I’m sure we’ve all heard of this story one way or another. I mean it was a popular book before it became movies and then a tv show, that I absolutely loved and that’s "Around the world in 80 days". Now I can’t really go into the book or movies because I’ve never read them or watched the movies, but with David Tennant in the show as the lead, I definitely couldn’t miss it and I’m glad that I didn’t.
Basically you have rich guy that realizes from postcards and a past love that he’s been scared all his life, so wanting to change that he makes a bet with a friend in his gentleman’s club. The wager details that he can make it around the world in a mere eighty days. Nowadays, travelling around the world in 80 days wouldn't be that big of a feat. But back in 1872 using relatively means to go was a more difficult task. Two join him on this adventure, a servant and then a journalist, that will write about everything he does.
Does he make it and win the bet, well you’ll just have to watch and see, or even read it for that matter. I will say the recent show that just came out has to be my favorite and no I’m not just saying that because of Tennant, or am I?
I mean when you start to think about it "Around the World in 80 Days" is really like a very early reality show so obviously it is going to appeal to me. When I heard that they were doing a version with David Tennant? Well there was no way I was going to miss that, and it didn't disappoint. Packed with faces that would be familiar to English viewers this had me hooked from episode 1. And before everyone says "David Tennant" I have to say I don't love him in this - in fact I would say the rest of the cast not carries it - but those are the ones you are routing for!
Sadly the show itself was very poorly received, especially in England, but hey when have I ever cared about that. Personally, it was a win from me and I highly recommend you check it out even if you haven't seen any of the other versions, or read the story!
