Ashes To Ashes: I’ll Be Watching You

Daniel Mays as DCI Jim Keats

“AS a massive fan, it’s been great to be such an important part of it all.”

Daniel Mays arrives as DCI Jim Keats in the first episode of the final series of Ashes To Ashes this Friday night.

Will Gene Hunt’s (Philip Glenister) world ever be the same again?

I interviewed Danny on the Ashes set for a feature to be published in the MEN on Friday.

Regular readers of this blog will already have seen my exclusive first look at episode one, published here earlier this month.

Along with the latest interview with Phil and added blog extras.

At the risk of repeating myself, all I can say is that the opening hour is just terrific – with episode two another cracker.

I’ll stick a link here when I post the Danny Mays interview online. My chat with Keeley is now set to be published to tie in with episode three.

Update: The interview with Mr Mays is here.

Gene and Alex in episode one

Things to look out for in episode one include:

1. A bold and brilliant action-filled movie.
2. A circus.
3. A TV news report.
4. Sunglasses.
5. 34,274,552.
6. A handshake.
7. A notebook.
8. Methodists.
9. A closing door.
10. 9.06
11. A book.
12. A father.

*For those not following me on Twitter…I popped in somewhere special yesterday and took these photos, with recommended slideshow here.

Ashes To Ashes final series episode one is screened on BBC1 at 9pm on Friday. I’ll be watching…will you?
