David Tennant and Sarah Parish as Alan and Tricia

About the Show

This traumatic yet sometimes humorous one-off drama explores the experience of brain damage and its impact.

Alan (David Tennant) and Tricia (Sarah Parish) Hamilton are blissfully happy. He's on top of his game and head of a building firm. She's a beautician and mother to their two children.

One day their perfect life is torn apart when Alan steps in front of a passing car.

The resulting accident leaves him in a deep coma. Tricia is delighted when he awakes - only to discover the man she loved has disappeared.

Tricia longs to find her husband but fears she may have lost him forever.

Recovery is a Tiger Aspect production.
