THE POLITICIAN’S HUSBAND
8.30 PM, ABC
The Brits do TV drama so well, and this follow- on from the critically acclaimed The Politician’s Wife is no exception. The short- run series looks at what happens when the tables turn. Aiden Hoynes ( David Tennant) is a pollie whose star is on the rise, until his ambitions are suddenly cut short and he’s relegated to obscurity. His wife Freya ( Emily Watson, above) is catapulted into the limelight – a dramatic power shift he struggles to accept.
