A Place of Execution - casting details

Further to my post in January that Val McDermid's A Place of Execution was to be televised, news is that it will star Juliet Stevenson and Greg Wise:
Filming has begun on a drama based on Val McDermid's top-selling novel A Place of Execution - the tale of the mystery surrounding a missing 13-year-old girl.

Juliet Stevenson (Truly Madly Deeply) plays a high-flying TV Reporter, Catherine Heathcote, who is making a film based on the disappearance of schoolgirl, Alison Carter (Poppy Goodburn), back in 1963. The film tells the story of George Bennett (Lee Ingleby) the young Detective Inspector who worked relentlessly on the case, and delves into the lives of Alison’s mother Ruth (Emma Cunniffe), step-father Hawkin (Greg Wise), and the locals in the tight-knit village of Scardale.

Sounds good, I'll have to remember to look out for this -- or maybe I'll be lucky and Euro Crime will have a heads-up. Unless this is the really gruesome one we were hearing about from CFR - that one sounds a bit strong.

Ive bee filmng on this and it does look superb with fantastic locations and costumes, the actors are of incredible caliber, however its just the cutbacks thanks to coastal productions that may effect the quality of the final product!!! fr those we can thank Robson Green
