David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Saturday 18th June 2011

The David Tennant Treat 4 Today is the five star review of Much Ado About Nothing from tomorrow's News Of The World newspaper.

"Hey nonny yes, yes, yes! Former Doctor Who duo David Tennant and Catherine Tate are brilliant as sparring partners Benedick and Beatrice in what is Shakespeare's best take on the battle of the sexes.

Having tried dating each other once before, now they have decided single life is superior and so set about putting each other down at every opportunity.

Director Josie Rourke sets the great-looking play on the Costas near Gibraltar in the early 1980s.

Here between military conflicts men in sexy white uniforms relax in the sun or disco with the daughters of monied tax-dodgers.

Bored with peacetime and keen to stir things up a bit, Benedick's and Beatrice's friends set about bringing the couple together.

Truly talented Tennant amazingly manages to fit both clown and hero in one slim-fit body (even when dressed in miniskirt and boob tube).

And Tate's great as a woman whose sharp wit separates her from the lip-gloss crowd.

There's great support, too, from the rest of the cast who busy themselves with the other strand of the play which is a kind of Romeo and Juliet with a happy ending.

Many thanks to PolyG for posting the review to the GallifreyBase forum.
