Perhaps you can give a bit more detail here. You mention a drop in tub. Is the shower going to be above the tub, or will the shower be totally separate unit?
Is blue board the same as what is called green board here in the U.S.? I've been reading these forums because I'm planning or re-doing my shower soon. I'm not an expert by any means but I understood green board is OK for the wall above a tub, if it is a tub only, but is no longer installed in wet areas, like a shower or tub deck at all.
Maybe I'm just misunderstanding your plan.
