After a few internet rumours yesterday it appears that David Tennant has signed on to the new BBC Two three-part drama series The Politician's Husband. Although no formal announcement has been made yet, David's involvement has been indicated by a source involved with the programme.
From the Mentorn International website:
The Politician's Husband
The Politician's Husband is a drama exploring what happens in a political marriage when the wife becomes more successful than her husband.
Aiden Hoynes, a senior Cabinet Minister, is happily married to Freya, a junior Minister who has consistently put her own career ambitions on hold for the sake of Aiden's career and their family.
When Aiden's career path to the top echelons comes to an abrupt halt, the power balance within his marriage is irrevocably shifted as he witnesses his wife's political career soar.
In his desperation to cling to power, Aiden risks destroying everything he holds most dear.
Director: Simon Cellan Jones
Writer: Paula Milne
BBC, UK - 3x60'
Filming of the series is due to start this month and continue until July.
Last week, David was also linked to a new drama series for ITV, Broadchurch, which is thought to start filming in August.
