The BBC have released some promotional pictures of former Doctor Who David Tennant and companion Billie Piper from an upcoming BBC drama, True Love – click on the images below for bigger versions. This five-part series will be “stripped” across the week (Sunday to Thursday), starting June 17 on BBC One with Tennant’s episode (Piper’s is the third). Actor David Morrissey (The Next Doctor) is also set to star in an installment.

True Love explores five powerful and overlapping love stories set in the same town. Each story looks at a different relationship and explores a different dilemma or situation. When it comes to love and relationships, there is never an easy “right answer” – telling the truth is complicated, and the conflict of desire and responsibility can be explosive. Pictured below with David Tennant is actress, Vicky McClure.

  1. I'm gathering from this article, David and Billie won't be seen on-screen together as they're in totally seperate episodes. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it's always good to see these pair back on our screens in what does promise to be quality drama.

    I don't think there's any question about footage from these episodes being stitched together to form fan make tributes to the Metacrisis and Rose. It's unlikely that those wanting to do so will have a better opportunity than now. That picture really does bring those ideas to mind 🙂

  2. If you did want to bring any past characters back together for the 50th, without it leaking out and generating a tonne of spoilers, maybe you'd invite them to take part in a different show as a ruse… sneaky Beeb! 😉
