Roald Dahl and Beatrix Potter are coming to our living rooms this Christmas, with new Sky drama Roald & Beatrix: The Tail of the Curious Mouse.
The star-studded drama features Dawn French as Beatrix Potter, Harry Tayler as the young Roald Dahl, Jessica Hynes as Roald’s mother Sofie, Rob Brydon as Beatrix’s husband William Heelis, Nina Sosanya as publisher Anne Landy, Bill Bailey as a Bona Fide Gent, as well as Alison Steadman and Nick Mohammed.
It is inspired by the true story of when a six-year old boy set off on a big adventure to meet his favourite author, Beatrix Potter. It’s a magical story of what can happen when you are brave enough to follow your dreams.
Produced by Hartswood Films (Sherlock, Dracula) for Sky Studios, Roald & Beatrix: The Tail of the Curious Mouse will air on Sky One and NOW at 8.15pm on Christmas Eve. Here’s the trailer:
