Series / Casanova

In 2005, the BBC made a three-part miniseries about the life of one Giacomo Girolamo Casanova starring David Tennant. The series is notable for sticking fairly closely to Casanova's actual memoirs.

The series primarily uses flashbacks to tell the story; Casanova's youth in Venice, France and England is actually being written by the older Casanova. The younger Casanova is played by David Tennant in his Breakout Role, while the older Casanova is played by Peter O'Toole.

The series was written by Russell T Davies, of Doctor Who fame. Davies was so impressed by Tennant's performance that he cast him as the Tenth Doctor.
