It’s a few months now since we heard the news that J.K Rowling’s detective series featuring Cormoran Strike was to be turned into a BBC drama and after months of waiting (not to mention the wait for the new book in the series), the first trailer for The Cuckoo’s Calling is finally here!
This week the BBC has announced that the first in the miniseries will air on Sunday 26th August at 9:05pm and if you’re not so patiently waiting to see if the show matches up to the books then here’s that first trailer:
Tom Burke stars as Cormoran Strike, and while he’s a bit smaller than he’s described in the book, he seems to nail the character pretty well in the trailer.

How familiar is this… you see the title flash up of one of your favourite books and you realise it’s being made into a film. You sigh. Will they ruin it? Will they cut out huge chunks? Will the actors look right? Will I wish they’d never made the film and ruined the book? Read More
The Hexagonal Phase is arriving in 2018 on BBC Radio 4 for the 40th anniversary of the popular book/radio play/film/television series. The radio play is based on And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer, with additional material by Douglas Adams, and adapted and directed by Dirk Maggs.
And Another Thing… was commissioned in 2009 by the Douglas Adams Estate to mark the 30th anniversary of the first novel. It is set to include unpublished material by Douglas Adams, sourced from notebooks full of Hitchiker’s notes that have been kept safe in the library at St. John’s College, Cambridge.
The Feed is Windo’s debut novel, and unusually it’s only just been released as a book. The post-apocalyptic novel was released in the UK on 25th January but isn’t due for USA release until March this year. Early reviews are positive, and positive enough for Amazon and Virgin Media to put their money where their proverbial mouths are, putting into production a 10-part drama set in London.
