Anyone watching this short programme with Michael Sheen and David Tennant - bit sweary but some light relief.

Yes, we watched it and loved it.

Yes. I saw it recommended on GN the other week. Loved it too especially the episode with Judy Dench.

If you haven't watched it and like these 2 actors, watch Good Omens which they both star in,

Yes we loved it when it was on the first time. Good fun.

My daughter told me about it and so I watched it (just 3 episodes so far). Really enjoying it! grin

I'm loving it. Missed it first time round. DH just doesn't get it though.

I thought it was great fun and watched the whole lot on iplayer, a week or two ago.

Am I shallow, because I enjoyed looking at their homes too?

I’m loving it. I also like looking at the ‘scenery’ 🤭

Me too. The only thing I've found I can fully enjoy! Dont want it to end.

It's great fun. Feels so natural but judging by the huge list of names on the credits it is indeed 'Staged'.

We watched it a while ago. Enormous fun and just like eavesdropping on a conversation involving lots of egos !! Loved Judi Dench's "awfulness!" grin

Loved Judi Dench " Do you know how tiring it is to be everyone's first choice for the next big role?" grin

Thanks for recommending this Teetime
I loved it! So witty. I haven’t laughed so much since the beginning of Lockdown! Stayed up until 11.30 last night to watch all 6 episodes. I’m going to watch it again

Thoroughly enoyable, especially the bit where David Tennant showed a pineapple he had drawn and Martin Sheen produced a lovely watercolour... Nice to see their lovely ladies too.

DanniRae Fri 10-Jul-20 11:48:17

Luckygirl - yum indeed........ but Michael Sheen is quite yum

Watching Staged was one of the stand-out moments of lockdowngrin
I loved Judy Dench being brought in to to sort them out! Also loved them resorting to childhood schoolroom tactics to get attention, holding their hands up to get attentiongrin
It was all an absolute joy! thanks to all.

Watched this on iplayer. Best thing on tv this year. Did you all notice the Tardis in David Tennants garden? Wish they would do more of these.
