Around the World in 80 Days
Summoning the wide-eyed spirit of his Doctor Who, British actor David Tennant is delightful as the daring (but occasionally ditzy) Mr. Fogg as he crosses the Yemeni desert, hitches a ride on a hot air balloon and inhales the aromas of India. Propelling us with zest and zip, this series travels light.
Disenchanted with the trappings of aristocratic life, soon-to-be adventurer Phileas Fogg proposes a wager that it’s possible to go around the world in - you guessed it - 80 days. And so begins a globe-trotting and occasionally life-threatening odyssey.
