David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Tuesday 15th March 2016

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a MP3 of the radio play Love Virtually which was written by Austrian novelist Daniel Glattauer and first broadcast on BBC Radio Four on Thursday 8th March 2012.

David Tennant played Leo Leike and Emilia Fox played Emmi Rothner.

BBC Radio Four described it as 'a thoroughly modern epistolary novel with one difference - it's protagonists Emmi Rothner and Leo Leike communicate exclusively by email.

They 'meet' when Emmi mistakenly sends an email to Leo's inbox. A romance ensues that allows them to live out a shared secret life far removed from their day-to-.day existences. The story asks to what extent the relationship relies on fantasy and escapism and whether it will it survive a real life meeting. The problem is Emmi is married - but does a virtual affair 'count' as adultery? The tale questions whether it's possible to fall in love with someone you've never met - and explores the implications of anonymity in cyberspace.'
