Chasing Shadows: Interviews

Chasing Shadows

“IT’S chilling how many people go missing every year.”

Reece Shearsmith talking about his role as DS Sean Stone in new ITV drama Chasing Shadows.

The four-part series is based around a Missing Persons Unit and the hunt for serial killers who prey on the vulnerable.

Co-starring Alex Kingston as civilian analyst Ruth Hattersley and Noel Clarke as DI Carl Prior.

I had the pleasure of interviewing all three leading cast members on location earlier this year.

I’ve now seen the first two episodes of the series, written and created by Rob Williams, having also read all four scripts at the outset.

Sean is a fascinating character in a world of darkness and light with the potential for many different stories.

There are terrific performances from Reece, Alex and Noel as the relationships of their characters develop.

Against a backdrop of locations adding to the “lost” feel of those the team are seeking to find before it’s too late.

By the end of the second episode you may find yourself agreeing with Rob that this is not “just another crime show”.

Check out the press pack link, along with more pics and links further down this page.

Chasing Shadows begins on ITV at 9pm this Thursday (Sept 4).

Doctor Who: Let’s Kill Hitler BFI

DOCTOR Who supremo Steven Moffat:

“There are more beginnings and more endings this series than you’re perhaps ready for.”

“Assuming an intelligent audience is a good idea. Clearly going by our ratings it’s a successful idea. They are clever. They will get it.”

“I think you’ve got to be challenging and difficult and on the edge all the time.”

Lead writer, executive producer and showrunner Steven after last night’s exclusive big screen preview of Let’s Kill Hitler.

Or in other words, Doctor Who series six, episode eight to be broadcast by BBC1 on Saturday August 27 after the mid-series break.
