DRAMA OF THE WEEK
Much Ado about Nothing 8.30pmBBC1
Shakespeare's confection of love, jealousy, barbed insults and lies is smoothly transferred to 2005, and a regional television newsroom. The updating works well, as long as you approach it as "based on" rather than a "word-for-word transposing" of Much Ado.
Its verbally sparring twosome, Beatrice and Benedick (a sparky Sarah Parish and a suave Damian Lewis, initially resplendent with bouffant and George Michael beard) are co-anchors of Wessex Tonight, and though they have to keep up that faux mateyness we all recognise from local news shows, once the cameras stop rolling they're bitching about, and at, one another.
Their fed-up colleagues collude to trick B and B into falling in love by a series of ruses, just as another love affair, that of weathergirl Hero (Billie Piper) and sports presenter Claude (Tom Ellis), starts to flourish. But someone wishes Hero and Claude ill.
It doesn't matter if you're unfamiliar with the original play, as this version stands up well in its own right, and fizzes along with plenty of humour and sexual tension. Alison Graham William's women: page 12
