UK PREMIERE: W1A Series 3 Continues Tonight On BBC Two - David Tennant Narrates


The third series of the award winning sitcom W1A continues tonight on BBC Two at 10pm. Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Hynes return to the roles of Ian Fletcher and Siobhan Sharp with David Tennant back on voiceover duties. The spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary is a follow up to the acclaimed series Twenty Twelve and follows characters from that show as the move into new roles in the BBC. The six episode series was written and directed by John Morton and the cast also includes Jason Watkins, Nina Sosanya, Sara Pascoe, Sarah Parish, Jonathan Bailey, Hugh Skinner and Monica Dolan.

Series 3 Episode 2

Cross-dressing ex-Premier League footballer Ryan Chelford's appearance on a late-night, midweek edition of Match of the Day did not go well. Host Gary Lineker and pundit Alan Shearer were literally lost for words. But the BBC in general and, in his role as head of values Ian Fletcher in particular, are under pressure to find an on-screen role for Ryan as quickly as possible. A summit meeting is arranged to include heads of football, inclusivity and a late curve ball in the shape of head of diversity to try and find a solution to a problem that is getting increasing attention on social media.

To complicate matters, Fiona Craig, the senior civil servant with responsibility for charter renewal negotiations, is visiting the BBC to see what a normal day in the life of the corporation looks like.


Meanwhile, the campaign to launch user-generated content platform BBC Me gathers pace with David Wilkes still keen to take ownership of the idea he originally borrowed from ex-intern Will Humphries.
