LONDON — "Doctor Who" star David Tennant is returning to the Royal Shakespeare Company this year to play a troubled king in "Richard II."
Tennant, who played the time-traveling hero in four seasons of the beloved, long-running BBC sci-fi series, starred in an acclaimed RSC production of "Hamlet" in 2008.

Artistic director Gregory Doran – who will direct "Richard II" – announced details Wednesday of the company's productions for late 2013. They include adaptations of Hilary Mantel's Booker Prize-winning historical novels "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies," which focus on King Henry VIII's enigmatic powerbroker, Thomas Cromwell.
