For David Tennant fans desperate to see his new Netflix series Marvel’s Jessica Jones the wait is nearly over…

The series is due on our screens, tablets and laptops before the end of the year and, to whet our appetites, producers have released a new picture of the former Time Lord looking menacing as mind-controlling villain Kilgarve, AKA ‘The Purple Man’.

David will be playing the nemesis of ex superhero Jessica Jones (Breaking Bad’s Krysten Ritter) in the new 13-part series. Jones hung up her cape after a horrific accident, but we reckon Kilgarve might be able to tempt her out of retirement!

“I grew up on Marvel Comics,” said David. “So it’s very exciting to be part of their ever-expanding entertainment empire. I love their movies and TV shows so I’m very pleased to be part of one.”

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is set to be released on Netflix on 20 November.
