No Tardis or sonic screwdriver!

A storm is brewing over a performance of Shakespeare's classic comedy Much Ado About Nothing featuring TV favourites David Tennant and Catherine Tate.

Tennant and Tate appear as the bickering couple Benedick and Beatrice, who are "tricked" into an affair by their friends.

Tennant became a national figure when he portrayed Dr Who and it was during a series of the sci-fi show that he forged a partnership with Tate, already famous for her comic characters and catchphrase 'am I bovvered?'

But fans of the pair have been creating ugly scenes outside Wyndham's Theatre in London's West End. Police were called to the stage door last night as angry fans "jostled" staff and demanded their money back.

"It's a bloody disgrace," said Bernard Twat. "Me and the missus have come all the way down from Wakefield to see this - it's costing us an hotel and all.

"Where's the Tardis or the sonic screwdriver? Where's Lauren Cooper? Why doesn't she ever say 'am I bovvered?'

"Shakespeare? You can keep it. That's done it for me!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
