David Tennant in Recovery
In recent months, Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond has been much in the news for making a miraculous recovery from a serious brain injury following his high-speed crash as part of the programme. But a forthcoming BBC drama showing next weekend aims to show that, in many cases, people who receive brain injuries are often changed forever.
Recovery, broadcast on Sunday 25 February at 9.00pm on BBC One, stars current Doctor Who David Tennant and Sarah Parish as Alan and Tricia Hamilton, who lead a happy if unremarkable life until the day when Alan gets hit by a lorry. When he comes round from a coma he has lost his inhibitions, his short-term memory and his emotional core.
