Apparently the only actor in the UK at the moment, David Tennant is to star in the â€œemotionally powerful yet funnyâ€ Single Father, a four-part drama being made through BBC Scotland, reports Herald Scotland.
Shooting on the serial – in which David Tennant plays a man struggling to raise four children after the death of his wife – will take place in and around Glasgow from March.
â€œI feel very lucky to have been sent this script.
â€œWhen I read what Mick Ford had written I was desperate to be part of this project. And to be working with Red Production Company again makes me very happy indeed.â€
Tennant previously worked Red Production Company on Russell T Davies’ Casanova in 2005.This time around he’s working from a script by Mick Ford. Anne Mensah is head of drama for BBC Scotland:
â€œI loved Mick Fordâ€™s scripts the first time I read them. Itâ€™s the most beautiful yet funny tale of grief, loss and new love you could hope to encounter. David Tennant is an amazing actor and perfect for the role.â€
Good to see the former Tenth Doctor actor staying in work – it will be fascinating to see how he fares in this challenging new role.
