With this witty and thoroughly engaging rom-com, director Daniel Jerome Gill’s debut film charts the relationship between Liam (Josh Whitehouse) and Natalie (Freya Mavor). Initially drawn together by their shared love for music, ten years later they are struggling to see what they saw in each other. As they start to split their music library, the soundtrack of their relationship keeps on pulling them back together. A real warm-hearted charmer of a film nicely adapted by Philip Gawthorne from his award-winning play and subsequent short film.

Ghost Light: cast and crew day out

Photos of Tom Riley with some of the cast and crew of 'Ghost Light' have been shared on Instagram by co-star Danielle Campbell. It seems they all attended the Apple Fest in Massachusetts, while on a break from filming comedy-horror 'Ghost Light', directed by John Stimpson.  

Danielle also shared a few videos to her Instagram stories, including one of Tom dancing as a pipe band played 'Scotland the Brave' (something I never thought I would ever type). 

 

Dark Heart: news of ITV commissioned series

For those UK fans who loved Tom Riley as Wagstaffe in ITV Encore's Dark Heart, but were disappointed that no DVD was ever released, there is some fantastic news! According to writer Chris Lang's website, ITV has commisioned a six episode series of Dark Heart, which will begin filming in February 2018, with the series to be shown on the main ITV channel. 

“Dark Heart” Chris’s adaptation of the first of Adam Creed’s ‘Staffe’ novels (which was Encore’s most sucessful new drama of 2016) has now been commissioned as a six part series on ITV1. Filming will begin in February 2018, with Tom Riley, Charlotte Riley and Miranda Raison all returning to reprise their roles.

Dark Heart was broadcast as a 120 minute 'pilot' episode on ITV Encore in November 2016 - an adaptation of Adam Creed's crime thriller novel 'Suffer The Children', with Tom brilliant as DI William Wagstaffe. Unfortunately the show is not available on DVD, iTunes or on any catch up service at the moment.
