    I don’t know. Given that filming hadn’t even started when the article was written I guess it won’t be until at least some time next year.

    The latest series (series 3) of Stephen Fry’s radio programme ‘Fry’s English Delight’ has just finished. the last episode is still available on iPlayer for the next couple of days:

    I’ve just finished listening, and may I comment on how seriously interesting that is… the fact that Shakespeare would struggle to understand our language now, but we wouldn’t have had too many problems understanding his back then. Where do you think our language will be in 200 years time?
