First Look: Bert And Dickie
And for those of you who want to see the lovely Matt Smith playing a role that isn't a bowtie wearing alien this year, well towards the end of this month you can see him in the Olympic themed one-off, Bert And Dickie due to air on BBC1 and BBCAmerica, where on that station it's titled Going For Gold - The 48 Olympics.
The 90 minute drama sees Matt playing the role of gold medallist Bert Bushnell along with Sam Hoare playing the role of Dickie Burnell who have to overcome their own adversity during the 1948 Olympics, especially when the British committee are keen on letting it die and it's in this piece we get to see the formation of the Austerity Olympics. Definitely one to give a look at I think.
Bert And Dickie airs on BBCAmerica from July 25th and on BBC1 before then.
