David Tennant Series There She Goes Makes Broadcast's List Of Shows Of 2018



The comedy drama There She Goes has been included in Broadcast magazine's shows of 2018. The five part series starred David Tennant and Jessica Hynes as Simon and Emily, parents of a severely disabled child.

Reporter Max Goldbart says:


There She Goes (BBC4)
This relentless yet consistently touching BBC4 comedy/drama fulfils the ambition of its dual-genre in spades.
Based on writer Shaun Pye’s own experiences, There She Goes pulls no punches in its portrayal of a troubled family coping with a severely disabled nine-year-old daughter.
The five-part offering flits comfortably between the present day and the early months of protagonists’ Emily and Simon’s daughter Rosie in 2006.
It is at times hilarious and at other times hugely painful, as Monkey Dust co-creator Pye cathartically reflects on where his approach to parenthood spiralled out of control, before subsequently being rescued.
At a time when disability portrayal on TV is firmly under the spotlight, Miley Locke’s Rosie is fantastically realistic and, while David Tennant shines as Simon, Jessica Hynes’ depiction of a mother almost driven to a psychotic episode feels Bafta-worthy.
Why this series wasn’t handed a primetime spot in the BBC schedules is anyone’s guess.
