The Last Post - Alison Laithwaite (Jessica Raine)

The Last Post

The Last Post is a six-part original drama, created by Peter Moffat (The Night Of, The Village) for BBC One & Amazon.

Directed by Jonny Campbell (A Casual Vacancy, Westworld) and Miranda Bowen (Women in Love), The Last Post unfolds at the fag-end of The British Empire: Aden, 1965.

The series centres on a unit of Royal Military Police officers and their families. For the men, their job is two-fold: half soldiers and half policemen who face constant insurgency. Danger is everywhere. Hand grenades and mines are a constant threat. But The Last Post is as much about the pressures and excitements of being married to the British Army in a dangerous part of the world, where the order of the 50s is fading, and the Sixties are starting to swing.

Danger, heat and glamour. Sniper attacks, sexual liberation, gin & tonic, polka dot bikinis and sun loungers at the BP beach club, Strangers In The Night, death in the desert, drinking and smoking like there's no tomorrow, frying eggs on the bonnets of Land Rovers, prized copies of Vogue, the politics of occupier and occupied, love and war a long way from home.

Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife, Wolf Hall), Stephen Campbell Moore (Goodbye Christopher Robin, The Child In Time), Jessie Buckley (War and Peace), Tom Glynn-Carney (Dunkirk) and Essie Davis (The Babadook) head up the cast. The Last Post is Executive Produced by Margery Bone and Elwen Rowlands for Bonafide, and Mark Pybus and George Faber for The Forge, and was broadcast on BBC One in the UK and will be available worldwide on Amazon, from December 22nd 2017 .

Undercover

With a cast featuring BAFTA award winner Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie) and Sarah Alexander (Green Wing, Coupling), Undercover is the story of traffic policeman Chris (Rigby) – a neurotic, over analytical, metrosexual who is also an undercover policeman in a vicious Armenian crime family called the Sarkissians.

Undercover was originated by writers Sacha Alexander, who also stars as crime boss Ara, and Newcastle-born writer Andrew Milligan and co written by Mark Staheli. Co produced with Baby Cow Television for UKTV’s Dave

Nosferatu in Love

Nosferatu in Love is a tragicomic single drama written and directed by Bafta-winning Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Frank, Wolf Hall) and starring Mark Strong (Kingsman, Sherlock Holmes) for Sky Arts.

The film, which premièred on Sky in May 2014, was shot in Czech Republic receiving the support of the Czech State Cinematography Fund. It went on to win numerous awards including best film at LA Shorts Fest and Raindance Festival.

The film follows a tormented actor (Strong) playing Nosferatu in a film. While struggling with his inner demons, he finds out his young wife is leaving him, leading him to rebel against his director and escape to a nearby Czech village. Here, he teams up with a local petty crook, with unexpected, absurdist consequences. Loss and failure transform into a redemption of sorts for the two of them.
