Vote For There She Goes In The TV Choice Awards


Voting is now open on this year’s TV Choice Awards and David Tennant’s recent project There She Goes is on the Best Comedy longlist.

The five part series centres on a severely learning disabled nine 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 every day isn’t her birthday. A second timeline set 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 received critical acclaim from the press, with The Telegraph giving it a five star review and saying "this sucker-punching sitcom nails the experience of raising a child with learning disabilities" adding "Tennant’s Simon is a twitchy knot of anger, denial, despair and defensive humour."
Radio Times said "David Tennant shines bright and believable as the flawed father of a daughter with a disability" and commented "what makes BBC4’s new five-part comedy There She Goes so moving, authentic and uplifting is the honesty of Shaun Pye’s scripts, based on his own experiences as a parent of a child with a disability."
And Digital Spy said "Handled differently, this could have become an entirely different story, devoid of any humour or joy. But Pye, through his writing and direction, paired with outstanding performances from both Tennant and Hynes, yanks you back from the edge at just the right moment, stopping the audience from hurtling into complete and utter despair – because if you don't laugh, you'll cry, and never stop." adding "it is not to be missed"

Jessica Hynes was also awarded the BAFTA for Female Performance In A Comedy Programme for her role in the series. 


The longlist will remain open until 31st May. Voting for successful shortlist nominees will then open in June before the final winners are announced in September at a ceremony at London’s Hilton hotel. 

The full series of There She Goes can be streamed on BBC iPlayer in the UK and on BritBox in the USA and Canada.
