WHAT I’M WATCHING…ADRIAN DUNBARI’ve just been working in ‘Australia, so I’m behind with TV,” says the Northern Ireland-born actor, who plays Superintendent Ted Hastings in Line of Duty. “But first on my list is the second series of Derry Girls. The first series was brilliant. I’ve seen – and been in – a lot of shows about the Troubles, but this one is so original.’Line of Duty is coming back! — page 10LUCY WORSLEYI am lapping up a Netflix series ‘called Dirty John, dramatising a real-life stalker/gold-digger nightmare man that a woman met on a dating app,” says the historian. “Also, like the rest of the human race, I am excited for more bent coppers in the new Line of Duty.

AL MURRAY’S LITERARY ROOTSAl Murray, the comedian and great-great-great-grandson of the Victorian writer William Makepeace Thackeray, will finally play his illustrious ancestor, RT can reveal. He will star as the author-narrator in a Radio 4 adaptation of Thackeray’s 1848 novel Vanity Fair. “The book could have been written last week,” Murray says. “It’s an extraordinary modern novel, about celebrity and social climbing and class. It’s still really funny and fresh. There’s no point treating it as a Victorian novel about the Georgian era. That’s not what it was in the first place; it was a scalpel-sharp satire of the time and it’s transferable to now … and it’s funny.” It will air later this year.IS JENNA ABOUT TO ABDICATE?Keeping with the era, ITV’s period romp Victoria (see page 16) returns…

animal antics

Behind every great moment in ITV’s Corfu-set drama The Durrells is a great animal — or in some cases some very naughty ones. Here are some of the furry and feathered stars of the drama, which returns later this year. The animals are overseen by Liz Thornton from A1 Animals (seen above, holding the owl) who has worked on all four series. By her estimation around 100 animals have worked on the show including flamingos, a buzzard, an otter and a particularly starry bird called Steven Seagull. It’s quite appropriate that the pelican “Peli-can” (who works with co-star “Peli-can’t”) is centre stage in our picture. Both performers have proved the most diva-ish, we gather.“Our animals are always impeccably behaved but two pelicans are always the naughtiest,” laughs Thornton. “They’re not being…

‘let’s look at climate change’

AMBER WARNINGWarmer weather may seem welcome, but does it spell future problems?WE ALL KNOW that the climate of the British Isles – and the world – is changing and warming up. This February we have seen record daytime temperatures across England, Wales and Scotland and it is now generally recognised that a great deal of the change is due to humans putting more and more of the greenhouse gas CO2 into the atmosphere.There is still debate on the subject, of course. But where the sceptics go wrong is that they confuse weather and climate. Of course you can have a very cold spell in the winter in the United Kingdom, as we did last year, by being visited by the so-called “Beast of the East”. But that’s weather, not climate.…

WHAT WE WATCHEDThis week we met three big personalities who had survived heart attacks — entertainer Arthur Askey, cricketer Ken Barrington and TV journalist James Cameron. Askey’s coronary followed soon after he cracked some ribs in a trapdoor accident at the London Palladium.“I thought about suing over what had happened, in which case I would probably have got a lump sum and had to sit on my bottom for the rest of my life,” said the comedian, who was finally felled by circulatory problems in 1982. Barrington eventually died of a heart attack in 1981 and Cameron died from a stroke in 1985.WHAT YOU SAIDA BBC1 profile of Kenyan president Jomo Kenyatta by historian and Labour peer Lord Chalfont prompted G Lambert from Windermere in the Lake District to take…
