Filming has begun in Birmingham on BBC One’s brand new drama, By Any Means, from Red Planet Pictures – the makers of hit series Death In Paradise (starring Andrew’s former cast mate from Primeval, Ben Miller) .

The stellar ensemble cast is headed up by Warren Brown (Luther, Good Cop), Shelley Conn (Mistresses, Marchlands), Gina McKee (The Borgias, In The Loop) and Andrew.

This original crime drama, created by a team of writers led by Tony Jordan (Hustle, Life On Mars), follows a clandestine police department living on the edge and playing the criminal elite at their own game. Living in the shadows and treading the fine line of the law, the maverick team bridge the grey area between the letter of the law and true justice.

Led by the sharp and elusive Jack Quinn (Brown), alongside straight-talking Jessica Jones (Conn) and digital whizz-kid Thomas Tomkins (Pottsy), the shadowy and brilliant team will stop at nothing to fight fire with fire. Using insider tip-offs from the mysterious Helen Barlow (McKee), the team weave a web of cunning and deception, so when the law can’t take the criminal down, it’s up to them to deliver their unwary targets into the arms of justice.

Other names who will appear in the series include Elliot Knight (Sinbad), John Henshaw (South Riding), Keith Allen (Robin Hood), Kate Dickie (Game Of Thrones), Neil Maskell (Utopia) and Martin Jarvis (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo).

Belinda Campbell, Executive Producer for Red Planet Pictures, said: “By Any Means is a gripping and edgy drama, wonderfully crafted by our talented writing team. We’re delighted to have such a strong line-up of talent both on and off screen to translate these intricate plots and characters. With the action taking place on the cusp of the law, it provides the perfect premise for dramatic scenes, surprise twists and turns in the plot, as well as brilliantly complex and rich characters.”

Polly Hill, BBC Head of Independent Drama, said: “It’s great to see such a strong cast come together to form this original team in By Any Means. Tony has created a maverick team which we think our BBC One audience will enjoy and this cast will brilliantly bring that to screen.”

By Any Means is a Red Planet Pictures production for the BBC. The series was penned by a writing team comprising of Tony Jordan, Richard Zajdlic, James Payne, Jeff Povey and Richard Lazarus whose combined credits include Strike Back, New Tricks, This Life, Silent Witness, EastEnders and Ashes To Ashes amongst other projects.

Tony Jordan and Belinda Campbell are executive producers for Red Planet Pictures and Polly Hill for BBC One.  Lead director for the series is Charles Palmer (Doctor Who); it is produced by Tim Key (Death In Paradise) and commissioned by Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC One, and Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning.

So much fun from Andrew and his sister Sarah Jane. Enjoy!

 





PJ April 20th, 2013

Andrew has a couple of new projects in the works.

First up Dracula

The father of all vampires rises in this provocative new drama starring Golden Globe® winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) as one of the world’s most iconic characters.

It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who crossed him centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

From the producers of the critically acclaimed, Emmy Award®-winning hit “Downton Abbey” comes DRACULA, a twisted, sophisticated and provocative take on Bram Stoker’s classic novel, proving that some stories are truly eternal. (source: nbc.com)

Andrew will be playing a character named Gabriel Hood. It is unclear at this time if his character will be in all ten of the episodes or if he’ll just be appearing in one. As he didn’t spend *that* much time recently in Budapest, our guess is probably just another one off appearance. More details to follow as they are available.

Next up

By Any Means

BBC One has given the green-light to a new police drama series titled By Any Means. Produced by Red Planet Pictures – the independent production company behind BBC One’s Death In Paradise – the hour long drama series has been given a six episode order and follows a covert police department that, when the legal system fails, go to any lengths to bring the criminal elite to justice.

Created by a writing team comprised of Tony Jordan, Richard Zajdlic, James Payne, Jeff Povey and Richard Lazarus, By Any Means has been described as a “gritty police drama” which follows police officer Jack Quinn who runs a clandestine police department. Quinn’s shadowy and brilliant team will go about their business, exploiting weaknesses, weaving a web of cunning and deception that leads the unwary target into the arms of justice. Tony Jordan, Belinda Campbell and Poly Holl will executive produce. Casting for the series is currently underway, with production due to commence in 2013.

Speaking of By Any Means, Executive Producer Belinda Campbell said: “By Any Means is a gripping crime drama wonderfully crafted by our talented writing team. With the action taking place on cusp of the law, it provides the perfect premise for dramatic scenes, surprise twists and turns in the plot, as well as brilliantly complex and rich characters.” (source: TVWise)pla

Andrew will be playing Tom Tom in the series. Casting is still underway on the project and as stated above won’t begin production until 2013 with possible transmission early 2015. (Good thing Pottsy’s fans are a patient lot)
