Guesswork about Shakespeare beats TV 'Science" Any Day

The Herald has this article that appears to be about Shakespeare, but I'll be darned if I can figure out what the heck the man is talking about. Although it starts with a discussion about analyzing Shakespeare, it actually appears to be a review of three different BBC television shows - none of which appear to have been about him. Maybe the first one, but I have no idea. Who is William Boyd? Who is Rupert Graves?


Anybody want to translate for me?

Only A Waste of Shame was about Shakespeare, more details here:

Rupert Graves starred in it, William Boyd wrote it.

I never saw, nor heard of, Waste of Shame. I'll have to get a copy. I agree with dmorin about the writing. It looks like the article displays Shakespeare as a prop without conveying a connection to the message.
