This Monday, at 9pm on ITV, you can catch acting stalwarts Derek Jacobi and Ian McKellan reprising their roles as the quarrelling couple Stuart and Freddie. Supported by a stellar cast – Frances de la Tour as Violet and Celia Imrie as her visiting sister Lillian – the first episode sees Violet attempt to pass off Stuart as her husband in a bid to deceive the estranged Lillian. There are 6 episodes in this second series which was worked on by Peter Edwards – DoP and one of our sound trainees, Liam Clayton.
Next week sees the return of two very different series – comedy Vicious and action drama Strike Back.
If you fancy something more action-packed and brimming with chase sequences, then turn to Sky1 on Wednesday at 9pm for the fifth season of Strike Back. In the first of ten episodes protagonists Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) set out to rescue the kidnapped daughter of Thailand’s British ambassador, played by Tim McInnerny. Two of our client editors – Ian Erskine and Adam Trotman – have worked on several of the episodes as well as one of our trainee assistant editors Izzy Curry.
