“FOR every action there’s a reaction…”

Ray Winstone stars at the title character in new three-part ITV drama The Trials of Jimmy Rose.

With Amanda Redman as his wife Jackie.

Two class acts in a strong cast, featuring Downton Abbey’s Tom Cullen, Paul Jesson, Marion Bailey and Montanna Thompson.

The Fall

“THEY don’t know him. But he knows them.”

The Fall is one of the most compelling drama series I’ve seen in recent years.

A top class script matched by superb cast performances, direction by Jakob Verbruggen, editing, soundtrack and anything else you’d care to pick from the end credits.

WHAT will your verdict be?

Back in January 2002 I attended the launch of a new ITV1 drama series called The Jury.

Written by Peter Morgan, whose subsequent credits include The Last King Of Scotland, The Queen, Longford, The Other Boleyn Girl, Frost/Nixon, The Damned United and The Special Relationship.

Last week I attended the launch of a new ITV1 drama series also called The Jury.

Or what in the big screen world would be called The Jury 2.

Peter’s follow up to his original series.

He was there along with leading lady Julie Walters, who plays defence barrister Emma Watts.
