Ben Elton’s Shakespearean sitcom returns to see talented but low-born baldy-boots Will Shakespeare (David Mitchell) continue his quest to make his name as a playwright in Tudor London, a city where unfortunately being posh and well-connected turns out to be more important than being a genius. Meanwhile Will also has a bit of a problem with his work-life balance and it’s one hell of a commute back and forth to Stratford-upon-Avon to spend time with his loving but loud family. This series reveals some of the surprising stories behind Will’s plays, including a brush with an African general with a bit of a jealous streak; a shrewish teenage daughter who may or may not need some “taming”; the little known story of how Shakespeare invented musical theatre with the help of a madrigal-writing rocker (Noel Fielding); the original inspiration for Juliet; and of course a great deal of wit, ale, pies and women dressing as men…
