“This place is magical. We’re going to be proper tourists when we finish”MARK CHARNOCK SOAP Emmerdale MON-FRI / ITV / TIMES VARY The beach at Newcastle in Northern Ireland has never been so busy on a cold February morning – but then, it’s not every day you see Emmerdale’s Paddy and Marlon bickering on the promenade. As the crowd gathers, TV Times joins stars Dominic Brunt and Mark Charnock as they film some very special episodes. ‘It’s so exciting; Dominic and I are like a pair of kids,’ says Mark, 50. ‘This place is just magical. They film Game of Thrones up in the mountains here and it’s Narnia in the CS Lewis books. We arrived here really early, just as the mist was falling off the mountain. I looked at it and it was hard…

However, with its mix of comedy, genuine talent and a few colourful characters, along with comedian Rob Beckett as host and Spice Girl Geri Horner as head of The 100, the show became a word-of-mouth hit. And by the time eventual winner Michael Rice scooped the £50,000 prize, the whole nation…

‘i’m good at keeping secrets!’

DRAMA Baptiste SUNDAY / BBC1 / 9PM Jessica Raine first cycled her way on to our screens seven years ago in her role as compassionate nurse Jenny Lee in Call the Midwife. Since then, she has become one of TV’s most versatile stars, with roles in everything from thriller Line of Duty to historical drama Wolf Hall. Now, she’s branching out again to tackle one of her most challenging parts to date as she makes her debut in BBC1 thriller Baptiste this week. Jessica plays Genevieve Taylor, a no-nonsense investigator with the EU’s law enforcement agency Europol, who causes ructions when she tries to commandeer Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) and his work on a Romanian trafficking gang. Thankfully, in real life, Jessica, 36, who’s married to Mr Selfridge star Tom Goodman-Hill, couldn’t be friendlier when TV Times catches…
