Wild Laughter In The Throat Of Death: Will Shakespeare (David Mitchell) has been working on his masterpiece. His friends tell him it’s his greatest comedy yet, but Will insists that Hamlet isn’t actually meant to be funny.

In the meantime Greene (Mark Heap) has hit on an ingenious new way to destroy Will’s reputation, by excluding him from his high-brow literary set, and Marlowe’s (Tim Downie) reputation is in such a bad way that he could really do with being dead for a bit. Only Will’s dad John (Harry Enfield) is pleased because now that Will has bought him a coat of arms he is officially a gentleman, even if none of his behaviour is in any way gentlemanly.

Meanwhile the players need another box office smash and it looks like Hamlet is going to need a bit more thinking about. As luck would have it, Will does have an idea for a new comedy – but there’s something not quite right about the title for Love’s Labour’s Licked.

Pictured above are Anne (Liza Tarbuck), Mary (Paula Wilcox), Will (David Mitchell), John (Harry Enfield), Bottom (Rob Rouse), Susanna (Helen Monks), Kate (Gemma Whelan), Hamnet (Joe Willis).
