Tim Davie, acting Director General of the BBC, is determined to “hit the ground running”, as he announces some of the new programmes that will be soon be hitting our screens. “Anyone who thinks that the BBC is self-obsessed, inward-looking and beset by internecine squabbling should check out our new prime-time series. ‘Drama Queens’ features a bunch of media executives who are trying to manage a bloated organisation that’s veering dangerously out of control. Colin Firth stars, alongside Robbie Coltrane and Helen Mirren, with Billy Piper reprising her now-familiar role as ‘something for the dads’. Be prepared for plenty of unlikely plot twists, culminating in a gripping denouement... which will come as much of a surprise to the scriptwriters as it will to the viewers.” (Warning: this programme contains mild self-flagellation. And nuts)...
