A heart-warming comedy drama written by, and starring, Jessica Hynes (née Stevenson), Learners follows the trials and tribulations of a group of learner drivers.

Bev is a downtrodden wife who's failed her driving test eight times. She's desperate to pass, yet frustrated by her husband Ian's impatient approach in teaching her how to drive. When Bev is inspired by glamorous driving-school owner Fiona, she's determined to succeed along with a group of other learner drivers.

Chris, a devout Christian with the patience of a saint, is assigned as her instructor and it's not long before Bev develops a crush on him, despite his geeky appearance.

Bev is played by Jessica Hynes (Spaced), Ian by Shaun Dingwall (Doctor Who), Fiona by Sarah Hadland (Confetti) and Chris by David Tennant (Doctor Who).

Haha cheers Atari, I think I quite like the sound of that. Tennant as a geek - of course we still would!

I remember reading about this in the Radio Times - Jessica Hynes was so chuffed that David Tennant had agreed to do a rubbish low budget film with her. Bless his sexy soul!

Should be interesting, that.

It'll be good to see Jessica Hynes and David Tennant together again. They're very cute together.

Assuming direct control...

That said, and excitement running high as it is, I don't think it's going to be that good. Even if it was brilliantly written, there isn't that much potential for brilliance anyway. It's about driving.
Also I'm a bit fed up of this sort of woman in TV, the scatterbrained/dotty/socially awkward type who are quite endearing to somebody... As if the words "scatterbrained" and "dotty" didn't annoy me enough, now they're all over the bloody place.

But yaay, David Tennant!

David tennant Was good, and so was Jessica Hynes.
but i though the story line was weak although the twist at the end was good.

Skip Life and come with me?
