Suranne Jones will co-star with David Tennant in Single Father, a new four-part drama for BBC One.

According to the BBC, 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 (Suranne Jones).

Suranne 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.”

Single Father started filming in Glasgow this week.
