David Tennant stars in this touching and humorous four-part drama about a man struggling to raise his four children after the sudden death of his partner.
Dave is a lovely man in his late 30s, happily living in the midst and mess of a pretty typical 21st century family. He adores his partner Rita, even when she’s difficult, which is quite often, and he loves their kids. But when Rita dies suddenly, Dave faces the daunting prospect of bringing up their children on his own, as well as coping with his own and his children’s grief. Things get even more complicated when he begins to fall in love with his wife’s best friend, Sarah. Is Dave betraying Rita by falling in love again so quickly, or will he be walking away from happiness if he ignores his feelings?
