Heads Up #7: Fallen Angel and Others

Three things to mention in the coming week that all happen to be on the Drama Channel.

Next Saturday is the second part of ITV's three-part drama Fallen Angel originally shown in 2007.  This part was the only one with any nudity which comes from both Cara Horgan and Niamh Cusack.

Also on this week is the start of BBC2's 1987 series of adaptations of Dorothy L Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey stories starring Edward Petherbridge.  The first story Strong Poison has some known nudity from an art model.  All I have to go on for this is a clip from an ITV3 broadcast of it in the mid-2000s.  She is referred to as "Imogen" in the clip in which she is sitting posing for a woman artist with her left breast exposed while the woman artist is chatting to Lord Peter - I am told she was uncredited.  It is a three-part story and I don't know which episode it occurs in - it may be this week or in a subsequent episode over the next two weeks.

Unfortunately since it is being shown at 8pm it is quite possible the scene will be edited out or adjusted to avoid the topless bit.  If that happens then I suppose this can be taken instead as a "Missing But Not Forgotten" entry.

UPDATE (16/Jan/2015)
The above scene was included intact.  It occured right at the start of episode 2 (shown on 15th Jan). She was indeed uncredited.

Also on this week is the final episode of In Deep.  In this episode Karianne Henderson has an almost, but not-quite, topless scene in an open robe when she attempts to clumsily seduce Stephen Tompkinson.

This two-part story is being shown as a single feature-length episode - the scene originally occurred in the first part.
