Production has started on the BBC Two drama.
“To have such a distinguished cast taking part in the drama is testament to the strength and quality of Adam and Declan’s scripts. We are honoured to be telling this astonishing, powerful and moving story on the BBC.” – Lucy Richer, Executive Producer for the BBC
Filming has begun this week on Salisbury, a three-part factual drama for BBC Two exploring the impact the 2018 Novichok poisonings had on the local community.
Leading the cast is Anne-Marie Duff, who is joined by Rafe Spall, Mark Addy, Annabel Scholey, Johnny Harris and MyAnna Buring.
Additional cast include Ron Cook, Stella Gonet, Faye McKeever, Kimberley Nixon and Duncan Pow.
Written by Adam Patterson and Declan Lawn, the drama tells the remarkable story of how ordinary people and public services reacted to a crisis on their doorstep, displaying extraordinary heroism as their city became the focus of an unprecedented national emergency.
“This is a story we all think we know, but the truth of what people experienced and of the local response to the chemical attack, is shocking and humbling in equal measure.” – Laurence Bowen, Executive Producer for Dancing Ledge Productions
