Julie Walters is such a legendary actress - who's been in all sorts of beloved films and TV Shows - that it's no surprise she was awarded a BAFTA Fellowship earlier this year. And now, her career will be examined in a new TV show airing tonight (Christmas Eve).
We caught up with Julie recently to chat about her varied career, so read on to find out why she wishes she'd kept something from the Harry Potter set, why slippers with bobbles bring back bad memories, and why she wants to be a Bond villain...

With that, we'd like to re-introduce Brian's commentaries, ripped, as they say, from today's headlines.

Erudite Tfh guru Brian Trenchard-Smith takes a look at yet another artful true crime drama, the 1985 doomed romance "Dance with a Stranger" starring Miranda Richardson in a star-making role. Though the seemingly ubiquitous Albert Pierrepoint doesn’t appear in Mike Newell’s 1985 film about the notorious Ruth Ellis, he’s there in spirit, responsible as he was for Ellis’ execution, the last woman in England to be hanged for murder. Miranda Richardson stars as the star-crossed Ellis and Rupert Everett plays her two-timing lover and eventual victim, David Blakely. »
