The BBC Radio 3 blog also has a look at the making of the season which you can read here and David Tennant spoke to the Radio Times whilst recording Twelfth Night which you can read here.

A comedy of misrule and a trenchant attack on puritanism as disguise and deceit leads to misadventure, madness and mistaken love in one of Shakespeare's happiest plays. Orsino loves Olivia but she loves Cesario who really does love Orsino for Cesario is actually Viola. But Malvolio believes his mistress Olivia loves him as he is a victim of a trick played on him by those who would make him mad. Shakespeare unravels a comic knot and fashions a masterpiece.
Drama on 3 is featuring new productions of Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet and The Tempest as part of the BBC's Shakespeare Unlocked season. The first two plays, which reflect upon Shakespeare and love are performed by a company of actors including David Tennant and Rosie Cavaliero who won best actor and best actress respectively at the recent Audio Drama Awards.
