PICK OF THE DAY DOCTOR WHO "A man of travel, that hath seen the world": it's a meeting of the minds when the Doc (David Tennant, right) visits the Bard
DRAMA Doctor Who 7.00pm BBC1
Strap yourselves in for one of the most sparkling and energetic episodes yet as the Doc and new sidekick Martha (Freema Agyeman) tumble into Shakespearean England.
They meet the Bard himself (played with impish charm by Dean Lennox Kelly from Shameless), a bit of a jack-the-lad in between all that writing. But a triumvirate of witches is determined to hijack his latest play - the oddly unfamiliar Love's Labour's Won - for their own twisted purposes. When the Doctor and Martha visit the Globe Theatre for a night's raucous entertainment, they become enmeshed in a race to stop these weird sisters from changing the course of history.
It's lovely stuff, thanks to a shimmering script by Gareth Roberts packed with clever references and in-jokes, along with breathtaking asides that will have you laughing out loud. And the final sequences in the Globe are thrilling. (Alison Graham, TV editor) Behind the scenes: page 8
