Tennant in Jinsy!

David Tennant preened and pranced his way though Monday’s episode of Sky Atlantic’s new series This is Jinsy as the show found its new home after a “failed” BBC pilot.

The gist of this surrealistic new comedy series is this; the sparsely populated island of Jinsy, governed by Arbiter Maven (played by co-writer/creator Justin Chubb) –  with soothsaying nasal hair – who along with Operative Sporall (played by his fellow co-writer/creator Chris Bran) as they watch over the 791 residence, using the a surveillance system of Tessellators, from the Great Tower in the parish of Veen.

Confused? Don’t worry. The show is unlike anything on TV at the moment; it’s part The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, part The League of Gentleman.

In the first episode of the series “Wedding Lottery”, Tennant plays Mr. Slightyman, an outrageously camp wedding planner with a penchant for plastic surgery who sadly only appears in one of the eight episodes helmed by Psychoville series director Matt Lipsey.

For more clips and an even greater overview of the craziness on show head over to The British Comedy Guide.

The first episode “Wedding Lottery” – featuring David Tennant – will be repeated on Sky Atlantic on Friday 23rd September at 23:30pm.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
