  • BBC Radio 4 – Book at Bedtime: The Miniaturist – Episode 1, read by Emilia Fox – 21 July

    What better way to start the week and this grey Monday with the news of a new BBC Radio 4 ‘Book at Bedtime’ series to air from next Monday, 21 July, at 22:45?! :D Here’s some additional info:

    The Miniaturist Episode 1 of 10

    THE MINIATURIST by Jessie Burton

    Read by: Emilia Fox
    When? 21 July, 22:45

    On a cold autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of the Dutch East India Company’s most successful merchant trader : Johannes Brandt. But her lavishly furnished new home is not welcoming, and its inhabitants seem preoccupied with their own secrets. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office which leaves Nella isolated in the grand house on the canal with his sister, the sharp-tongued Marin and Otto and Cornelia their servants as company.

    Nella’s world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist, an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny and intricate creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways.

    But as she starts to receive unexpected and unasked for items for her ‘toy house’ Nella becomes aware that the Brandt household contains unusual secrets and she begins to understand – and fear- the escalating dangers that await them all. In this repressively pious society conformity is all. Neighbours are encouraged to spy on each other, excavating ‘the canker’ of sin. The packages from the mysterious miniaturist begin to reveal chillingly prophetic objects but Nella remains at a loss as to what they all mean.

    Ep. 1 : Eighteen year old Nella Oortman arrives from the country at her husband’s imposing house in Amsterdam. But the welcome is a little less than effusive.

    Emilia Fox will lend her voice to Crackanory’s second series

    Earlier this year we reported that anthology comedy Crackanory would be returning for a second series.

    Series 1 included TVO regulars Sharon Horgan, Kevin Eldon, Tom Meeten, Steve Oram, Alex Kirk and John ‘Willie’ Hopkins on screen, whilst the score for the show was composed by Waen Shepherd and two episodes were directed by Gareth Tunley.

    Like its predecessor, series 2 will be made and broadcast by UK freeview channel Dave, and will feature top drawer British comedians telling Jackanory style stories for grown ups.

    So far, those confirmed for the new series include Vic Reeves, David Mitchell, Meera Syall, Warwick Davies, Ben Miller, Sue Perkins, Johnny Vegas, Ruby Wax – and Katherine Parkinson. Emilia Fox and Simon Callow will lend their voices to the series too, and it’s hoped that a performance by the legend that is Rik Mayall will also be shown.

    Writers for the new series include Yonderland and Mitchell and Webb scriptwriter Toby Davies, Holly Walsh and Kevin Eldon, who will be authoring his second story for the show and will also make an appearance in another tale.

    The new series will air on Dave in the Autumn.

    New article: Pals Olivia Colman and Emilia Fox enjoy a girly day at Wimbledon – 1 July

    Pals Olivia Colman and Emilia Fox headed down to the Jacob’s Creek VIP tent at Wimbledon yesterday for a delicious three-course lunch and wine tasting session, before settling down on Centre Court to watch French Open champions Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal crash spectacularly out of the tournament.

    Marie Claire was lucky enough to blag a seat with the actresses and other VIPs in Jacob’s Creek’s brand new Wimbledon marquee, as they tasted a selection of wines and enjoyed Michelin-starred delicacies, including salmon blinis and, of course, strawberries and cream.

    Looking stunning in a tangerine Hush dress that was perfect for the occasion, Olivia joked, ‘It was the only thing in my wardrobe that was clean!’

    Speaking ahead of the Nadal game, she told us, ‘I love him – because my son looks just like him.’

    Her showbiz friend Emilia Fox looked flawlessly elegant in a Kate Spade dress and Mulberry bag. ‘I debated going for pastels, but thought I couldn’t go wrong with something bold and bright,’ she told us. ‘What a glorious day – what could be nicer than wine tasting and eating strawberries?’

    Strawberries and cream in the Jacob’s Creek marquee

    The pals sat together on Centre Court, and were quick to rush to the aid of a nearby spectator who fainted during the Sharapova match, offering her a sip of their drinks.

    As the actresses enjoyed a spot of high tea back in the marquee afterwards, Olivia laughingly told us that she had found the high-tension match ‘so stressful’, before lamenting that her own tennis career ended abruptly, aged 12. ‘I was great until then,’ she quipped.

    Olivia, we love you.
