“IT really is an astonishing story. An incredible adventure. Pure and simple.
A story of discovery and imagination…”
Max Irons talking to me about his role as archeologist Howard Carter in Tutankhamun (ITV, 9pm, Sunday October 16).
The four part series does, indeed, tell an astonishing story.
With Sam Neill as Lord Carnarvon, the man with the money – and patience – behind this real life quest.
The cast also including Catherine Steadman as Maggie Lewis and Amy Wren as Evelyn.
Written by Guy Carter, Tutankhamun is a glorious period drama filmed on the borders of South Africa and Namibia.
Leading up to and then beyond the historic moment when Lord Carnarvon asks Carter, ‘Can you see anything?’
To which Carter replies: ‘Yes. Wonderful things.’
