Quarantine viral video: W1A returns

Many US TV show casts are reuniting by Zoom for charity read-throughs and even whole new episodes – Mythic Quest has just unveiled its latest episode, shot using 40 iPhones in the actors’ homes.

However, they’re not alone and yesterday, the cast of BBC Two’s W1A reunited for a five-minute special to announce the formation of the BBC Covid-19 Bounce Back Group.

Among those making an appearance are Hugh Bonneville, Monica Dolan, Sarah Parish, Jason Watkins and David Westhead.
