David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Thursday 15th December 2016

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a MP3 of the lovely story Love Virtually which featured David Tennant and Emilia Fox when it was first broadcast on Thursday 8th March 2012 on BBC Radio Four.

This drama is based on a book by Austrian novelist Daniel Glattauer and the BBC describes it as:
'A thoroughly modern epistolary novel with one difference - its 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.'

The drama was adapted by Eileen Horne and the producer is Clive Brill for Pacificus Productions.
