Christmas comes early as David Tennant lands to film Nativity 2

It may have been Halloween, but the village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, near Oswestry, was decked out for Christmas as it welcomed time-traveller David Tennant.

It may have been Halloween, but the village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, near Oswestry, was decked out for Christmas as it welcomed time-traveller David Tennant.

But the actor was not reprising his role from Doctor Who. Instead, the star braved the wind and rain to film scenes for upcoming film Nativity 2.

Villagers also braved the conditions to catch a glimpse of the star who has a double starring role as twin teachers in the sequel to the 2009 hit comedy Nativity!

The film, written and directed by Debbie Isitt and produced by Nick Jones of Mirrorball Films, sees action in Coventry and Wales.

As well as yesterday’s scenes in Llanrhaeadr village, filming was due to take place today at Llanrhaeadr Waterfall, Lake Vyrnwy and Bala as part of a plot which sees pupils embarking on a school trip.
