David Tennant in Love Virtually

Former Doctor Who actor David Tennant will be lending his vocals to an upcoming BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama, Love Virtually.

Starring David Tennant and Emilia Fox, Love Virtually by Austrian novelist Daniel Glattauer is a thoroughly modern epistolary novel with one difference - its protagonists Emmi Rothner and Leo Leike communicate exclusively by email.

They 'meet' when Emmi mistakenly sends an email to Leo's inbox. A romance ensues that allows them to live out a shared secret life far removed from their day-to-day existences. The story asks to what extent the relationship relies on fantasy and escapism and whether it will it survive a real life meeting.

The problem is Emmi is married - but does a virtual affair ‘count’ as adultery?

The tale questions whether it’s possible to fall in love with someone you've never met - and explores the implications of anonymity in cyberspace.

The audio drama will air on Thursday 8th March 2012 from 2.15 - 3.00pm on BBC Radio 4.
