The Politician's Husband (2013)
Saturday 4th May 2013
David Tennant and Emily Watson star as husband and wife in The Politician's Husband, Paula Milne's three-part serial about marriage, power and politics, released on DVD by 2entertain on 13th May 2013.
A bookend to the multi award winning The Politician's Wife, The Politician's Husband follows the shifting balance of power in a political marriage and the ensuing consequences when a wife becomes more successful than her husband.
Senior Cabinet Minister, Aiden Hoynes (Tennant), is happily married to Freya (Watson), a junior minister. When we meet Aiden he is a rising star in Westminster. He went into Parliament driven by idealism, but after his son Noah was diagnosed with Aspergers he allowed himself to be sucked into the power games of Westminster, which provided him with a place to hide.
Freya Gardner (Watson), although equally able, has put the brakes on her own political career in order to provide stability for the family. But even as a Junior Minister, most recognize she is a political star in the making.
The stellar cast also includes: Jack Shepherd (The Nativity, WyCliffe) as Aiden's Father Joe; Roger Allam (The Queen, The Thick of It) as Chief Whip Marcus Fitzwallace and Oscar Kennedy (Toast, Great Expectations, Hunted) as the Hoynes' son Noah.
