The Night Watch TV adaptation date confirmed
The BBC TV adaptation for The Night Watch will be shown on Tuesday 12th July at 9pm, on BBC2.
Starring Anna Maxwell Martin, Jodie Whittaker, Claire Foy and Harry Treadaway, the 90-minute adaptation is already shaping up to be one of the TV events of the year. There has already been a huge amount of coverage, including this set report from the Telegraph which features interviews with Sarah and some of the cast.
Hilary Salmon, Executive Producer, said: "We are very proud to be making this ambitious film for BBC Two, bringing to our audience the untold stories of ordinary people as they struggle to find love and tenderness during the uncertain nights of the London Blitz. Paula's beautiful script has vividly brought to life Sarah Waters' astonishing and revelatory novel. We are delighted with the outstanding cast we've assembled who represent some of the best young talent in the UK today."
The supporting cast includes: Julia Standing played by Anna Wilson-Jones (Hotel Babylon), Reggie played by Liam Garrigan (Holby City), Nancy played by Claudie Blakley (Lark Rise To Candleford) and Mr Mundy played by Kenneth Cranham (Tess Of The D'Urbervilles.)
