“PEOPLE may think they know this story but there is so much more to be discovered in this drama.
“I think the audience will find it both very interesting and surprising.”
Matthew Macfadyen talking to me about his role as Major Charles Ingram in new three part ITV drama Quiz.
Which starts at 9pm on Easter Monday (April 13) and continues at the same time across consecutive nights on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
Quiz is one of the very best things I have seen on TV in recent times and comes highly recommended.
It is funny, moving, revealing, thought-provoking, compelling and about far more than just the simple story of ‘The Coughing Major’.
A simply delicious and irresistible piece of television with a brilliantly layered script by screenwriter James Graham.

There are wonderful performances from the entire cast. Also including: Mark Bonnar as Paul Smith, Elliot Levey as David Briggs, Trystan Gravelle as Adrian Pollock, Michael Jibson as Tecwen Whittock, Risteard Cooper as David Liddiment, Aisling Bea as Claudia Rosencrantz, Jeremy Killick as Paddy Spooner and Helen McCrory as Sonia Woodley QC.
