Staged

Staged starring David Tennant and with Doctor Who references makes its Australian TV debut on ABC Comedy on Monday September 21 2020 on ABC Comedy at 8:30pm.

Cachu Hwch:
Series opener.
The episode title is Welsh for “It’s all gone wrong”.
Starring David Tennant and his Good Omens co-star Michael Sheen as fictionalised versions of themselves.
A reminder that Tennant was the Tenth Doctor came when the TARDIS can be seen in his garden when he was there.
This was made around the real pandemic that is COVID-19 and not bad start to the series as discussions is made about a play that Tennant and Sheen was due to star in before the said pandemic started.

Up To No Good:
Season 1, Episode 2.
First appearance by Nina Sosanya. She has worked with David Tennant before including in Doctor Who: Fear Her.
However unlike the others Sosanya is not playing herself but a character named Jo.
Intriguing on Simon going missing and how Georgia’s writing has given inspiration to David.
In fact I have been attempting on my own novelisation for a personal project of mine.

Who The F#!k is Michael Sheen?:
Season 1, Episode 3.
The episode title is a question asked by Samuel L. Jackson who got reminded that he had worked with Sheen in Unthinkable (2010).
Funnily enough David Tennant is credited with his birth name David McDonald.
Amusing what came out of the said exchange with Jackson.

Bara Brith:
Antepenultimate episode of season 1.
Funny how David Tennant gets credited here.
Michael explains that the episode title means a Welsh fruit cake.
However according to IMDb, “a fruit loaf would be a more accurate definition especially since “bara” means bread. “Brith” means “speckled” (caused by the ingredients such as raisins etc)”.
Funny when Michael thought that David sounds cartoonish.
What a task Jo had in mediating a dispute between David and Michael.
Neat that David referenced him voicing Scrooge McDuck in the Ducktales reboot when the subject of him sounding cartoonish again at the end.

Ulysses:
Penultimate episode of season 1.
The episode title is in reference to that classic book with Adrian Lester saying that he had read it twice and about to do it for the third time.
Remarkable as I doubt I would be able to finish it for the first time around.
Michael says that everyone loves Neil Gaiman. Neat reference as Michael and David were both in the adaptation of Gaiman’s Good Omens.
Intriguing on what was going on with Michael’s unseen neighbour.

The Cookie Jar:
Season 1 finale.
Funny when Dame Judi Dench suddenly came in a conversation between David and Michael.
She is the friend that Jo mentioned a little bit earlier on but we didn’t know yet who it was.
Interesting reading of Georgia’s book.
Good news about Michael’s neighbour.
Funny this ends back with David, Michael and Judi as they talk about credit and funny how Judi gets credited.
