Shakespeare & Hathaway – Private Investigators (Series 3)

The daytime detective drama returned for series 3, and series 4 is already commissioned for next year!

For Frank Hathaway (Mark Benton) and Luella Shakespeare (Jo Joyner), they are just where we left them, continuing to solve crimes in Stratford-Upon-Avon assisted by
Sebastian Brudenell (Patrick Walshe McBride). Though Frank has a nice new haircut, given to him by former hairdresser Luella!

There is a change this series – Christina Marlowe (Amber Agar) isn’t in. She’s been promoted to special task force, and Joe Keeler (Tomos Eames) has got her old job!
This gives a different dynamic, as while Frank and Christina had a close, if awkward, bond, Frank and Joe just don’t much care for one another, so Joe is a lot less keen on helping out than Christina was.

However, while Joe has taken Christina’s place in one sense, the space left for a new regular character has been taken by, well, a new regular character. P.C Viola Deacon (Yasmin Kaur Barn) who is friends with Sebastian.

But other than that, the series continues as it has done. Expect lots of Shakespeare references!

The Masked Singer

(The show has just finished it’s first run now, but the rest of this post CONTAINS SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the full series!)
