Preview pictures, trailer for BBC's 'The Politician's Husband'

The Doctor is transitioning from the fast-moving world of time travel to the snail's pace of politics.

The Politician's Husband

David Tennant stars alongside Emily Watson ("Angela's Ashes") in the new BBC2 drama "The Politician's Husband," premiering later this month. Producers have provided a sneak peek at the series with a new collection of production stills in anticipation for the April 25th premiere.

The drama centers on Tennant's character, Aiden, a politician who has always put his own career before his family life. However, his oft-ignored wife Freya, played by Watson, has political aspirations of her own, and as she steps out of her husband's shadow her career trajectory could potentially thwart her husband's.

The three part drama is a follow up to the 1995 drama "The Politician's Wife," which featured Trevor Eve ("Waking The Dead"), Minnie Driver ("Good Will Hunting") and Juliet Stevenson ("Mona Lisa Smile"). Writer Paula Milne said that the project will look at "power within a marriage... I wanted to explore the way that men feel about their wives becoming more successful than them - that's an interesting dynamic to set against the power games in Whitehall."
