Tom Hardy has read several children’s bedtime stories for the BBC run CBeebies channel for small children. The show has a final slot called ‘Book at Bedtime’ and this slot is often filled by celebrity readers. Hardy read the New Year slot, accompanied by his dog Woodstock and then appeared again in 2017. This month, Tom Hardy is back for his final bedtime story and this one will be a tribute to his dog.
‘Woody’ tragically died earlier this year, aged only six and Hardy will be reading his final story in memory of the dog who accompanied him on previous Book at Bedtime shows and various premiers and public appearances.
So on National Dog Day on August 26th, Hardy will dedicate the reading of Fleabag (US – UK), a story about a friendship between a young boy and his dog, to Woody, his best friend. The reading will air on 26th August 2017 and will be available on catch up television for those who missed out.
Given the furore at Tom Hardy’s previous appearances on the show, we can expect this to be popular. Hardy is hot property and mothers especially have enjoyed sitting down and watching the stories along with their children, considering it quite the treat. Each appearance has gone viral, but this final story may just be an emotional experience for quite different experiences as Hardy says goodbye to Woodstock who died in June.
