Watch David Tennant In Learners On The Drama Channel In The UK

UK viewers have a chance to watch a repeat of the 2007 romantic comedy Learners starring David Tennant, Jessica Hynes, Sarah Hadland and Shaun Dingwall. The drama was written by Jessica Hynes who knew that David would be perfect as geeky driving instructor Chris after she guest starred with him in the Doctor Who two-parter Human Nature / The Family Of Blood.

This warm, bitter–sweet comedy drama, follows the trials and tribulations of a group of learner drivers.
Bev (Jessica Hynes) is a downtrodden wife who's failed her driving test eight times. She's desperate to pass yet frustrated at her husband Ian's (Shaun Dingwall) impatient approach when teaching her to drive.
When Bev meets glamorous driving school owner Fiona (Sarah Hadland), she's determined to succeed, along with a group of other learner drivers.
Chris (David Tennant), a devout Christian with the patience of a saint, is assigned as her instructor and it's not long before Bev develops a crush on him. However, Chris has feelings for Fiona, but she's having an affair with a married man Gerry, who works with Bev.

Watch Learners on Drama (Freeview Channel 20, Sky Channel 166, Virgin Channel 190) on Friday 6th September at 10pm BST. There is also an early hours repeat at 2.50am on Saturday 7th.
