Colin to play the lead in The Living and the Dead

Armagh’s Colin Morgan has been confirmed to take the lead in a new BBC prime time supernatural drama.
Filming has started in the West Country on The Living And The Dead, which will consist of six hour long episodes written by Ashley Pharoah and Matthew Graham, co-creators and writers of such audience-pleasers as Life On Mars, Ashes To Ashes and Eternal Law.
Colin, a former student of the Integrated College Dungannon, began his TV career in the lead role of Merlin for the BBC.
At the heart of this small community is Nathan Appleby – played by Colin – a reluctant gentleman farmer who is obsessed with proving the existence of the afterlife.
In this new and original drama this complex and compelling man will investigate hauntings, paranormal happenings, and ghostly visitations, encouraged by the Society for Psychical Research.
But as these terrifying investigations become ever more frequent and ever more scary, Nathan starts to see and hear disturbing things that he simply cannot have imagined. Will Nathan’s interest in the occult begin to threaten his family, his livelihood and even his sanity?
The Living and the Dead also stars Charlotte Spencer (Glue, Stonemouth, Line Of Duty), as Charlotte Appleby, Nathan’s wife.
Faith Penhale, Head of BBC Wales Drama Production, said the partnership of Colin and Charlotte is ideal for the drama.
“Colin Morgan and Charlotte Spencer are two of Britain’s most exciting and talented stars and I can’t think of anyone better to bring to life Nathan and Charlotte Appleby, the beautifully drawn couple at the heart of Ashley’s bold and brilliant new series for BBC One,” she said.
