Terence Beesley finishes shooting on the BBC’s new adaptation of War and Peace and moves onto Series III of The Musketeers where he will film the role of General Lantier whilst Natasha Gordon joins Series III of Line of Duty which Lisa Palfrey is already filming.
New series coming up include Cuffs, Tiger Aspects fast paced new cop show for the BBC in which Thomas Coombes has landed the guest role and Jericho, a new prime time series for ITV about the building of the railways during the nineteenth century’s industrial revolution in which Kent Riley teams up once more with ‘Cilla’ director Paul Whittinton.
