‘Going Postal’ Reception

Posted by Mia with 4 Comments

Following the airing of ‘Going Postal‘ on Sunday and Monday the general echo about the Terry Pratchett adaptation is very favourable. Many reviews called it entertaining and great fun and were praising the excellent cast – including Claire Foy – as well as the show’s visuals. And Claire seems to have gained quite a number of new fans according to Twitter.

Claire Foy a sneering delight as Adora Deerheart, the perfect anti-love interest for the perfect anti-hero.

The stellar cast is headed by Richard Coyle as conman-turned- postmaster Moist von Lipwig and Claire Foy as Adora Belle Dearheart.

Claire Foy & Ben Miles, Pulse

Posted by Mia with No Comments

from TV Choice Magazine (UK) / by Tricia Martin

She made her name as Little Dorrit in the star-studded BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens’ story. Now Claire Foy has come bang up to date as Hannah Carter in BBC3’s pilot drama Pulse. A blood-splattered supernatural thriller, it’s a tale of secret medical experiments, cover-ups and a hospital where anything can happen. We caught up with Claire and her co-star Ben Miles to talk about gore and zombies…

Did you have any idea of how gory this was going to be when you read the script?
Claire Foy:
That there was going to be this amount of blood in it? I think we all got our fair amount of blood splattered at us at some point. I don’t know that I approve of gore in general terms. But in this, it’s different.

You only see blood when there are operations. There are no unnecessary spurts of blood. And then when it does happen, it’s not just done for effect. It’s like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe what’s happened’.

Ben Miles: I didn’t get splattered by any blood at all. I felt very left out!

Claire Foy On…

Posted by Mia with No Comments

from the ‘Going Postal‘ Press Pack

Going Postal…
It’s the story of Moist von Lipwig and about him pulling his finger out, really. It’s a very human story, it’s about relationships and you can relate to it; there are a lot of modern references. It’s fantasy, but not a fantasy.

Adora Belle Dearheart…
She’s a badass. She’s hard as nails on the outside and she doesn’t give people much of a chance, but actually, underneath, she’s very vulnerable. She’s had a hard life and she’s a sensitive soul deep down, so there are plenty of moments to play when the mask slips.

Adora works for the Golem Trust and Lipwig’s parole officer is a golem. She’s sort of like a recruitment consultant for them and stands up for their rights. Lipwig wants to learn how to manipulate the golems so that’s when she meets him. After that he’s constantly trying to get a date with her. Both her brother and father have died as the result of a family fortune they lost, and the man she blames for that is Reacher Gilt. She hates him with a passion. It turns out that Lipwig has a plan to bring Gilt down, so that is where it all begins between the two of them…

First look at Hannah in ‘Pulse’

Posted by Mia with 2 Comments

The BBC3 pilot ‘Pulse‘ will air sometime in June and so far the few advance reviews have been very positive. Let’s hope it will get picked up!

The main character, Hannah, like all the best Heroes/heroines has her own inner demons to conquer when’s she’s not busy uncovering that all is not well at St Timothy’s. Her growth from a daughter struggling with her mother’s death and the huge shoes she now has to fill to reluctant heroine feels realistic. It would have been easy to start the episode with a massive info dump to give us her background but instead we are allowed to find out how and why she’s so traumatized as the episode draws on.

Plot Details for ‘Pulse’ Pilot

Posted by Mia with No Comments

At the beginning of the year we posted about Pulse – a BBC3 pilot written by Paul Cornell and starring Claire Foy. I recently came across an official plot synopsis:

St Timothy’s is one of the UK’s top teaching hospitals, home to some of the country’s most promising trainee doctors. But beneath its veneer of medical normality lies a secret network of dangerous experiments pushing back the boundaries of science with potentially horrifying consequences in this one-off 60-minute medical horror drama written by Paul Cornell.

Hannah Carter’s mother was a consultant at the hospital, but died suddenly a year ago. Grief left Hannah (Claire Foy) teetering on the edge, but following a year off, she’s back to resume her training. But Hannah remains fragile, so when she starts glimpsing peculiar events in the hospital and unsettling behavour from her ex-boyfriend and star surgeon Nick (Stephen Campbell Moore), she’s unsure what to believe.

Ignoring the pleas of those around her, Hannah puts her sanity on the line to uncover the truth about the hospital.

First Look at Adora Belle Dearheart

Posted by Mia with No Comments

I added 2 pictures from the upcoming TV movie ‘Going Postal‘ which show Claire Foy as Adora Belle Dearheart. Sky One will be airing this “story of sweet romance and dark revenge set against an ongoing dispute between a traditional postal system and Discworld’s equivalent of the internet” in April 2010. Stay tuned for the exact dates as well as hopefully more and/or better pictures. In the meantime the official plot synopsis:

When life as a travelling con artist catches up with swindler Moist Von Lipwig (Coyle), it looks as though he will face the death penalty. But awarded a last minute reprieve, Lipwig is given one more chance on the condition that he takes up the cursed role of postmaster, and transforms Ankh-Morpork’s decrepit post office. Making an immediate enemy of bloodthirsty tyrant Reacher Gilt (Suchet), Lipwig’s first instinct is to run… until he meets the spellbinding Adora Belle Dearheart (Foy) with whom he falls in love. But what they both are unaware of is the part Lipwig played in the downfall of the Dearheart family. Is their romance forever doomed?

BBC3 gets horror fans’ pulses racing

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

Fans of the horror genre will be pleased to know that BBC3 looks set to give them something scary to enjoy in the dark winter weeks ahead.

At today’s Winter/Spring BBC3 launch, BBC controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson assured me that, as a big fan of horror, I am going to like Pulse, which is written by Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell and stars Claire Foy, who previously starred in Little Dorrit for the BBC.

Pulse, according to the BBC’s blurb, is set in a teaching hospital, which is home to some of the UK’s most promising trainee doctors:

But beneath its veneer of medical normality lies a secret network of dangerous experiments, pushing back the boundaries of science with potentially horrifying consequences

Now, I was a big fan of E4’s Dead Set, which, for a TV series, managed to be pretty gruesome and dark, and really provided for those who like their series a little more on the edgy side.

So I can only hope that BBC3 follows Dead Set’s lead to make sure that Pulse does something similar, and gives horror fans, who I often think are under-served by British television, something to get their teeth stuck in to.

The drama is planned as a one-off at the moment, and will run alongside two other pilots commissioned by BBC3, including a drama called Dappers from Mamma Mia! writer Catherine Johnson, and another from Leo Richardson called Stanley Park.

Neither of these is a horror (although Dappers is about two two single mothers living in Bristol — which sounds scary in itself) and I can only hope that that Pulse proves to be a hit, and that the BBC commission it for a full series.

Foy has already proved herself to be a good actress, so I am sure there will be an appetite among viewers to see more of her, if not more blood and gore.
