I think Radio Times may now officially be my favourite magazine. Thanks to them we got our first look at Liam Ward and I am so excited for this to be aired. It was announced that it would air at the end of 2018, likely before the Christmas period on BBC Two for those of us in the UK. High quality scans and the textless still have been added to the gallery

The Americans actor Matthew Rhys and 50 Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan are to lead the cast in a version of Eugene McCabe’s Death and Nightingales for BBC Two

The drama about love, betrayal, deception and revenge will reunite Dornan with The Fall creator Allan Cubbitt, who will adapt the three-part series and also serve as director

They will be joined by Red Rock star Ann Skelly for the adaption, which is set in the countryside of Fermanagh in 1885 over a tense 24-hour period, when neighbours observe each other and inform

Skelly will play Beth Winters, who is celebrating her 25th birthday and has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Rhys)

Dornan said: “I’m thrilled to be reunited with Allan and his brilliant scripts to play such an intriguing character like Liam Ward and to return to Northern Ireland and BBC Two.”
