Scottish actor David Tennant returns to British TV this summer for a second season of There She Goes, a brutally honest dramedy TV series inspired by the real-life experience of two parents raising a daughter with a rare learning disorder.
Tennant and co-star Jessica Hynes play stressed-out parents Simon and Emily, while Miley Locke plays their daughter, Rosie, and Edan Hayhurst plays their son, Ben.
The show grapples with the everyday trials, bitter frustrations and sweet victories of raising a daughter with an undiagnosed chromosomal disorder. It also finds genuine humour in that struggle by showing two parents who can laugh at themselves and their lot throughout the experience.

In one of the new episodes, for example, Simon and Emily spend much of their time trying to downplay — and then meet — Rosie’s demands for an impromptu, out-of-season Christmas celebration.
The first season of the show was met with critical acclaim back in 2018, when Hynes won a BAFTA award for her performance and Locke was widely praised for her portrayal of Rosie.
The show returns to BritBox Canada this summer on Aug. 18.
Global News recently sat down with Tennant, Hynes and the show’s married writers, Shaun Pye and Sarah Crawford, who based the series on their experiences raising their own daughter, Joey.
The actors and creators shared some of the lessons they learned from Season 1 and what they’re excited about in Season 2.
Tennant, who is best-known for starring in Doctor Who, also explained why he joined There She Goes before it had been officially picked up for Season 1.
David and Jess, tell us about the genesis of this project.
David Tennant: We did. It was about 10 minutes long. And it was a collection of scenes that more or less appeared in the first series somewhere. It was three days and we just had a go at it. I think lots of people, including ourselves, felt like, tonally, this is unlike anything people have known before.
It was quite a delicate thing to get right, and that balance between the comedy, the drama, the real life, the veracity of real experience, can it be entertaining — all those things.
Also, how to represent Rosie? It was something that everyone felt a real responsibility to get right.
Jessica Hynes: And I think that’s what the key thing is, Miley Locke’s performance (as Rosie), and the way she responded to the part and the direction was amazing. It was spellbinding. We were all blown away by her, and I continue to be blown away by her.
