David Tennant - Hang Ups

David Tennant played a cloakroom attendant called Martin Lamb in Hang Ups which was described as 'an unconventional comedy about an unconventional therapist trying to keep his unconventional life, and patients, from falling apart.'

Stephen Mangan stars and co-wrote the six part series with Robert Delamere. It was broadcast on Channel Four starting on Wednesday 8th August 2018 at 10pm. David Tennant appeared in the second episode which was broadcast on Wednesday 15th August.

The description of the series is: 'Stephen Mangan stars as Dr. Richard Pitt, a therapist who finds himself at a crossroads in life. After the collapse of his previous group therapy practice, Richard develops a new form of therapy –weekly quick-fire sessions with his patients through a webcam. The few patients on his list present a hilarious and outrageous catalogue of neuroses, phobias, issues, anxieties and psychopathies, but even these short sessions, where he’s confronted by everything from the sublime to the ridiculous, are not his greatest challenge...

His patience and temperament are stretched to their limit by the daily interruptions of a demanding extended family, errant teenagers and his own trouble-filled past.

The all-star cast includes Richard E. Grant, Jessica Hynes, David Tennant, Arsher Ali, Charles Dance, Katherine Parkinson and Celia Imrie amongst others.'

Channel Four released the following bio for David Tennant's character:
'Martin seeks Richard’s help when the pressure of leaving the cloak room to act sommelier for the evening becomes too much for him. Perhaps some of Richard’s role-playing techniques might give him the confidence to step up.'

The dialogue of the 30 minute episodes were ad-libbed by the actors.

Hang Ups will be released on DVD on Monday 1st October.
