New Project | Victoria

By October 21, 2015 News, Projects

News has just been released that Eve will be starring in the new ITV drama, Victoria! Eve, Peter Firth (Spooks: The Greater Good) and Rufus Sewell (The Man In The High Castle) are the latest cast announcements for the new drama, and will be working alongside Jenna Coleman – who is playing the lead role of Queen Victoria.

Victoria is being hailed as an “ambitious landmark drama” which will follow the early life of Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman), from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of 18, through to her courtship and marriage to Price Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years, and was the UK’s longest serving monarch until she was overtaken by Elizabeth II earlier this year.

The only information we have at the moment is that Eve will be playing the role of Victoria’s senior dresser, Mrs Jenkins, and that the new series will be released in 2016, starting with the first 90 minute episode and then continuing with a further seven, 60 minute episodes.

Here are a list of press releases so far:

  • Peter Firth, Eve Myles & Rufus Sewell Join ITV’s ‘Victoria’ – TV Wise
  • Jenna Coleman leaves Doctor Who behind in first look at ITV’s Victoria – Digital Spy
  • FIRST LOOK: Jenna Coleman transforms into a young Queen Victoria in new still for upcoming ITV period drama – Daily Mail
  • Here’s our first look at Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria – Metro

As more news, images and articles are released they will be posted – we can’t wait to see Eve in this new role!

Radio 4’s Halloween | Koji Suzuki’s Ring

By September 25, 2015 News, Radio, Updates

This year, BBC Radio 4 are devoting three hours of air-time on Halloween to playing radio adaptations of horror classics!

The evening will kick off at 10pm with Nigel Kneale’s classic 1972 teleplay, ‘The Stone Tape’ starring Romola Garai, Julian Barratt and Jane Asher. Afterwards, at 11pm Eve and Naoko Mori will be starring in Koji Suzuki’s ‘Ring’, adapted from the novel ‘Ringu’ published in 1991. The book has already been adapted into movies, manga and a TV series – and now it’s time for radio. The piece has been adapted by award-winning playwright Anita Sullivan and directed by James Robinson. According to The Guardian, videotapes and possessed televisions feature heavily in the piece – so fans are excited to see how these concepts have been adapted into radio.

Both of these new productions feature binaural recording techniques, where microphones placed either side of a dummy human head lend recordings a 3D effect when listened to on headphones. If you are feeling brave, there will be a binaural version onRadio 4’s website on the night.

By September 8, 2015 Images, News, Projects, Torchwood, Updates

The Gwen and Rhys Big Finish audio drama has finally been announced! The drama is titled ‘Forgotten Lives’ and focuses on post Miracle Day life for Gwen and Rhys…

It has been four years since the Miracle, and Gwen and Rhys’s lives have gone back to normal, very normal. They’re raising their daughter (they’ve got pictures they’d be only too happy to show you), they’re living in a nice house, and they’re almost on top of the laundry.

Captain Jack Harkness has been missing from the world and their lives for a long time. But late one night the phone rings, and they’re summoned to an isolated part of North Wales. The Bryn Offa Nursing Home contains a dark secret, an alien threat, and someone who reallyshouldn’t be there.

Gwen and Rhys are about to discover that Torchwood stays with you for the rest of your life.

The piece was written by Emma Reeves and directed by Scott Handcock. The cast includes Eve as Gwen Cooper, Kai as Rhys Williams, Phillip Bond as Griffith, Valmai Jones as Elunedd, Seán Carlsen as Gary and Emma Reeves as Ceri / Nurse Bevan.

The audio drama is being released in November, following ‘The Conspiracy’ and ‘Fall to Earth’ – Jack Harkness and Ianto Jones’s stories. To find out more about these two releases, please check out our previous website post! ‘Forgotten Lives’ can be pre-ordered here, in either CD or download format. (Please note that all CD purchases also come with one free downloadable version of the drama as well.)

Big Finish also have a subscription service for all six of the new Torchwood dramas – information for this can be found here.

BBC Radio 4 Drama | Stupid Men

By September 22, 2015 News, Projects, Radio, Updates
Stupid Men

Eve recently teamed up with actor Matthew Gravelle for the BBC Cymru Wales Production of ‘Stupid Men.’ The story was written by Gary Owen, and directed by Helen Perry.

Ryan was once a rising rugby star, until an early injury crushed his dream. Now he’s a husband, a father, a worker and only a semi-professional part-time rugby player. But as the pressures of daily life mount, and his home-life becomes increasingly strained, one last shot at sporting glory might be his only hope of keeping his family together.

You can listen to the entire broadcast via BBC Radio 4 here or below thanks to Cazie.
