Pippa Harris interview: 'People quite liked being made to cry'

The co-founder of Neal Street Productions on the success of Call the Midwife and The Hollow Crown

"It's all been a bit overwhelming actually," says the drama producer Pippa Harris happily, reflecting on response to The Hollow Crown, BBC2's Shakespeare tetralogy that came to a close on Saturday. Made by Neal Street Productions, the indie Harris founded almost a decade ago with her childhood friend Sam Mendes and former Donmar Warehouse executive producer Caro Newling, the films have attracted widespread praise for their ambition and quality.

While the BBC considers commissioning further Shakespeare adaptations, Neal Street is not short of projects, including the late Nora Ephron's last film script. Set up in 2003 primarily for film and theatre productions, the indie is also behind Call the Midwife, BBC1's hit Sunday night drama based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, that over six weeks increased its audience to more than 11 million.

Tom Hiddleston talks Shakepeare’s Henry and Thor's Loki

Tom Hiddleston talks Shakepeare’s Henry and Thor's Loki
Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of Prince Hal in the BBC’s The Hollow Crown is currently being slathered with praise, and we've spoken to The Avengers actor about his latest Shakespearean role. The Hollow Crown is BBC Two’s ambitious collection of Shakespeare’s history plays, comprising Richard II, Henry IV Parts 1 & 2, and Henry V. Hiddleston is Prince Hal, a central player who goes on to become – Spoiler! – Henry V. When we recently caught up with the Asgardian outcast, he spoke about the challenges of...

Tom Hiddleston Is F*cking Hot And Doing Impressions

So he wasn't that hot in The Avengers (Loki) but he's super hot in real life. He's kind of like Michael Fassbender, only without those pesky rumors of girlfriend beating (which may or may not be true, I just writes what I hears). This is Tom Hiddleston ladies and he can do an impression with the best of them.

Just look at that smile! So adorbs. Then the accent is added in and I'm getting more heated than a broken radiator in July. Oh child, someone get me a ice pack...For My Pants.

You've seen this guy before in Midnight In Paris (he played Fitzgerald), War Horse and the upcoming television movie of Shakespeare's Henry V. So depsite being funny, charming, English, in one of the most successful franchises of all time, he's also a good actor.

Just goes to show that famous people are really that much better than you.

Watch Loki From The Avengers Perform The Sh*t Out Of A Henry V Monologue

Here’s Tom Hiddleston, aka Loki from Thor and The Avengers, appearing on Fuse’s Hoppus On Music to obligingly performing one of his favorite Shakespearean monologues, the “God for Harry, England, and Saint George” speech from Henry V. Hiddleston starts out the monologue as if he’s politely going along with the request, then quickly gets Super into it; good thing he didn’t deliver this speech in The Avengers, or evil would’ve been too riled-up to be defeated. Actually, I haven’t seen The Avengers yet, so it’s very likely that this happens (it’s the 9th after-credits scene, right before they reveal the next Spider-Man after Andrew Garfield): (via @haulihan)

BBC to screen four Shakespeare history plays after 30-year gap

Sam Mendes' films of Henry plays and Richard II to include Jeremy Irons, Julie Walters, Michelle Dockery and John Hurt

It is more than 30 years since the BBC last screened a major cycle of Shakespeare's history plays. So it is little surprise that this summer's four new films from the corporation have attracted the cream of British acting and directing talent – from Jeremy Irons and Ben Whisaw to Simon Russell Beale and Sir Richard Eyre.

With the Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes as executive producer, the BBC will screen Richard II, Henry IV parts I and II, and Henry V, from late June on BBC2 as part of the Cultural Olympiad.

Mendes' partner at Neal Street Productions, Pippa Harris, said the combination of the Queen's diamond jubilee and the Olympics made 2012 the perfect opportunity to revisit the histories: "There are so many themes in these four plays which seem fitting

We have heard plenty about Titanic and the new series of Doctor Who but what are the other shows to watch out for in 2012?

Line of Duty. Our Friends in the North star Gina McKee seems to pick her parts carefully and Line of Duty is already receiving rave reviews from critics at advance screenings. The drama centers around an investigation involving corrupt cops. The writer claims that members of the Metropolitan Police Force were less than helpful when he was researching the show and their actions have only served to heighten the excitement surrounding Line of Duty.

Literary events in 2012

More Dickens and even more Shakespeare, but also new novels from Toni Morrison, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, plus exciting new voices – 2012's literary highlights

January

10 Charles Dickens's The Mystery of Edwin Drood, starring Matthew Rhys and Tamzin Merchant, begins – and, unlike the book, ends – on BBC2.

13 Michael Morpurgo's much-loved children's novel War Horse, a long-running favourite at the National and on Broadway, gets the Hollywood treatment. A tearjerking saga about a young soldier and his horse – it was only a matter of time before it was Spielberged.

16 Ts Eliot prize. Despite withdrawals from the shortlist over objections to a hedge fund's sponsorship of the prize, the Eliot remains the UK's premier poetry award, and its eve-of-event reading is always a treat. This year's shortlist includes Daljit Nagra, Carol Ann Duffy and John Burnside.

20 Release of film of Coriolanus, an Orson Wellesian effort directed by and starring Ralph Fiennes,
