Believe It: Drink: Episode One Synopisis

David Tennant's new BBC Radio 4 project, Believe It, starts on Wednesday 9th May at 11.30
The four part comedy kicks off with episode one, Drink, which asks Why does Richard Wilson get drunk every 25th November?

Celebrity autobiographies are everywhere. Richard Wilson has always said he'd never write one.
Based on glimmers of truth, BELIEVE IT is the hilarious, bizarre, revealing (and, most importantly, untrue) celebrity radiography of Richard Wilson.
He narrates the series, weaving in and out of dramatised scenes from his fictional life-story. He plays a heavily exaggerated version of himself: a Scots actor and national treasure, unmarried, private, passionate about politics, theatre and Manchester United (all true), who's a confidant of the powerful and has survived childhood poverty, a drunken father, years of fruitless grind, too much success, monstrosity, addiction, charity work, secret work for governments and fierce rivalry with Sean Connery (not true). All the melodramatic staples of celebrity-autobiography are wonderfully undercut by Richard's deadpan delivery.
(The title - in case you hadn't spotted - is an unashamed reference to his famous catchphrase.)
Richard is supported by a small core cast viz:
David Tennant
John Sessions
Lewis Macleod
Arabella Weir
And Jane Slavin
Who play anyone and everyone!
Produced by: Clive Brill
A Pacificus Production for BBC Radio 4.


  1. So Richard Wilson will say BELIEVE IT,and with his best friend, David Tennant, how fantastic! Just can't help waiting for that!
