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.

I replaced the captures of the first trailer with some without the Sky Logo and added captures of the extended ‘Going Postal‘ trailer that can be watched on the official site or below the cut. Also added some new stills. Apparently, ‘Going Postal‘ is scheduled to air on May 30.

The author of the book, Terry Pratchett, described Adora Belle Dearheart, Claire’s character, as “a kind of Bogart heroine” in a recent interview with The Independent.
