New adaptation of Howard’s End has its London premiere

The BBC’s latest screen version of E.M.Forster’s Howard’s End had it London premiere this week, and Deadline nabbed some great interviews with the team behind this new adaptation. Hayley Atwell, who plays lead character Margaret Schlegel, was there to talk about her character and the influences that she’s considered from the iconic 1993 film version of the novel. It’s a great quick read.

Not long to go for this period drama either – it will air on the 12th November at 9pm on BBC One. Prepare to stay indoors a lot in the coming weeks!

Check in with us next Sunday for another news roundup.
