It seems to there is bonus haul for all David Tennant US fans this week. As of today all three series of the W1A the mocumentary narrated by David Tennant are available for US fans. Also on US Netflix are Jessica Jones S1, Spies of Warsaw, Casanova, and The Decoy Bride. And the BBC documentaries Spy in the Huddle, Spy on the Ice, and Spy in the Pod.
Certain Netflix is the place to be for David Tennant fans.
W1A is the sequel to the award-winning mockumentary Twelve Twelve. Hugh Bonneville returns as Ian Fletcher, the former Head of the Olympic Deliverance Commission. Fletcher now has a new role – Head of Values at the BBC where he is expected to “clarify, define, or re-define the core purpose of the BBC across all its functions and to strengthen its future position, in particular for Licence Fee Renegotiation and Charter Renewal in 2016 and 2017”.
It is a new start for Ian Fletcher but he hasn’t managed to escape his old colleagues completely and once again he finds himself trying to decipher Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes) nonsense. The Perfect Curve guru has been hired as a PR consultant for Brand based on her stellar work at on the Deliverance Commission.
Siobhan Sharpe, isn’t his only worry, as Fletcher finds his new BBC colleagues, played by Sarah Parish, Nina Sosanya, Jason Watkins, Monica Dolan and Hugh Skinner, to be just as mystifying as anyone he has met at the Olympic Deliverance Commission. The deadpan delivery of the W1A cast and droll narration of David Tennant proves to be another winning and hilarious combination.
W1A is named after the London postal code for the New BBC Central building. It is written and directed by John Morton (People Like Us), produced by Paul Schlesinger and executive produced by Jon Plowman, the same team behind Twenty Twelve.
