Food luvvies

A glitzy preview session at BAFTA for new drama McMafia, from the book by former BBC correspondent Misha Glenny. Star James Norton was grilled by Kirsty Wark, and, according to the Mail, complained about an ‘eight-month shoot where catering was thin on the ground because it’s the BBC’.

Later he offered apologies to DG Tony Hall. ‘No need' said Hall, ‘That’s exactly the message I want out there.’

But it's not just the Beeb offering thin gruel. In October, Norton was filming a ITV Christmas special of Grantchester (from the books by BBC Radio arts commissioner James Runcie). A day's shooting at the back gates of St Catharine's College, Cambridge, saw the cast sharing lunch with the students in Hall.
