It was previously reported that Simon Pegg would be starring in the John Landis film, ‘Burke and Hare’. Now, according to reports, David Tennant (Doctor Who) will be joining him as a fellow grave robber in the film Burke and Hare. At this time, it is not known who will play the role of Burke and who will play the role of Hare.
‘Burke and Hare’ is the story of William Burke and William Hare, Irish immigrants that robed graves to sell the bodies to Edinburgh Medical College for dissection in the early 1880s. Eventually the pair started to murder in order to get more bodies to sell.
