Anna Friel talking to me on location in Paddington about Marcella (ITV, 9pm, Monday April 4).

In a cinema several floors below we’ve just seen a cast and crew preview of her new ITV1 drama series Without You.
It’s late evening and there’s a post-screening get-together to attend just around the corner.
