Bad Penny Productions have released three new images from their upcoming comedy feature film, You, Me And Him, starring Lucy Punch, Faye Marsay and David Tennant. The movie is currently being offered to potential distributors at the Marché du Film at the Cannes Film Festival.
You, Me And Him is a witty romantic comedy set in
middle class England about two female lovers, one a career driven
lawyer (Lucy Punch) and the other a fun loving, pot smoking layabout (Faye
Marsay); and their annoying Casanova neighbour (David Tennant). While
neither woman ever wanted children, both end up pregnant, creating
conflicts that cause each to re-examine their outlook on life and the
relationship. You, Me And Him brings humour, controversy, tears
and surprises that will keep audiences in fits of laughter from the
opening credits to the final curtain. Other cast members include Gemma Jones, David Warner, Simon Bird, Sarah Parish, Sally Phillips and Adam Paul Harvey. Written and directed by Daisy Aitkens…

David played the Doctor between 2005 and Billie played Rose Tyler for two series from 2005-6, with a return for two episodes in 2008; both actors were back for the 2013 anniversary special, The Day Of The Doctor.
