The Stage Podcast 65 cover: Claire Foy

Actress Claire Foy, who you may have seen in BBC1’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Little Dorrit, has two new dramas coming to the screen this week.

In Pulse, written by Paul Cornell and one of three new drama pilots for BBC3, she plays student doctor Hannah, who discovers that the training hospital she has returned to after a breakdown is conducting secret, dangerous experiments.

  • Pulse airs on BBC3 at 9pm on Thursday, June 3, but will be available online from Thursday, May 27.
  • For more coverage of BBC3’s drama pilots season, keep an eye on The Stage’s TV blog, TV Today.

On Sky 1, she plays Adora Belle Dearheart in a lavish new adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel, Going Postal.

  • Going Postal is on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD on Sunday May 30 and Monday May 31.
  • For interviews with Foy’s costars Richard Coyle and David Suchet, see this week’s (May 27) issue of The Stage.

Recorded in a sunny beer garden on the edge of Hampstead Heath, we unfortunately encountered a high level of background noise. While most has been filtered out, it’s not been possible to remove it all. Our apologies.
