David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Thursday 17th November 2022

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is a MP3 of the radio play Love Virtually which was broadcast on BBC Radio Four in 2012.

David Tennant played Leo Leike and Emilia Fox played Emmi Rothner in this radio play which was based on the novel written by Austrian writer Daniel Glattauer.

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

They met 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 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.'
