Well, it pays the rent, doesn’t it?

Andrea Riseborough (above) will star in Thursday night’s BBC4 drama, The Long Road to Finchley, a period drama about Margaret Thatcher’s rise to power. Andrea is a strange choice for the role (though I’m sure she’ll be good), especially since the last time we saw her she was playing the part of a Labour minister’s researcher in the awful Party Animals.

Makes you wonder who might be cast in future political dramas based on real life characters. David Mitchell as David Cameron, anyone?

  4. Thin ice doesn’t begin to describe it, mate
