‘Number 10’, ‘Your Highness’, ‘The Baker’ DVD release


  • Damian Lewis will again be playing Tory PM Simon Laity in the BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Play Number 10. The political drama will again be serialized in 5 parts with the first episode broadcasting on October 25th at 2:15pm. For information and download links from last year’s series click here.

    A summary of the first episode from the BBC website:

    Simon Laity- the new Tory PM – is trying to enforce across-the-board spending cuts but his ministers have all gone native. Then it’s leaked that he has commissioned a report which calculates the gain to be made by slashing the armed services budget in half. The Chief of General Staff goes ape.

    Meanwhile they are interviewing companies to run the Number 10 coffee bar, and Amjad from Crown Appointments wants Simon to choose a new bishop for Yeovil.

    And then there’s a British woman now married to a suspected senior Al-Qaeda terrorist who has just entered the country. She turns out to be here for an NHS kidney transplant. The hospital goes on strike.

More on Giovanni’s Room


  • The BBC Radio 3 drama Giovanni’s Room will broadcast Sunday, Sept 5th at 6:30pm. The program is 90 minutes long and will be available to listen to live on the BBC Radio 3 page.

    From the BBC website:

    James Baldwin’s classic novel in its world premiere radio production, set in Paris, 1954. When handsome blond American David meets the stunning Giovanni in a “bohemian” Parisian bar, he is swept into a passionate love affair. But David’s fiancé, Hella, returns to Paris and, unable to admit the truth, David pretends the liaison never happened, with calamitous results for all three, especially for Giovanni, whose life descends into murderous tragedy.


  • The Atlantic website has an interesting interview with military advisor Dale Dye who has nice things to say of Damian:

    Which actors really understand what it means to be a soldier?

    Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Damian Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Cruise, Ron Livingston, and Tom Berenger are at the top of my list. There’s just something in their backgrounds or mentalities that makes it easier for them to understand the soldiers’ point of view. All these actors do lots of homework. They listen more than they talk.

    During publicity for Band of Brothers in 2001, Dye also praised Damian saying “He was terrific in training, busted his butt … there’s something in that little ginger shit’s eyes.” 🙂
