Are you spending your lunchtime watching Shakespeare & Hathaway?
Shakespeare & Hathaway are private investigators in this comedy drama set in the Bard’s birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon. Ex-detective Frank Hathaway (Mark Benton) and his business partner Luella Shakespeare (Jo Joyner) run an unorthodox but highly-successful private detective service.
What’s quite fun is that the titles of the episodes are quotes from Shakespeare’s works. And when filming is happening, everyone hangs out a a the local pub which is popular with actors, called The Dirty Duck. In the show, they have played on the name, and the writers have called it The Mucky Mallard!
I loved working on location for this show, and I found the actors and actresses professional to work with – and very patient on the long days of shooting. This BBC show has been so popular, it’s now on Series 3!
And it’s always great to be recognised and get that credit!
