Shadow in the North

Postby ch1ch1 » Wed Mar 07, 2007 2:24 pm

I was reading Julian's biog on the Landscape for Weapons page of the National Theatre website when I spotted Phillip Pullman's Shadow in the North (the follow-up to The Ruby in the Smoke) listed as one of his [soon-to-be] TV credits (it's said to be in production according to IMDb and also stars Billie Piper). He's not on the cast list so I hope it's a sizeable role.

Billie Piper stars as feisty Victorian heroine Sally Lockhart.
Billie Piper heads an all-star cast, including Julian Rhind-Tutt, JJ Feild, Jared Harris, Matt Smith, John Standing and Hayley Atwell, in The Shadow In The North. This second book in a quartet by novelist Philip Pullman charts the adventures of Sally Lockhart, a feisty, young Victorian heroine (Piper).

Bafta Award-winning Adrian Hodges (Charles II, Rome, The Lost World and Pullman's first novel in the series, The Ruby In The Smoke), has adapted Pullman's intricate and cleverly woven plot and set it in the heart of Victorian London.

An elderly lady loses her money on an investment; a conjuror is pursued by thugs; and a clairvoyant sees a brutal murder in a forest and a glass coffin, then whispers the name of the richest man in Europe. These seemingly unconnected events set Sally Lockhart on the trail of an evil far more awful than she could ever imagine: the Hopkinson Self-Regulator, a super-weapon in the hands of Scandinavian madman Axel Bellmann.

Once again, Pullman's much-loved and fearless heroine embarks on a mission – this time to find out why her elderly client's investment crashed and what links the clairvoyant's murderous vision to the rich industrialist, Bellmann. As Sally closes in on the truth, it becomes devastatingly clear that her life will never be the same again.

The cast also includes David Harewood, Dona Croll, Georgia King, Crispin Redman and Lyndsey Marshal.

I was just about to post something on this! Seems we're going to be spoilt for Julian this Xmas! :D
I don't know why but something tells me he's playing the "Scandinavian madman"...

Think I just spotted Julian in this, as part of the BBC's Christmas trailer! He looks like he's playing the part of the magician. :D

I spotted this too Rosie...why do they have to cover his lovely face in white make-up all the time! I agree, looks like he is the magician, and he is the only one that got to speak in the whole advert!

Hells bells!! Those screencaps are stunning - thanks FQ :foru:
I'm not sure whether I'm more excited about the Julian (and Doctor Who) goodness on TV over Xmas, or just plain terrified about that makeup. Is it wrong that I'm annoyed he can wear eyeliner better than me? :D

Got back from Euro disney on friday night and this was one of the first things I saw. What a welcome home!!

Best of all my small adorable nephew also saw it at his house and instantly shouted it's Julian lets ring Aunty Emm. Is that cute or does it mean that my obsession is starting to effect the family!!

I've only just realised that they've clearly given him contacts to make his eyes that dark...makes him look even more odd! :?
Lol.

Thanks FQ! :wink:

MW - no probs - it'd be my pleasure (any excuse to legitimately spend time gazing at that face... :D ). I'll have a go tomorrow as I'm at work at the mo and haven't got any of the software here. And shouldn't really be on the net at all... *whistles and looks at the sky innocently*.

Meanwhile - 'here's some I made earlier '...
