Much Ado About Nothing - Shakespeare Retold

Set in the contemporary world of broadcasting, Beatrice (Sarah Parish) is an ambitious anchor who finds herself back working with detested 'old flame' Benedick (Damian Lewis). As the constant bickering begins to drive everyone to despair, their work colleagues come up with an ingenius plan to shut them up. Another in the excellent 'Sheakespeare Retold' series, also starring Billie Piper as the weathergirl and Tom Ellis as the dashing reporter whose perfect love does not delight all. Wickedly good television.
