The Politician's Husband Comes To Australia

The three part drama will be shown on BBC UKTV - broadcast date to be confirmed.

The Politician's Husband written by Paula Milne explores the consequences for a political marriage when the career of the wife stars to eclipse that of her husband. David Tennant plays MP Aiden Hoynes, who loses his cabinet position and the respect of his colleagues following a failed leadership bid. When his wife Freya (Emily Watson) is cynically offered a cabinet post to humiliate him he embarks on a campaign to get his revenge and restore his own fortunes. However, Freya is reluctant to step back now that she has had her own taste of power, while his former best friend Bruce Babbish (Ed Stoppard) attempts to manipulate the situation to his own advantage.
