This programme was broadcast on 7 November 2005. Written by David Nicholls.
When the bickering between broadcasters Beatrice and Benedick gets too much to take, their colleagues at South West TV come up with a cunning plan to shut the pair up. Meanwhile, lovely weathergirl Hero and dashing reporter Claude are a match made in heaven - but does everyone want to see them so happy?
Sarah Parish, Damian Lewis, Tom Ellis and Billie Piper star in David Nicholls updating of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing - one of the Bard's best loved and funniest plays.
