But love is blind, and lovers cannot see what pretty follies they themselves commit.' The Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare. Shakespeare was right but unfortunately it's not just foolish acts that love can inspire, but murderous ones too. From the couple that breaks religious traditions for love, to the priest who has fallen for a nun, each episode of this true crime drama centres on star-crossed lovers who have defied the forces trying to keep them apart. But once they've crossed that line, anything can happen on Investigation Discovery's newest docu-drama Forbidden: Dying for Love. Among the forbidden tales uncovered in this series is the single mum whose 18-month jail sentence led to a passionate relationship with a prison guard. But when she vows to leave him, will he let her go? When a strict father who forbids relationships discovers his 15-year-old daughter plans to run away with her boyfriend of four years, will he follow through on his vow to kill her? And when a single mum's new fiance asks her to kill his ex-wife and children, will she accept his sinister proposal in the fear her family could be next? Anything is possible in the name of love. Especially when that love is forbidden.

Return to the Forbidden Planet is a Jukebox musical by playwright Bob Carlton based on Shakespeare's The Tempest and the 1956 science fiction film Forbidden Planet (which itself drew its plot loosely from The Tempest). It was billed as “Shakespeare's forgotten rock and roll masterpiece”. Return to the Forbidden Planet started life with the Bubble Theatre Company as a production for open-air performance in a tent. A revised version of the musical opened, indoors, at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool in the mid-1980s. It later moved to the Tricycle Theatre in London. After some rework a final version opened the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End in September 1989. It won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical for both 1989 and 1990.
