Safe House: Interviews

“I had to wild swim in Coniston Water once or twice.

“And I was in Derwent Water three times…and it was very cold.”

Christopher Eccleston talking to me about his role as former police detective Robert in new ITV drama Safe House, filmed in the Lake District.

“The house is a central character. We do have the sense the ‘safe house’ is ironic. Because it’s not safe.”

The four part thriller was created and written by Michael Crompton, who wrote the screenplay for acclaimed Code of a Killer.

It begins on ITV at 9pm tomorrow – Monday April 20 – and also stars Marsha Thomason as Robert’s teacher wife Katy.

With Paterson Joseph as DCI Mark Maxwell, Jason Merrells as David Blackwell and Nicola Stephenson as Ali Blackwell.

It was a pleasure to interview all five leading cast members for ITV’s press pack / production notes.

Safe House is an acting homecoming for Manchester-raised Marsha, a star of American film and TV, who now lives in Los Angeles.

She was just starting out when I used to regularly interview her for UK dramas like Playing The Field and Burn It.
