NEWS: There She Goes returns to BBC TWO

There She Goes again as series two makes the move to BBC Two



The critically acclaimed comedy-drama will return as series two moves over to BBC Two.

Based on the real-life experiences of writer Shaun Pye, whose daughter was born with an extremely rare and, to date, undiagnosed chromosomal disorder, The series follows the day to day life of a severely learning disabled girl Rosie (Miley Locke), her dad Simon (David Tennant), mum Emily (Jessica Hynes) and brother Ben (Edan Hayhurst).   Jessica Hynes recently won a BAFTA for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme for her role in the show.

Series one which debuted on BBC Four last year chronicled the dual timeline of Rosie as a newborn and age 9. The new series will be set around 18 months on and will focus on Rosie at the ages of 3 and 11.

Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning said “Series one pushed at the boundaries of what television comedy can explore and achieve. Its unsentimental approach was shot through with love and humour to create something very unique and poignant. We experienced a tidal wave reaction of people who were moved and won over by it; the themes and stories of series two are richer still.”

Clelia Mountford, Co-Founder, Merman said "We’re so excited at Merman to be able to continue on Rosie’s journey alongside the Pye family and to tell even more of their amazing story.  The nation fell in love with Rosie as much as we did, and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of that.”

Shaun Pye, writer and creator said "The massively positive response to the first series from parents and siblings of children similar to Rosie showed us that while our daughter is one in a trillion, we’re part of something much bigger. Sarah and I feel very proud to be able to tell more of our daughter’s story … or to put it more accurately, write down all the loveable, infuriating, beautiful, crazy stuff she does.”

Series One is currently available on the BBC iPlayer.
