TV Preview: Elizabeth is Missing

A preview of the feature length BBC drama followed by a Q+A with actor Glenda Jackson, director Aisling Walsh, writer Andrea Gibb and executive producer Sarah Brown.
Adapted from Emma Healey’s novel, Elizabeth Is Missing combines a gripping mystery with a tender yet unflinching exploration of one woman’s struggle with dementia.
When her best friend Elizabeth goes missing, Maud (Jackson) is convinced that something terrible has happened, and sets out to solve the mystery. But with her dementia worsening, unfinished business unearthed and the past and present starting to merge, Maud’s search takes on a poignant urgency.
Elizabeth Is Missing is a 1×90’ drama written by Andrea Gibb, adapted from Emma Healey’s novel. Executive Producers are Sarah Brown and Andrea Gibb for STV Productions and Gaynor Holmes for BBC One. It will be produced by Chrissy Skinns.
TV Preview: Dial M for Middlesbrough
Friday, 6 December 2019 – 7:00pm
The May Fair Hotel, Stratton Street, London, W1J 8LT
A preview of the series’ feature-length third instalment followed by a Q&A with key cast and crew.
Gold’s UKTV Original Dial M for Middlesbrough sees Gemma (Sian Gibson) and Terry (Johnny Vegas) thrown into jeopardy when their coach breaks down in the middle of a fierce thunderstorm whilst they’re on their way to collect Mildred (Sheila Reid) and Hilda (Georgie Glen) and take them to a funeral in Middlesbrough.
Our intrepid duo are forced to seek refuge in Shady Creek Caravan Park, a mysterious and sinister place that seems to strike a particular terror in an unusually jumpy Gemma. Here we meet an eclectic mix of characters including site owners Evie (Sally Lindsay) and Jed (Phil Davis), extraordinarily clumsy Chef Susan (Joanna Page), Events Manager and ‘90s throwback Darren (Jason Donovan), drop dead gorgeous American tourist Chad (John Macmillan), and long-term park resident Edna (Annette Crosbie).
More recently arrived on the scene are holiday prize-winners (if you can call them that) Phil (Jason Forbes), who struggles to get a word in while his other half Penny (Ambreen Razia) struggles to stop words coming out, and excitable birdwatchers Neil (Mike Wozniak) and Mary (Selina Griffiths), all of whom are causing quite a stir.
