Former 'Doctor Who' co-stars David Tennant and Billie Piper are to be reunited on screen in new BBC romantic drama 'Love Life'
Former 'Doctor Who' co-stars David Tennant and Billie Piper will be reunited on screen in a new BBC romantic drama.
The tenth Doctor will join forces with Billie - who played his companion Rose Tyler from 2005 to 2010, when they both left the sci-fi show - to star in five-part series 'Love Life', which follows the romantic affairs of five couples in one town.
Unveiled at the Edinburgh Festival this weekend, the series will be a first for the BBC as it will feature a number of improvised scenes.
BBC Drama head Ben Stephenson told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It features some of our very best acting talent working in a way we've never seen on screen from them before."
David has previously filmed erotic scenes with actress Suranne Jones for drama 'Single Father', but admitted he didn't find the experience very sexy.
He said: "Whatever you might think, filming a sex scene is never an erotic and charged experience, not that Suranne isn't lovely. I wouldn't wish to be doing it with anyone else! What am I saying?
'Love Life' also stars Jane Horrocks, David Morrissey and Ashley Walters, and was written by BAFTA award winner Dominic Savage.
