Peter Capaldi to reunite with Mark Gatiss in ghost drama

OHMYGOSSIP — Peter Capaldi will reunite with Mark Gatiss in a new ghost story drama.
The former ‘Doctor Who’ star will team up with the sci-fi show’s writer in ‘Martin’s Close’, a 30-minute drama based on M.R. James’ story of the same name which will air on BBC Four this Christmas.
Mark – who will direct the show – said: “After the delightful success of last year’s ‘The Dead Room’, it’s a fantastic privilege to continue the tradition of the Christmas Ghost story on BBC Four – and what better than one of my favourite stories by the master of them all, M.R. James?”
The story sees John Martin on trial for his life in front of the infamous “hanging judge” George Jeffreys, but the girl he is accused of killing has been seen alive.
Peter will portray Dolben in the drama, with Wilf Scolding set to play John, and Elliot Levey will star as the judge.
Simon Williams will take on the role of Stanton, Sara Crowe will portray Sarah, James Holmes will star as Snell, and Fisayo Akinade is to portray William.
Cassian Harrison, channel editor of BBC Four, said: “I’m delighted to welcome another of Mark Gatiss’ ghostly escapades to BBC Four after the success of last year’s ‘The Dead Room’.
“With a stellar cast and a plot to send a shiver down the most resolute of spines, this is a guaranteed treat for the winter nights.”
Last year, Mark wrote and directed ‘The Dead Room’ for BBC Four, with Simon Callow starring as the main character.
It came after Mark’s other BBC ghost stories, ‘Crooked House’ and ‘The Tractate Middoth’ aired in 2008 and 2013 respectively.
