Half Broken Things to be televised

From the 4RFV website:
Granada International has acquired a brand new drama produced by Festival Film & TV for international distribution.

Starring Penelope Wilton ('Five Days', 'Doctor Who', 'Falling'), 'Half Broken Things' is a tense and disturbing two hour film commissioned by ITV.

Half Broken Things is a one off drama adapted from the award winning Morag Joss thriller by Alan Whiting, creator and writer of the hit series 'Kingdom'. Daniel Mays and Sinead Matthews also star, with Tim Fywell directing.
'Half Broken Things' won the CWA Silver Dagger.

I was right with you until it came to being by the writer of "Kingdom". Oh lordy no, please!!! Yawn. Better retitle it "Wholly Dull Things" then ...

That's great news. It's a really good book, even if it seems quite similar to Rendell's Fatal Inversion in places. I didn't have an actress in mind when I was reading it - but Penelope Wilton fits the bill very well. I look forward to seeing it.
