The complete series of Twenty Twelve and W1A are now available to watch for free via the BBC iPlayer platform for viewers in the UK.
David Tennant provides a tongue in cheek voice over for both of the spoof documentaries which follow Hugh Bonneville’s character, Ian Fletcher, across his career in planning for the London 2012 Olympics and then as the BBC’s Head Of Values.
Both series were written and created by John Morton and feature a stellar cast including Jessica Hynes, Olivia Colman, Jason Watkins, Monica Dolan, Sarah Parish, Nina Sosanya, Sara Pascoe and Rufus Jones.
DescriptionHosting the 2012 Olympics is a big deal for London, as evidenced by this comedy series, originally broadcast by the BBC, which follows the Olympic Deliverance team -- the people tasked with having the two-week event go off without a problem. The team has plenty of time before the deadline and 9 billion pounds to spend, so what could possibly go wrong? The team members do their best to get to the end of the day, the end of the week and, hopefully, the end of the Olympics without everything coming undone. Can they do it?
