CHURCHILLS_SECRET_40

“EVERYONE has their time.”

Churchill’s Secret (ITV, 8pm this Sunday) is a classic.

One of those films you will remember for a very long time to come.

With some of the finest performances you could wish to see.

In an astonishing story about, perhaps, our greatest Briton.

It was my pleasure to write the cast and production interviews for ITV.

Visiting the set last year during filming.

For some fascinating conversations with Michael Gambon, Lindsay Duncan, Romola Garai, Bill Paterson, Matthew Macfadyen and executive producer David Aukin.

(Spoiler alert: Do not read further if you have yet to watch the final episode)

“HARRY Pearce…”

The poignant last ever episode of Spooks has just finished.

There will be no more.

Nicola Walker summed up my feelings in an interview this week when she said:

“The storyline for this last series is the right ending for the show.

“I don’t know if it’s going to please everybody but it’s a very clever and grown up end point.”

TV Bonham Carter 3
Matthew Macfadyen as Hugh Pollock

SADLY, Matthew Macfadyen has no plans to release his latest performance as a single.

The former Spooks, Pride and Prejudice, Little Dorrit and Criminal Justice star plays Enid Blyton’s first husband Hugh Pollock in Enid (BBC4, 9pm tomorrow).

At one stage singing along to the Flanagan and Allen song Run Rabbit Run.

But the iTunes store will just have to do without Matthew’s rendition.
