Upstart Crow - Series 3

Plays, pies and Tudor plots abound in Ben Elton's critically acclaimed comedy about William Shakespeare.

With a family in Stratford and his theatre company in London, the Bard is burning the candle at both ends. His teenage daughter Sue is as stroppy as ever, best mate Kit Marlowe is in danger, and neighbour Kate is desperate to be an actress - despite the fact it's still illegal for women to do anything interesting.

Meanwhile, Will has been working on his masterpiece, Hamlet. Pity everyone think it's a comedy. Love potions are sweeping through Stratford and there's something a little off about Love's Labour's Licked.
