Can you tell us a little bit about the show?

A Good Girls Guide to Murder is based on Holly Jackson’s brilliant book, about a young woman, Pip, who’s in her last phase of childhood. She’s just about to leave school and is working out who she is. At the same time, she wants to open up a closed case about the death of Andie Bell. She feels that she will be the one to find out who really did it.

What do you think makes A Good Girls Guide to Murder right for a television adaptation?

You’re gripped from both the beginning of page one of the book and the script. There are so many twists and turns. It’s a combination of really exciting plot and a lovely coming of age story. That hits a real sweet spot.

All Star Cast Announced For Noel Fielding's Dick Turpin

By Bruce Dessau on 2/8/2023

The full cast has been announcement for the upcoming comedy-adventure series about Dick Turpin starring Noel Fielding as the legendary highwayman.

The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin will stream on Apple TV+.

Turpin always believed he was destined for something bigger than a life chopping meat in his dad’s butcher’s shop. And he was right. When he inadvertently becomes leader of the Essex Gang, a notorious bunch of outlaws, he realises he’s found his calling. Sure, he might be a peace-loving vegan who believes in panache over pistols, but what he lacks in hard-core highway skills he makes up for in imagination, invention and incredibly pointy purple shoes.

In this irreverent retelling, “The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin,” Dick is the most famous, but least likely of highway robbers, whose success is defined mostly by his charm, showmanship and great hair. Together with his gang of loveable rogues, Dick rides the highs and lows of celebrity – and does what he can to escape the clutches of the Thief Taker General.

The series is created by Claire Downes, Ian Jarvis and Stuart Lane, and written by Jon Brittain, Richard Naylor, Claire Downes, Ian Jarvis and Stuart Lane, with Noel Fielding. Streaming details will be confirmed at a later date.

Starring alongside Fielding are:

    • Duayne Boachie (“Hollyoaks,” “Blue Story”) as Honesty Courage, one of Dick’s Essex Gang. Honesty lives in the moment, it’s just not the same moment as everyone else. While admittedly sometimes slow on the uptake in high stress situations, he can be prone to moments of brilliant, blinding insight.
    • Hugh Bonneville (Emmy, Golden Globe & SAG Awards winner) (“The Gold,” “Paddington,” “W1A”) as Jonathan Wilde, has spent years climbing the greasy pole to become Thief Taker General. An utterly corrupt lawman with a vacuum where his morals should live, Wilde has a ferocious appetite to expand his criminal enterprise.
    • Asim Chaudhry (BAFTA TV Award and RTS Award winning “People Just Do Nothing,” “Black Mirror,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”) as Craig the Warlock, is petrified of being caught performing magic without a licence. He’s attempted to pass his official warlock exams multiple times and racked up hundreds of major errors.
    • Tamsin Greig (Olivier Awards winner and BAFTA TV Awards nominated) (“Green Wing,” “Episodes,” “Friday Night Dinner”) as Lady Helen Gwinear, is the elected leader of the Syndicate, a union of organized crime groups with fingers in every pie from illicit eel husbandry to diamond smuggling. A working mother who fought her way up the greasy pole of the crime underworld, Helen is an uncompromising and brutal boss.
    • Mark Heap (“Friday Night Dinner,” “Green Wing”) as John Turpin, Hempstead’s irascible butcher. Lover of meat; hater of vegetables. He hides his affection for only son, Dick, under a layer of cynicism so deep not even a meat cleaver could penetrate it.
    • Ellie White (“’Wonka,” “Stath Lets Flats”) as Nell Brazier, one of Dick’s Essex Gang, has dreamed of being a highwayman since she was a little girl. Brought up in luxury, Nell threw away dresses for ditches and ran away at sixteen to make it on her own.
    • Joe Wilkinson (“After Life,” “The Cockfields”) as Geoffrey the Gaoler, the ultimate nihilist, who will tout his mediocre services to anyone in need of a jailer, security guard or general dogsbody – no questions asked.
    • Marc Wootton (British Comedy Award and Rose d’Or Award winning “My New Best Friend,” “Nativity!,” TV series “La La Land”) as Moose Pleck, one of Dick’s Essex Gang, is a terrifying looking man-mountain; but on the inside he’s just a big old softie. After years of being terrorised by various brutal gang leaders, he’s convinced he’s found his soulmate in Dick.


  • Additional series regulars are Michael Fielding as Benny Turpin, Kiri Flaherty as Little Karen, Samuel Leakey as Christopher Wilde, Geoff McGivern as Lord Rookwood, and Dolly Wells as Eliza Bean.
  • Guest stars include Laura Checkley as Sandra, Greg Davies as Leslie Duvall, Jessica Hynes as The Reddlehag, Paul Kaye as Ratclyff, Guz Khan as Gow, Diane Morgan as Maureen, Connor Swindells as Tommy Silversides, and David Threlfall as Tom King.
