18 August 2014 4:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Joanna Vanderham has been cast in BBC One's The Go-Between , which will form part of its season of classic 20th century literature.

Vanderham, who has appeared in The Paradise, Dancing On The Edge and Banished, will play Marian Maudsley in the film. She will be joined by Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys) as Trimingham, Ben Batt (Shameless) as Ted Burgess and Maleficent's Lesley Manville as Mrs Maudsley.

Jack Hollington will play Leo Colston, the young protagonist of the 90-minute adaptation of LP Hartley's novel.

Joanna Scanlan and Will Mellor for "anarchic" new Channel 4 cop drama

1 August 2014 3:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Joanna Scanlan and Will Mellor will star in Channel 4's "anarchic" new cop drama No Offence.

The eight-part series, from Shameless writer Paul Abbott, will follow an unorthodox team of cops who must hunt down a serial killer.

Alexandra Roach (Utopia), Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Colin Salmon (Arrow) and Paul Ritter (Friday Night Dinner) have also joined the cast.

The team is led by the unquestionably unhinged Di Vivienne Deering (Scanlan), with the impulsive DC Dinah Kowalska (Cassidy) and recently promoted DS Joy Freers (Roach) serving as her right-hand women.

Abbott said: "No Offence is a precinct cop drama. It's also one of the funniest things I've ever been allowed to put together. It doesn't look like anything else.

"No Offence's cake mix is as bipolar as they get - it lurches from jet black laugh-out-loud, into fragile material on the turn of a sixpence.

"Writing three strong female leads is one thing. »

BBC’s ‘Happy Valley’ Concludes Strong Run; Is It The Next ‘Broadchurch’? (Video)

4 June 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Six-part BBC One crime drama Happy Valley hails from Sally Wainwright, the prolific UK TV writer and BAFTA-winning creator of Last Tango In Halifax. The series that has had Britain all abuzz over the past month and a half came to its climactic concludsion Tuesday night and drew 6.18M viewers for a 28% share. The finale, which should rise a fair bit when delayed viewings are included, was the second-highest rated of the run after the April 29 debut episode attracted 7.64M viewers. Over the series, it averaged about 6.9M and consistently won its slot. The contemporary show is being called the best drama of the year and Wainwright has said there is potential for a second season. There is no deal for the first season to air in the U.S. as yet, but it’s easily the kind that could turn up on BBC America or PBS. It could even be remade à la Broadchurch, »
