David Tennant says 'There She Goes' isn't "about manufacturing" scenes to get a certain reaction from viewers.
The 49-year-old actor - who is reprising his role as Simon Yates in the popular BBC comedy drama - has opened up about the success of the show, and explained how the show strikes a balance between the "emotional" and more lighthearted moments.
He said: "I think it's important that the story is told truthfully and honestly.
"There is very little in the show that hasn't happened to Shaun and Sarah's family, so it's not about manufacturing comic moments or emotional scenes, it's just about honestly reflecting what happened."

The Doctor Who actress has urged women to get a smear test as she revealed how the procedure saved her life. The 35-year-old Doctor Who actress is urging other women to book smear tests after the procedure saved her life in 2018 when she received the diagnosis.
The programme - which will move to BBC Two for a second season starting next Thursday (09.07.20) after a well-received first series on BBC Four in 2018 - is based on the real life experiences of writers Shaun Pye and Sarah Crawford.
Their daughter was born with an extremely rare - and thus far undiagnosed - condition, while the show follows the life of Rosie Yates (Miley Locke), a severely learning disabled girl, and her family.
David admitted there is an added challenge when he and Jessica Hynes - who plays his on-screen wife Emily - are playing out the more "painful" scenes.
He added: "I think Jess and I were always very aware that we were telling Shaun and Sarah's story.
"It's pretty much autobiographical, and knowing that you are retelling often quite painful moments in the life of someone who is sitting round the corner watching on a monitor feels like a big responsibility.
"But that very truthfulness is what made the scripts so powerful and drew me to the story in the first place."
