Imelda Staunton and Timothy Spall start over in trailer for Finding Your Feet

Author: Zehra Phelan

The feel-good trailer for upcoming British production, Finding Your Feet starring Imelda Staunton, proves there is still life to be lived in your Golden Years.

Teaming up a cast of Imelda Staunton, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley, John Sessions, Josie Lawrence and David Hayman, director Richard Loncraine has brought together the cream of veteran wholesome comedy project that oozes grand old British values in Finding Your Feet.

The trailer focuses on the middle-class Sandra (Staunton) as she forces herself on her sister Bif (Imrie), who lives on a council estate, in an attempt to start her life over after she discovers her husband’s betrayal in having an affair with her best friend. Almost strangers as sisters, the pair are given the opportunity to get to know each other again via geriatric dance classes, dating and travel. It’s a tale of self-discovery and learning to

How to name a character – raid your inbox!

How do writers come up with character names? Some raid their emails, some plunder their school days – and some take inspiration from Psycho. Stephen Poliakoff, Abi Morgan and more talk to David Jays about the hunt for the perfect moniker

"I've never had a character called Jonathan," muses Stephen Poliakoff. "I don't like the name. But I've used Richard twice." The writer of nearly 50 plays and screenplays, including last year's Dancing on the Edge for the BBC, has come up with countless fictional names in the course of a career that has spanned almost five decades – from the disaffected waifs of his early plays to figures rubbing shoulders with 20th-century history in recent work. So how does he do it? "The name comes out of the character," he says. "I often see them, but just don't know what to call them. And if I give them the wrong name, I

Stephen Poliakoff on Dancing on the Edge: 'I can come across as arrogant'

He has unparalleled creative freedom within the BBC. But, as Stephen Poliakoff's latest lavish drama reaches our screens, what does he make of his reputation for being a control freak?

'I'm quite sure," Stephen Poliakoff giggles, "there are people within the BBC who run down the corridors blocking their ears when they see me coming." His reputation certainly precedes him – a great galloping colossus of media folklore, variously casting the writer as a genius, control freak, force of nature or diva, sometimes all at the same time. Descriptions of his appearance err towards cartoonish caricature – dishevelled, wild-haired, fidgety, like a mad professor who has accidentally electrocuted himself – only adding to the mythology of a wild man of letters. But to everyone about to fall in love with his latest drama, Poliakoff may well soon be at real risk of becoming a national treasure.

Sheila Burrell obituary

A striking stage presence for more than 60 years and a familiar face on TV

Sheila Burrell, who has died aged 89 after a long illness, was a cousin of Laurence Olivier, and a similarly distinctive and fiery actor with a broad, open face, high cheekbones and expressive eyes. She stood at only 5ft 5ins but could fill the widest stage and hold the largest audience. Her voice was a mezzo marvel, kittenish or growling and, in later life, acquired the viscosity and vintage of an old ruby port, matured after years of experience.

In a career spanning more than 60 years, she made her name as a wild, red-headed Barbara Allen (subject of the famous ballad) in Peter Brook's 1949 production of Dark of the Moon (Ambassadors theatre), an American pot-boiler about the seduction of a lusty girl by a witch boy and the hysterical reaction of her local community.

The role remained one of her favourites,
