“Someone once said a happy ending depends on when you decide to stop your story…then again, when you realize your story is not yet over, you are only at the end of the beginning.”
Such is the premise for the BBC film “The Night Watch,” Richard Laxton’s historical drama for the BBC set in 1947 post-World War II London. The ending is just the beginning as the story of four young people exploring their sexuality unfolds through a series of progressive flashbacks taking them into the dark nights of the Nazi air raids of London.

The TOD’S Art Plus Drama Party at the Whitechapel Gallery that Claire Foy attended on March 24, 2011 was an evening of live performance, art and drama. The evening featured specially commissioned scripts written by artists including: Lynda Benglis, Ryan Gander, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Barbara Kruger, and Lawrence Weiner. Performed by actors including Benedick Blythe, Helen Bradbury, Claire Foy, Tom Hiddleston, Jake Maskall, Hywel Morgan, Juliet Oldfield, Maxine Peake, Jonathan Pryce and Ashley Walters, directed by Rupert Goold. Ticket sales (£145 per ticket) as well as the auction of works by different artists benefit the Whitechapel Gallery’s Education and Community Programme that works with over 3,000 children and 30 diverse community groups each year.
Harper’s Bazaar was instrumental in pairing actors to scripts for the live performances. In their article about the evening they had nothing but praise for Claire Foy’s performance:
I also loved Claire Foy, who performed a challenging monologue by Lawrence Weiner. She had quite the most incredible presence and made me think of a young Emma Thompson.
And apparently Maxine Peake raved similarly about Claire Foy to Harper’s Bazaar and said that she’s an old friend of hers from the BBC’s Little Dorrit.
