norton’s in new drama!

James Norton is a world away from Grantchester’s crime-solving clergyman Sidney Chambers in these first behind-the-scenes shots from new BBC1 true-life drama The Trial of Christine Keeler, based on the notorious 1960s Profumo affair. The photos, taken on location in Bristol, show James, 33, aged up with wrinkles and greying hair at the temples to play osteopath to the stars, Stephen Ward. Meanwhile, Sophie Cookson, best known for the Kingsman films, looks uncannily like her character, party girl Christine Keeler, with her hair styled in a 1960s bouffant. Sophie and James were snapped shooting scenes with Pure’s Anthony Welsh as Christine’s one-time lover, jazz singer Aloysius ‘Lucky’ Gordon.

“Britain has given me a big embrace and I’m glad to give hugs back!” NEW DRAMA Baptiste SUNDAY / BBC1 / 9PM It’s a cold October day, and TV Times is visiting an Antwerp university campus, which today is doubling up as an Amsterdam police station. We’re here to watch filming for Baptiste, BBC1’s much-anticipated spin-off from acclaimed drama The Missing, which sees Tchéky Karyo reprise his role as dedicated French detective Julien Baptiste. In this scene, Baptiste is on his phone and getting irate as he listens to shocking developments about his latest complex case. When the director shouts, ‘Cut,’ Tchéky, who is an absolutely charming interviewee, is anxious that we’ve heard too much!

‘she’s blunt and focused’

You join the cast midway through the series as Europol investigator Genevieve. What’s she like? She’s the head of a team investigating an Eastern European gang. Edward has pulled a thread of this jumper and it’s suddenly coming apart and Genevieve swoops in and pulls rank. She’s blunt, tactless and focused and puts noses out of joint. But she also has a personal agenda… How does Genevieve get on with Baptiste? There’s tension between the new school and the old school – we filmed a fantastic argument yesterday! But they become a team. It is fun playing that with Tchéky – he’s so French, in the warmest way! He’s been living with this character for years, so he knows what he’s doing. Were you a fan of The Missing? Yes, I thought it was excellent…
