Some noise, and some silence…
Ah that lovely rumour mill is working overtime again. Some of you might already have heard about this, but rumours of David’s current/next project are now starting to surface…
The noisiest of these seems to be in relation to a new project, simply titled United, which the BBC is apparently co-producing, based on the story of the Munich Air Disaster of 1958. There’s an article here about it, but it’s terribly short. This rumour seems to be persisting though, based on a couple of pieces of supporting evidence.
Firstly, it’s claimed Production Designer Edward Thomas (who has done work before on Doctor Who, SJA, Torchwood and Sherlock) is already on board, and there’s some evidence to back this part up. Click here to see a current copy of what is apparently his CV, on record with the Creative Media Management website, which does indeed list United right at the top and states it features DT.
Secondly, it is apparently set to be directed by James Strong (who has also worked on DW and Torchwood) and again there’s some evidence to back this up. Click here to see his “client details” on the United Agents website. Again you will notice United listed near the top. Incidentally though, while you’re there, scroll to the bottom and look in the Shorts section for something called Talking To Strangers and read the Notes bit on the right hand side.
And now, for something much quieter, silent in fact. Those of you in the UK will likely have heard of this already, but it’s certainly worth a mention…
The Royal British Legion is a charitable organisation that raises funds to assist forces veterans and their families. As most will know, they sell the poppies you see everywhere for Remembrance Day, but this year they’ve added something a little different to their fund raising efforts. The above clip comes from a 2 minute Silent Single, which has been supported by many stars, sports personalities and politicians, including DT. The hope is that not only will it raise funds but also raise awareness amongst younger people who may not know of the work they do.
If you would like to order a copy of the single, you can do so here, for just £1.00, and you can get more general information about the Royal British Legion, and the work they do, here. There’s also a facebook page set up to promote it, as you can see from the following screen grab, which you are welcome to use to promote this wonderful idea.
