The three-part gripping drama follows the shifting balance of power in a political marriage and the ensuing consequences when a wife becomes more successful than her husband.
Tennant plays Senior Cabinet Minister, Aiden Hoynes who is happily married to Freya (Emily Watson), a junior minister. When we meet Aiden he is a rising star in Westminster. He went into Parliament driven by idealism, but after his son Noah was diagnosed with Aspergers he allowed himself to be sucked into the power games of Westminster, which provided him with a place to hide.
Ben Stephenson, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning, says: "Paula Milne returns to BBC Two with a fine piece of drama that manages to combine the political and domestic worlds so elegantly. Starring David Tennant and Emily Watson, it demonstrates the channel's continued commitment to original British drama."
The drama is currently shooting in London and is written by Paula Milne, produced by Daybreak Pictures and was commissioned by Janice Hadlow and Ben Stephenson.
