Hide stars husband and wife team David Tennant and Georgia Tennant, formerly known as Moffett.

The new series is described as “a Jekyll and Hyde tale by way of a conspiracy thriller”.

Des star David Tennant stars as a disgraced journalist.

He finds himself investigating a story that he believes could put his career back on track.

Of course, things don’t quite go to plan, though…

David’s character soon finds himself on the run from some sinister enemies who are desperate to silence him.

Hide – what else do we know?

According to the synopsis, while he’s on the run, he has “a serious accident which has an extraordinary side effect”.

He then realises there are monsters in the world…

Worst of all, he may be one of them.

David is no stranger to playing monsters.

The actor and father of five, 50, portrayed killer Dennis Nilsen in ITV1’s Des.

As reported by Deadline, David Tennant also acts as an executive producer on the series.

He said: “One of my earliest jobs was playing ‘first policeman’ in a BBC radio adaptation of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

“I read the book many years ago and I’ve been fascinated with this character for as long as I can remember.

“This story has followed me around for years, tapping on my shoulder slightly impatiently.”

He added: “When Julie Anne [Robinson] approached me to talk about re-imagining it for the 21st century, alongside her, the magnificent Fazekas and Butters and with the ever-brilliant Georgia Tennant, I didn’t let her finish the sentence.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be playing this character, telling this story and working with these people.”

Is Hide based on the Jekyll and Hyde book?

Robert Louis Stevenson wrote the book The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

The now famous tale has been adapted many times for film and TV – including a BBC adaptation starring James Nesbitt.

The original story follows the terrifying plight of Dr Jekyll, a well-respected scientist, who transforms into the evil Mr Hyde after an experiment.

The David Tennant and Georgia Tennant version Hide, is a new re-imagining of the classic.

Director and executive producer Julie Anne Robinson said of the project: “I am ecstatic to have this opportunity to work with such creative and talented individuals.

“The Jekyll and Hyde story is a classic, and it is so thrilling to be bringing a new and exciting iteration to the screen with such brilliant collaborators.”
