LONDON - "Doctor Who" star David Tennant is returning to the Royal Shakespeare Company this year to play a troubled king in "Richard II."

Tennant, who played the time-travelling hero in four seasons of the beloved, long-running BBC sci-fi series, starred in an acclaimed RSC production of "Hamlet" in 2008.

Artistic director Gregory Doran — who will direct "Richard II" — announced details Wednesday of the company's productions for late 2013. They include adaptations of Hilary Mantel's Booker Prize-winning historical novels "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies," which focus on King Henry VIII's enigmatic powerbroker, Thomas Cromwell.

"Richard II" opens in October at the company's base in Stratford-upon-Avon, central England, before a London run. The Mantel plays open in Stratford in December.

The season also includes "Wendy and Peter Pan," a new adaptation of J.M. Barrie's children's classic by playwright Ella Hickson.
