Acting Inside the Box
"Staged" - Series OneTelevision in 2020 was quite different, due to the pandemic. But there was one show that fully embraced the reality and ... made a comedy out of it.

We talk about the characters/actors and how it worked. In our look into the TARDIS library, we looked at a child of "Who", Sean Pertwee, and his appearance in the American show "Elementary."
