The names of the main characters obviously refer to William Shakespeare and his wife, Anne Hathaway. The name of the senior police officer, 'Marlowe', is a reference to Christopher Marlowe, a playwright contemporary with Shakespeare. The assistant, 'Sebastian', most likely takes his name from the character in 'Twelfth Night'. See individual episode's trivia sections for more character names that come from Shakespeare's life and works. See more »
Yes I know the title is a cliche, but then it is brimming full of quotes from the Bard himself, and it is quite fun trying to spot them all, I am sure we missed a few. If you like a harmless sex and violence free drama, this is a perfect escape. The stories are a little cliche'd and quite a lot of poetic licence is taken, but if you just sit back and watch, you are in for a treat. Yes the police are awful, even by daytime TV standards, but overall the acting is fine and the writing is just what it needs to be. It is not a 9pm programme, doesn't pretend to be, but is equally as enjoyable as Death in Paradise, Father Brown or Midsummer. More please.
