About

My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and The Halcyon).
I have also written some posts about diversity in the entertainment industry.

Television - Eternal Law

An excerpt from an SFX interview with Matthew Graham:
How's your new show, Eternal Law, coming along?
Ah, Eternal Law is going great! I can't believe we're three weeks into filming already. It's looking great. It's being so beautifully made, and the cast are really bedded into their roles and having fun with it.
It's too early to say what kind of show it's going to be. It's clearly going to be a very emotional show, and quite dramatic and powerful. It's not overtly fantasy, but it does have a fantasy vein in it. It's too early to know quite the full tone is, like we were with Life On Mars. You can't tell until you see it cut together! So far, we're having a great time on it!

A timeline of sorts summarising selected tweets from Sam West (Zak), Monastic Productions (writers Matthew Graham and Ashley Pharaoh), Ukweli Roach (Tom), Claire Jo Benjamin (assistant director), Sophia Di Martino (guest star) and Rosalie Carew (script editor) for the past few weeks.
