Much Ado Review Round Up

Image
It was press night for Much Ado About Nothing last night and so the reviews are in! And what fabulous reviews they are with both David and Catherine being praised by the critics for their amazing chemistry.

Critical Quotables:
Don Mackay of The Daily Mirror says: "David Tennant is a comic tour de force in brilliant Much Ado About Nothing adaptation" and "There is much to love here and nothing to fault."

Michael Billington for The Guardian gave the show 4 stars out of 5 and said: "Tennant is especially good at showing Benedick's transition from the self-conscious madcap of the officers' mess into a man capable of love. He makes his entrance in a golf-buggy, dons a Lily Savage wig and tight skirt for Leonato's party but is hit amidships when he learns that he is adored by Beatrice. The great comic moment in Tennant's performance comes when, flinging his arms wide to the heavens, he declares: "I will be horribly in love with her."

This Is Jinsy Press Release

Image
Sky Atlantic HD is thrilled to announce a host of guest stars that will make appearances across its first original comedy commission, This Is Jinsy, including David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Simon Callow, Harry Hill, Jennifer Saunders, and many more.

Directed by Matt Lipsey (Psychoville, Little Britain), This Is Jinsy is an eccentric eight-part comedy written by and starring newcomers Chris Bran and Justin Chubb. This Is Jinsy follows Arbiter Maven (Chubb) and Operative Sporall (Bran) as they keep a close eye on the 791 residents of Jinsy from the Great Tower in the parish of Veen. Life on the island is rather Orwellian: each colourful member of the community is monitored by a surveillance system of tessellators, from local folk dribbler Melody Lane to weather monk Tracee Henge.
Episode one will see a guest spot from David Tennant as Mr Slightlyman, a corrupt, camp wedding planner with bad plastic surgery. Harry Hill will also make his debut in this episode as the sinister Joon Boolay, w…

Can David Tennant and Catherine Tate make Shakespeare the year’s hottest ticket?

Image
TV's favourite Tardis crew are the most anticipated pairing in years for one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies. Michael Coveney hears about happy landings with Catherine Tate and David Tennant.
Earlier this year on Graham Norton's BBC television chat show, David Tennant and Catherine Tate gave a mock preview of their appearance together in Much Ado About Nothing opening next week at the Wyndham's Theatre in London. After Doctor Who, in which Tate played a bickering Donna Noble to Tennant's extrovert time-traveller, we have Much Ado, in which Tate plays Beatrice, "My Lady Disdain", one of Shakespeare's most affecting comic characters, to Tennant's boastful and self-sufficient Benedick, "Signor Mountanto", in a "merry war of words". They fooled around on the chat show sofa, answered questions, denied they were lovers in real life ("really good actors do have sex when they work together" teased their host) and exchange…
