W1A Preview Gives a Glimpse Of David Tennant's Lines

Ian Fletcher (played by Hugh Bonneville), the former head of the fictional Olympic Deliverance Commission in Twenty Twelve makes a very welcome return to TV screens next week in new sitcom W1A. Following his great success in bringing the 2012 London Olympics into fruition Ian has now been headhunted by the BBC and takes up a new role as Head of Values. He's joined by another familiar face from his past as PR guru Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes) is also on board. The four part series is created by John Morton (Twenty Twelve, People Like Us) who once again uses his trademark mock-documentary style to poke fun at the jargon and bureaucracy of large organisations. 

David Tennant returns to deliver a deadpan narration, and the preview of the series in The Independent gives a first glimpse of some of the lines that he will be delivering:

On Ian Fletcher's new role:
"...a key and very senior new post specifically created in light of recent learning opportunities at the Corporation."

That as the leader of the BBC's Way Ahead Task Force Group, Ian has:
"...the chance to put the value of values literally on the agenda."

On a new BBC One show: 
"...the dream team of Alan Titchmarsh and Clare Balding. It's 'Countryfile' meets 'Bake-Off' with a bit of 'The One Show' thrown in, just in case. Its aim is to change the face of Sunday night TV, for better or for worse."

W1A begins on BBC Two on Wednesday 19th March at 10pm
