AUSTRALIA: The Minor Character To Premiere On BBC First



Premium Australian channel BBC First will be airing the Sky Arts drama series Playhouse Presents from next Monday. The stunning collection of thought-provoking, touching and often funny original plays, showcases a wealth of acting, directing and writing talent in a star-studded collection of contemporary short dramas.

First up is The Minor Character a short drama starring David Tennant adapted by Will Self from his own short story of the same title. David stars as Will, an artist who observes life in minute detail. His dry commentary ranges from witty engagement to a casual erosive critique of his social set: the urban-suburban, middle-class landscape of his middle-aged friends. Over a series of dinners, drinks and parties, we witness the shifting sands of friendship, marriage, love and lust, and the complexity and corruptness of London circles through Will's eyes. The Minor Character also stars Lucy Cohu, Mark Bonnar and Richard McCabe. 
 
Originally airing on Sky Arts in the UK in April 2012, the drama premieres in Australia on BBC First on Monday 5th January at 8.30pm.
