Eve will be starring in a new three-part drama about the true story of the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy and incitement to murder. Actors Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw take the lead roles in this 2018 drama directed by Russell T Davies.
It is the late 1960s, homosexuality has only just been decriminalised and Jeremy Thorpe, the leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, has a secret he’s desperate to hide. As long as his ex-lover Norman Scott is around, Thorpe’s brilliant career is at risk. Thorpe schemes and deceives – until he can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Jeremy Thorpe changed society forever, illuminating the darkest secrets of the Establishment. The Thorpe affair revealed such breath-taking deceit and corruption that, at the time, hardly anyone dared believe it could be true.
A Very English Scandal will premiere on BBC One in 2018.
Eve will be returning to our TV screens early next year in a new eight-part BBC series titled Un Bore Mercher/Keeping Faith.
Here’s a short synopsis:
Filmed back-to-back in Welsh and English, the series tells the story of lawyer, wife and mother Faith (Myles) as she fights to find the truth behind the sudden disappearance of her husband. She comes to discover that her beautiful, idyllic home town, set on the estuary, harbours many dark secrets that threaten the lives of Faith and her family. Faith’s ordeal transforms her from a stay-at-home, fun-loving and carefree mother to detective, action hero and lover. She takes risks and gambles and finds a new inner strength.
Matthew Gravelle, who played Joe Miller in Broadchurch, will also appear in the new drama.
ITV have released the first teaser for series 3 of Broadchurch, featuring a quote famously from Tess of the D’Urbervilles – but what does this all mean?
Of course, we have no idea as to whether Eve will be in this series at all – could
Chibnall really just leave the story of Claire Ripley and Lee Ashworth with them going to prison? We’ll have to anxiously wait and see…
A couple of actual clips from the new series can be seen here, in ITV’s ‘What’s to come in 2017’ video:
The Radio Times have perfectly summed up all we know about series 3, as it appears to be more secretive than ever!
The new series will deliver a brand new case for Miller and Hardy with the detectives teaming up once again, this time to investigate a serious sexual assault and its consequences as the drama’s Dorset community comes under scrutiny. Based on a year of research, the drama’s last series will look at the emotional cost to everyone involved and the irreparable damage to friendships and relationships.
“This is the final chapter of Broadchurch,” said writer Chris Chibnall who will take over as showrunner on Doctor Who in 2017. “We have one last story to tell, featuring both familiar faces and new characters. I hope it’s a compelling and emotional farewell to a world and show that means so much to me.”
*We will keep posting updates about Broadchurch until we know whether Eve is in it for sure or not.*
The Sunday evening drama has been written by Daisy Goodwin and been produced by ‘Mammoth Screen’:
the series tells the story of the first years of her reign, beginning with the moment of the Queen’s accession in 1837, and following her first faltering steps from capricious, hormonal teenager with a weak grasp on her duties and responsibilities to burgeoning monarch, and her marriage to Albert (Tom Hughes). – Radio Times
Here is the trailer for the series:
And here is an extended ‘first look’ clip:
We hope everyone enjoys the new series, make sure you turn over to ITV at 9pm on Sunday 28th August 2016!
Here is a short synopsis of the piece, written by Big Finish:
“It stalks you. It whispers. It wants you to turn around. It wants you to look. But if you do… If you see it…”
Talmouth is a lonely seaside town. No-one has heard from it for days. No-one who goes in comes out. Something has happened to Talmouth. Has it been taken over by aliens? Or is it something far, far worse?
Gwen Cooper’s come to Talmouth to find out. What’s happened has to be seen to be believed. But by the time you’ve seen it, you’re already dead.
