David Tennant To Star In New BBC Four Comedy Drama "There She Goes"

Image
The BBC has announced that David Tennant is to star in a new comedy drama for BBC Four.
There She Goes is about a severely learning disabled 9-year-old girl Rosie (Miley Locke), her dad Simon (David Tennant), mum Emily (Jessica Hynes) and brother Ben (Edan Hayhurst).

All the stories and characters are drawn from the real life experience of writer Shaun Pye, whose daughter was born in 2006 with an extremely rare and, to date, undiagnosed chromosomal disorder.

Each episode shines a light on day-to-day life with Rosie - unique experiences from simply trying to take her to the park to trying to explain that everyday isn’t her birthday.

A second timeline in 2006 shows the effect having a severely disabled child had on the family unit, how it threatened to disintegrate but ultimately brought them even closer.

The series will consist of five half hour episodes and will begin filming in July. It will be produced by Merman for BBC Four and the BBC Comedy Commissioning Editor is Alex Moody. It…

Platonov - What's going to become of us all?
Anna - You seem just a tiny bit …
