The actor, who appeared in the earlier this week, in Concert for Diana, joins ex-Eastenders’ Martine McCutcheon in the Cornwall-shot series. In the drama, Donovan’s character plays McCutcheon’s ex-lover, whose “whose complicated affairs are played out amongst teenage angst, family loyalties and tested friendships.”
Interestingly, the show will have a cross-over with new comedy Moving Wallpaper whose characters are supposedly the film crew behind Echo Beach who are “taken to the brink of insanity by their irrepressible producer.”
It’s a cute idea from ITV, cross-pollinating one show to prop up another. It might end up confusing the audience, but may also make for must-see TV. I love that they are thinking outside the square here, and I still miss that fabulous soap parody Grosse Point from Darren Star.
Donovan wasn’t so flash at the concert this week, but he is actually a good actor and his work in MDA and with the Melbourne Theatre Company have demonstrated he’s come a long way. These pics suggest he hasn’t looked this good in ages.
