Corona, the first full-length feature about the pandemic, is a one-shot thriller set in an elevator, an impressively speedy, if dubious, feat In these times of self-isolation, it’s easy to sit back and plot the type of coronavirus movie you’d like to make. Maybe it’s one about an embattled team of scientists and their desperate search for a vaccine. Maybe it’s one about an estranged father who has to fight his way through police lines in order to give his son a birthday present. Maybe – because not everything can be a gritty drama – it’s a hilarious comedy about a man whose trousers fall down whenever he coughs.

Tony Robinson: ‘Sitting at home now, we have the luxury of reinventing everything’24h Tony Robinson: ‘Sitting at home now, we have the luxury of reinventing everything’
He found fame as Baldrick in Blackadder but Tony Robinson is equally proud of his documentary work. With a new series celebrating global train travel, he reflects on lockdown, his socialist beliefs and why he doesn’t miss acting Three weeks ago, Tony Robinson completed a six-part series for Channel 5 – it starts tonight – charting a journey that took him around the world by train. Now, like the rest of us, he is being told not to walk to the end of the street. We were due to meet face to face for this interview, but we have to talk by phone instead. The upside is we have all the time in the world. “I’m one of those people who a few weeks ago would have looked at my watch and said: ‘Is 10 minutes all right?’” he says. “But now …” He trails off. Everything has been cancelled: shooting on two other series; preparing a pitch for a third. What had been a crowded diary is empty.
