Airdate: There She Goes

UK dramedy There She Goes starring David Tennant & Jessica Hynes begins on BBC First.

Both 2018 / 2020 seasons will screen as double episodes, as 10 x 30 min.

There She Goes is a comedy-drama about a severely learning disabled 9-year-old girl Rosie and her family. 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 everyday isn’t her birthday. A second timeline 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.

Fridays at 8.30pm from April 2 on BBC First.

  1. Excellent cast but tough to watch. It not only jumps around rapidly between different times but also jumps to bits of set piece farce and one–liners to provide comedy, but are fairly repetative. It took 3 eps before I understood what was going on and decided that I liked it. But it’s worth persevering with.
