Much Ado About Nothing - The BBC Shakespeare Collection DVD - NEW & SEALED

Much Ado About Nothing

"Friendship is constant in all other things
Save in the office and affairs of love:
Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues;
Let every eye negotiate for itself
And trust no agent.

Starring Clive Dunn, Robert Lindsay, Cherie Lunghi and Michael Elphick...

When homecoming warriors Claudio and Benedick turn their attentions to romance, friends, brothers and lovers are all soon found wanting. Claudio quickly becomes engaged to Hero, while Benedick quips and quarrels his way into her cousin Beatrice’s heart. But when Claudio is tricked into jilting his fiancée, Benedick is forced to choose between friendship and love...

This spirited production of the first of Shakespeare’s three great romantic comedies featured some of the favourite names of British television, Robert Lindsay and Cherie Lunghi perfectly enact the sparring wit of Benedick and Beatrice, and in Dogberry and Vesper – two of Shakespeare’s best-loved clowns they are perfectly supported by Michael Elphick and Clive Dunn.
