W1A series 2 preview

Often overlooked, is David Tennant's narration which for me, holds the show together and often most of the laughs are as a result of his descriptions, for example "It's another day, at another time" or "After a year developing a drama, the project is finally nearing another meeting".

Wimbledon 'too white'... in W1A world

Heard the latest? The BBC's Wimbledon coverage is 'too white' and the broadcaster's exclusive rights to the tournament are at risk. Luckily, the BBC has a rescue plan. It's fixed on French tennis star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga as its Wimbledon saviour and is considering pepping up programming with foam fingers in the stands, David Attenborough in the umpire's chair and Graham Norton in the players' box. But hold your fury, tennis fans; this is all happening in the parallel world of W1A - BBC Two's sitcom set in the Corporation's London headquarters that will begin its second series next week.

Jeremy Clarkson's ignominious exit from the BBC has claimed another casualty - nothing to do with Top Gear but a running gag in BBC Two's satirical comedy about the corporation, W1A.
