We are looking forward to seeing our artists on Midwinter of the Spirit which starts 23rd September on ITV.
New three-part drama starring Double BAFTA award-winning actress Anna Maxwell-Martin, who plays Merrily Watkins, a single mother who isn’t your average country vicar. BAFTA winning actor David Threlfall plays Rev Huw Owen, a deliverance ministry tutor and Merrily’s mentor.
Merrily’s newly acquired training has put her on the dark side of the pulpit. She’s become one of the few women priests working as an an exorcist – a job increasingly mistrusted by the modern Church and rarely talked about, and one that puts her faith and family to the test…
Based on the books written by successful novelist, Phil Rickman, and adapted by BAFTA winning screenwriter Stephen Volk (Afterlife, The Awakening, Ghostwatch).
The three part series will also feature Siobhan Finneran (Happy Valley, Downton Abbey, Benidorm), Ben Bailey Smith (The Four O’Clock Club, Law and Order: UK), Leila Mimmack (Home Fires, Becoming Human), Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Frankenstein Chronicles), Simon Trinder (Dalziel and Pascoe, Without You), Oengus MacNamara (Game of Thrones, What If) and David Sterne (Tommy Cooper; Not Like That, Like This).
