Tennant was reportedly one of the actors in line for the role of Hannibal Lecter
on the NBC series before Mads Mikkelsen took the part, with Fuller later telling Digital Spy
that he is still keen to have the Broadchurch star take on another role. "It's a conversation that's been had a couple of times," Tennant recently told press including Digital Spy
"I would love to work with Brian on anything - I think he's a rare talent- so it would be lovely if something worked out. But there's no immediate plans."
"We had talked about David being a guest star in season two," showrunner Fuller told DS back in July 2014. "Once again, it's a schedule issue.
"He was filming the American Broadchurch for our dates in season two, and he's also a very busy man, so it's about finding that window.
"I love David Tennant, I think he's a wonderful talent and I've been dying to work with him for many years now, so one way or another it's going to happen."
David Tennant stars in Broadchurch
, which will return to ITV on Monday, January 5 at 9pm.
