Finally some proper news, with actual talented actors! The Tower series 2 is currently filming in an undisclosed part of North West England, and Tamzin Outhwaite (Ridley Road) is joining the cast as Cathy Teel, Niamh Cusack (The Virtues) plays Claire Mills, and Ella Smith (The Nevers) takes the role of DC Elaine Lucas.
The Tower II: Death Message is based on the second book in Kate London's Metropolitan series of novels, and is adapted by screenwriter Patrick Harbinson (Homeland, Fearless, 24, ER) and produced by his company Windhover Films and leading production company, Mammoth Screen.
Patrick Harbinson: "It's a tribute to the quality of Kate's novels and her complex female characters that we have been able to attract these three brilliant actresses to The Tower."
They will join Gemma Whelan who returns to the series to play DS Sarah Collins, Tahirah Sharif, who was recently BAFTA-nominated for her role as PC Lizzie Adama, Jimmy Akingbola as DC Steve Bradshaw, and Emmett J Scanlan as DI Kieran Shaw. Stuart McQuarrie (28 Days Later) also joins the cast in the role of Sarah's new boss, DCI Jim Fedden.
Just when you thought it was safe to take your summer holiday again, the Made in Chelsea gang are descending upon a posh area of Mallorca for a summer like never before, and by that I mean exactly the same as their usual summers in a hot, exclusive area that us normies are either not allowed to go or cant afford.
Seriously, just look at them, bunch of talentless privileged wannabes. Never worked a day in their lives.
The Chelsea toffs will have their staff packing their cases and soaking up the sun in two glamourous villas, paid for by Government Owned Channel 4 and funded by the taxpayer, for a spot of Balearic bliss. But as the series promises the usual pre-determined cocktail of love, laughter and drama, the question is will tensions rise when a mysterious ex-girlfriend re-appears, will relationships be put to the ultimate test and will any old wounds be re-opened? Yes, of course they will, because that is exactly how the writers and producers have planned for.
Sunning it up in Mallorca are a bunch of no names, desperate to become celebrities, here they are not that you really care, unless of course your name is on here:
Olivia Bentley, Miles Nazaire, Emily Blackwell, Maeva D'Ascanio, James Taylor, Ollie Locke-Locke, Gareth Locke-Locke, Julius Cowdrey, Digby Edgley, Tristan Phipps, Ruby Adler, Reza Amiri-Garroussi and Sam Prince.
India Hovenden, Isabella (Issy) Francis-Baum, Willow Day and Malek Amro.
