UK: There She Goes Special Comes To BBC Two Later This Month

David Tennant and Jessica Hynes revisit the chaotic world of the bittersweet comedy There She Goes in a one-off special episode coming to BBC Two later this month. The show airs on Wednesday 21st June at 9pm. David appeared on BBC One's Breakfast to chat briefly about his experiences of working on the series and expressed how proud he is to be involved in telling the story.

Based on the real-life experiences of writers Shaun Pye and Sarah Crawford, whose daughter was born with an extremely rare chromosomal disorder, There She Goes follows the day-to-day life of Rosie Yates (Miley Locke), a severely learning disabled girl and her family, dad Simon (David Tennant), mum Emily (Jessica Hynes) and older brother Ben (Edan Hayhurst).

Rosie Yates is now 13 and is starting to display increasingly challenging, emotional and physical behaviour. Veering wildly from joyous obsessions with her letter X, tigers with Xs on their nose, ticket barriers and Fedex lorries to sudden violent outbursts both directed at her parents Si and Emily and herself.

The family realise that Rosie is simply struggling to cope with the onset of puberty, just like any other teenage girl. Whilst the family deal with a teenage Rosie, their geneticist calls with news of Rosie’s condition.

In the earlier timeline Emily starts thinking about whether she and Si should think about having another child after a chance meeting with a mother of a child with a chromosomal disorder.

David can also be seen on BBC One next week when Zoom-based comedy Staged returns for a third series on 14th June.
