Following the success of 2012's radio adaptation of the Modesty Blaise novel A Taste For Death, it has been announced that Radio 4 have recently completed work on another Modesty adventure!
This time around Stef Penney has adapted the debut novel by Peter O'Donnell. The play was recorded last week at the BBC Cardiff studios and is scheduled for a daily broadcast commencing 16th June.
Former Casualty star and downright stunner Daphne Alexander returns to the role of Modesty and is joined once again by veteran actor Alun Armstrong as Sir Gerald Tarrant and former EastEnder Alex Ferns as McWhirter. This time around Modesty's knife weilding cockney sidekick, Willie Garvin, is played by Kill List star Neil Maskell.
Ewan Bailey - who I watched just last night in the Kenneth Williams biopic Fantabulosa! in which he played Joe Orton's lover and killer Kenneth Halliwell - will play Modesty's nemesis, the crime kingpin Gabriel.
