How long has it been Shakespeare
Shakespeare and Hathaway - these were the surnames of England's most famous poet and his wife (first names: William and Anne). A little less prominent, but still popular enough for the continuation of their BBC TV series are "Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators".
ZDFneo will show the episodes of the second season around the investigator duo for the first time on April 24, albeit unfortunately at night from 11:30 p.m. If you want to see all ten, you have to hold out until 6:30 a.m. on Saturday morning! Let's hope that it will be really exciting so that we can stay awake ...
The series is set in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's hometown, where he is also buried. The city offers the idyllic half-timbered backdrop for less idyllic incidents such as murder and manslaughter, kidnapping and adultery, which Lu Shakespeare (played by Jo Joyner) and Frank Hathaway (Mark Benton) have to solve.
As you can see, the sexes are reversed here, Shakespeare - actually a hairdresser by profession - is female, Hathaway - an ex-detective man - male. Their experiences, errors and confusions form the material for the typical mixture of crime and light comedy, which the British are particularly good at. It's also not as bloody as in some other series, so that - if the airtime in this country were more family-friendly - children could also watch.
A little gag are the titles of the episodes, all of which consist of William Shakespeare quotes in English. Unfortunately, this effect is completely lost in German, as "In my Memory lock'd" (from "Hamlet"), for example, has been translated somewhat unimaginatively as "payday".
The BBC has already produced a third season that we haven't seen yet. Further sequels are planned.
Shakespeare & Hathaway - Private Investigators: Season 1 will be shown completely on ZDFneo on Friday, April 17, 2020 from 11:25 p.m. Season 2 on Friday, April 24, 2020 completely from 11:30 p.m.
