Heath said: “Chris Chibnall has written an authentic and moving version of this heartbreaking story, which with the help of a great cast, we hope will be a fitting tribute to those who survived and those who lost their lives at Munich.”
