There She Goes (BBC-4 2018, David Tennant, Jessica Hynes)

Published

There She Goes is a comedy-drama about a severely learning disabled nine year-old girl Rosie (Miley Locke), her dad Simon (David Tennant), mum Emily (Jessica Hynes) and brother Ben (Edan Hayhurst).

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 every day isn’t her birthday.

A second timeline set 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.
