News: Upstart Crow To Return for Third Series In 2018

Upstart Crow is to return for a third series in 2018.

The BBC sitcom written by Ben Elton and starring David Mitchell as the bard will be filming new episodes in the New Year. Fans can apply for tickets below.

Ben Elton says: "I am so pleased that the BBC have decided to commission Upstart Crow Part 3. As Shakespeare himself proved with Henry IV, his very long play cycle about a not very interesting Henry,  if a thing’s worth doing, it’s worth doing thrice."


TV: Back, Episode 2, C4

When writer Simon Blackwell’s new series starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb was launched last month publications were sent an episode-by-episode breakdown. But shortly afterwards we were asked not to publish it as it was felt it would give too much away in advance. Having now seen the second episode I think I can see why. 

TV: Upstart Crow, BBC2

Ben Elton’s eloquent defence of the mainstream sitcom last month was illuminating, fascinating and persuasive. And in a way maybe it could be seen by some as an incidental pre-emptive strike against critics who might have their hatchets sharpened for the new series of Upstart Crow, Elton’s popular sitcom about Shakespeare’s early years starring David Mitchell.

TV: Back, C4

Let’s be crystal clear about this. Back is not Peep Show – What Happened Next? David Mitchell plays a feckless, inept man-child and Robert Webb plays a hopeless charmer who can’t help cocking up and landing on his feet, but that’s where the similarity ends. Almost.
