During his years as the Doctor, there were a few occasions where viewers can get to see his ?dark side? especially in the 2006 Christmas Special ?The Runaway Bride??where he was willing to kill the last remaining Racnoss in the whole universe.

In the series, he will play as the villain named Zebediah Kilgrave (as explained by empire, his name in the comics has 2 L?s but in the series he will go with a single L).

According to empire, Zebediah was a normal human being but after his exposure to an experimental nerve gas, his skin turned purple and gained some special abilities like Mind-Control?where he used it against Jessica Jones and controlled her for a while, this is the reason why she gave up her superhero role. Because of his skin color, other Marvel character calls him The Purple Man.

David Tennant is a great actor, not just in the BBC show Doctor Who but he was also part of the cast in the fourth book to movie adaptation, Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire.
