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!

I never thought I would like Shakespeare!
8 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember the days at school having to read Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet, and to be honest the lure of a good Stephen King book was always greater! So basically Shakespeare, or the idea of Shakespeare has never rocked my boat. However, I decided at the last minute to watch the programme, and boy was I glad I did. Very entertaining storyline, and I thought Billie Piper was a real star. Damian Lewis played his character Benedick to perfection, a perfect rendition of a very cringeworthy character, before his reform! I highly recommend it to anyone who has always had Shakespearaphobia as a place to start. I am even contemplating buying the original book to see how I get on with it!
