On 24th May I attended the cast and crew screening of the first two episodes of Close to the Enemy, a private event that had the feeling of a gala. Drinks, canap├ęs, speeches and two hours of gripping drama. I may have been in it, but I was transfixed!

It begins transmission on Thursday, 10th November at 9pm on BBC2 (repeated on Friday 11th November at 11.05pm and available on BBC iPlayer).

StarGirl for Pixie Films will now be released in early 2017. CGI and Special Effects can be a fairly tall order for even the most well-healed studios; how much more so for small independents like Pixie! However, producer Mani Roberts tells me that work will be complete by the end of November 2016. Watch this space!
