Shake­speare And Hath­away

The Western Star - - LIFE -

Satur­day, abc, 7.30pm

This Bri­tish de­tec­tive drama airs in the UK in the af­ter­noons, so you can guess what kind of fare it is. Light­weight and en­ter­tain­ing, clichés are em­braced and ab­surd sit­u­a­tions abound. Un­less you want hard-hit­ting drama, there’s not much to dis­like about Shake­speare & Hath­away. There are no dark plots: in­stead, you can breeze through each episode while ad­mir­ing the de­light­ful scenery. In “This Promised End”, un­der­taker Peter Quin­tus (Richard Lums­den) and his wife lead an idyl­lic, quiet life. So, it’s more than a shock when two hit men arrive, in­form­ing Peter that he has just 24 hours to live af­ter an undis­closed mis­de­meanour.
