From Bletchley Park YouTube –

Bletchley Park played a major role in WW2, producing secret intelligence which had a direct and profound influence on the outcome of the war. Those working the Hut 6 night shift were amongst the first to learn of Germany’s surrender. On VE Day 1945 a memo was sent out from the Stewart Graham Menzies, MI6 chief and Director-General of the Government Code and Cypher School, thanking the Codebreakers and staff whose fundamental work during the war should never be forgotten. We asked actor Matthew Goode, who played Hugh Alexander in The Imitation Game, if he would read the memo as a message of thanks to the Bletchley Park Veterans and the resilience of our country through the most difficult of times. He kindly obliged. There was also a letter from John Herival, dated 10 July 1945, to his team of Codebreakers. Herivel was one of the talented mathematicians recruited early in the war and stayed at Bletchley Park from January 1940 until October 1945. Though reminding the staff at Bletchley Park of the Official Secrets Act, he acknowledges the vital work they did and, with remarkable foresight, suggests that one day in the future their story would be told. Bletchley Park Trust would like to thank Matthew Goode for this kind and generous gesture. #BletchleyParkVEDay75 #VEDay75

I have started adding captures to the gallery at last.  Episodes 1 & 2 of Dancing on the Edge have been added to the gallery which saw Matthew play the role of Stanley.  I have also added a new interview i have found on the BBC website.


The series follows a black jazz band’s experiences in London in the 1930s. Made up of talented musicians and managed by the compassionate yet short-tempered Wesley Holt, the band gets a gig at the Imperial Hotel, by the way of the cunning journalist, Stanley Mitchell. They prove to be a hit, and become a success at the hotel. Countless aristocrats—and the Royal Family—ask the band to play at parties. The media rush to interview and photograph the band—including the ambitious American businessman, Walter Masterson and his enthusiastic employee, Julian. The band’s success spirals, they’re being offered record deals. But tragedy strikes, setting off a chain of events that may wreck the band’s career.

It’s November 30, 1962. Native Brit George Falconer, an English professor at a Los Angeles area college, is finding it difficult to cope with life. Jim, his personal partner of sixteen years, died in a car accident eight months earlier when he was visiting with family. Jim’s family were not going to tell George of the death or accident, let alone allow him to attend the funeral. This day, George has decided to get his affairs in order before he will commit suicide that evening. As he routinely and fastidiously prepares for the suicide and post suicide, George reminisces about his life with Jim. But George spends this day with various people, who see a man sadder than usual and who affect his own thoughts about what he is going to do.

MyAnna Buring and Matthew Goode are to star in a new drama for ITV1.

The Poison Tree will follow Karen Clarke (Buring), a haunted woman who goes to extraordinary lengths to protect her family.

After encountering the glamorous Biba (Ophelia Lovibond) and her handsome brother Rex (Watchmen actor Goode), Karen is drawn into their “tragic family history” and their “long summer of love” soon becomes a “nightmare”.

The two-part drama – based on the novel by Erin Kelly – has been written by Emilia di Girolamo (Law & Order: UK).

“We are delighted to be working with STV and Emilia di Girolamo on this intriguing and emotional thriller,” said ITV’s Steve November. “Erin Kelly’s novel is rich and absorbing and is perfectly suited to ITV.”

Margaret Enefer – Head of Drama for STV Productions – added: “We are thrilled to be bringing this dark and bewitching psychological thriller to life on screen for ITV1. We’re certain it will grip viewers from start to finish.”

The Poison Tree will enter production this summer and will air on ITV1 later this year.
