The BBC has released the first trailer for There She Goes, a new comedy-drama series starring David Tennant and Jessica Hynes as the parents of a nine-year-old girl with severe learning disabilities.

In the footage, Tennant’s character is seen wrestling with his squirming daughter, Rosie, as he’s asked whether she’s expanded her vocabulary beyond “‘x’, ‘y’ and ‘z'”.

“Very few words and moments of explosive violence. Very much like Jason Bourne,” the Broadchurch star quips in response.

The BBC4 series was penned by veteran comedy scriptwriter Shaun Pye (Rack Pack, Todd Margaret), who drew from his own experiences for the show. Pye’s own daughter, who was born in 2006, has an extremely rare, and so far undiagnosed, chromosomal disorder.

The trailer features emotional flashbacks to Rosie as a baby, before showing the family coping with their day-to-day life.

“I don’t like to admit I keep getting beaten by a tiny nine-year-old girl,” Tennant jokes, as he and W1A’s Hynes carry a struggling Rosie across the street.
