Staged, 10.45pm, BBC One

This is a fictional insight into how the pandemic has effected one of the world’s biggest tourist attractions - London’s theatre district. Or, more specifically, those involved in theatrical productions.

In this six-part series of shorts, David Tennant and Michael Sheen (below) play exaggerated versions of themselves who were due to put on a play in the West End before the production was put on hold because of Covid-19.

The play’s director, Simon Evans, is worried that his big break is about to pass him by and tries to convince his doubtful actors to carry on rehearsals online.

In the six-part series, Tennant is portrayed as the more affable of the two, while Sheen must be coaxed and flattered before he commits to remote rehearsals.
