It’s likely the most British show the British Broadcasting Corporation could possibly make. A new series coming to BBC One entitled Victoria Wood’s Nice Cup of Tea has the TV actress and comedienne talking about the time-tested English tradition of drinking tea. Why bring this up, besides to assuage my inherent Anglophilia? It’s because a clip that was posted on the YouTubes last week features Doctor Who star Matt Smith talking about tea and his and the Doctor’s enjoyment thereof. He is a delight. Now, I’m off to drink more Earl Grey.
And, just because I like to get people excited, here’s BBC America‘s trailer for the next episode, “Cold War,” which will air this Saturday at 8/7c, followed by Orphan Black and The Nerdist.
