Storyline

When her incompetent TV news co-host is fired, Beatrice winds up working again with Benedict, towards whom she has nothing but disgust. Meanwhile weather girl Hero falls in love with a young man new to the station (much to the dismay of her not-so-secret admirer.) As Bea and Ben trade one-liners, their co-workers tell each that the other is really in love with her/him, which leads them to re-think their own feelings. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Goofs

At the fancy dress party for the new crew, Margaret Ursula and Hero are seen in the room upstairs talking. As Don is seen going upstairs towards the room you can see Ursula dancing at the foot of the stairs. When he reaches the room he hears them talking and the door opens. He runs away. Ursula comes out of the room with Margaret and Hero, but only seconds ago Ursula was downstairs and she had not come up whilst Don was there. See more »

Quotes

Benedick: [talking to himself] Love's just one of those things a man grows into, like jazz and olives. I'm not going to let a few sarcastic remarks change the way I feel. After all, the world must be peopled. When I said I'd die a bachelor I just didn't realize I'd live this long!

Beatrice enjoys her job, but when her colleague falls ill, a replacement is needed. The problem is the replacement is the last person Beatrice wants to see.... her ex!
4 December 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

From then on, its a battle for the two to get on together on-screen, they may think they have a break from each other off-screen but what they don't know is that their scheming colleagues are determined to be match-makers and bring them together.

I absolutely loved Much ado about nothing,the plot couldn't have been better. Sarah and Damien were excellent and played their characters really well, I really felt that they had a history. can't wait for it to come out on DVD. The actors were very well chosen and I loved the way it was adapted, for me it was, without a doubt, the best Shakespeare re-told drama I have ever seen.

Well done BBC, one again, another great drama success!
