UK PREMIERE: David Tennant Narrates A New Episode Of W1A On BBC Two Tonight



David Tennant lends his voice to a new episode of W1A as the third series continues on BBC Two tonight. David narrates the spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary which follows Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville), Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes) and the rest of the team prepare the BBC for charter renewal.

W1A - Episode 3
BBC Two, 10.00pm
Following on from the controversy over plans to axe the BBC Big Swing Band, the damage limitation team under Ian Fletcher is under huge pressure to limit the damage. A twitter campaign led by Jools Holland is gathering support from music royalty such as Sir Bob Geldof, Sir Tom Jones and Bono. And, as the much-loved Big Swing bandleader Ray Fredericks is both black and 75, there are a growing number of accusations of discrimination and ageism.
BBC News outlets only exacerbate the problem when Syncopatico, the new News subtitling software, continues to systematically misspell the names of the key players involved - including Jools Holland.
It is felt that an appearance from one of the BBC senior management team on the News at One would help and it falls to Ian Fletcher to face the music.
Meanwhile, the campaign to launch new online platform BBC Me continues and ex-intern Will Humphries is still standing at his station in reception trying to persuade passing celebrities to record themselves saying 'me' into his phone.

W1A is an award-winning comedy series, written and directed by John Morton. The series also stars Nina Sosanya, Sarah Parish, Hugh Skinner, Jason Watkins, Ophelia Lovibond, Monica Dolan and Rufus Jones. Guest cameos tonight come from actors Brian Cox and Hugh Grant.
