Suranne Jones joins David Tennant on BBC’s Single Father

Suranne Jones (Five Days, Unforgiven) will star alongside David Tennant (Doctor Who) in Single Father, a new four-part drama for BBC One made by Red Production Company through BBC Scotland, which started filming in Glasgow this week.

Written by Mick Ford (Ashes To Ashes, William And Mary), Single Father is a touching yet humorous drama which tells the story of Dave (David Tennant), a photographer facing the seemingly impossible job of bringing up four kids alone after the sudden death of his wife, Rita.

Things get even more complicated when he begins to fall in love with his wife’s best friend, Sarah (played by Suranne Jones). Single Father asks how soon is too soon to fall in love again?

Is Dave betraying Rita by falling in love again so quickly, or will he be walking away from happiness if he ignores his feelings? With his children at the centre of his world, Dave worries what will happen when they find out.

Suranne Jones says: “I just think David’s great. I’ve always admired him so I’m really looking forward to working alongside him on Single Father, as he’s such a diverse and talented actor. With Single Father, Mick Ford created a beautiful drama about unexpectedly finding love again and I’m thrilled to be working with Red again.

“This will be my first time filming in Glasgow. I’ve heard lots of great things about it and I’m looking forward to getting settled in and exploring the city.”
