"Though Whishaw and Grint will be the box-office draws, it is Mays who is the lynchpin of the new production. "Jez and I have adored Daniel for many years. As far as I'm concerned, there are certain actors who can speak Butterworth. It then became about whether we could build a team around him."

25-09-2011 - BAFTA 'Public Enemies' Screening
BAFTA have announced a screening of Public Enemies on Monday October 10th, followed by a Q&A with writer Tony Marchant and Director Dearbhla Walsh.

Public Enemies is a new, BBC One three-part drama created by multi-award-winning writer Tony Marchant.

28 year old Eddie (Daniel Mays) is released from prison after serving ten years for murder. He attempts to settle back into his old community - a community that doesn't want him. One of the few people he can talk to is his probation officer, Paula (Anna Friel), a woman who's only recently come back to work after a suspension: one of her offenders murdered again while under her supervision.

Paula is not responsible for the murder for which she has been scapegoated; Eddie did not commit the crime for which he served ten years. But the overstretched system says they must take the blame. And there's nothing they can do to change that. Maybe their only hope of redemption is with each other? The stories of Eddie and Paula are complex, gripping, surprising and moving, while the writing powerfully explores the issue of rehabilitation and whether as a society we really believe in it. Directed by Dearbhla Walsh (The Silence, Little Dorrit, Funland) and written by Tony Marchant (The Mark of Cain, Recovery, Holding On), Public Enemies is a Tiger Aspect production for BBC One.

Public booking is via Ticketweb.
