W1A

the series philosopher W1A wikiW1A is a British comedy television series that was first broadcast on BBC Two on 19 March 2014. The four-part series is the follow-up to Twenty Twelve, a BAFTA-winning comedy series by the BBC. Its name comes from the postcode prefix of the BBC’s headquarters, Broadcasting House (W1A 1AA). Hugh Bonneville (Twenty Twelve, Downtown Abbey) and Jessica Hynes (Twenty Twelve, Up the Women) reprise their Twenty Twelve roles alongside a new cast, and David Tennant’s (True Love, BroadchurchJessica Jones) role as narrator also continues from the earlier series.

The plot: W1A shows Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville), formerly the Head of the Olympic Deliverance Commission, has taken up the position of Head of Values at the BBC. His task is to clarify, define, or re-define the core purpose of the BBC across all its functions and to position it confidently for the future.
