Bronagh is back on our screens

Celebrated Derry actress and musician Bronagh Gallagher will make a welcome return to the small screen this week in the second series of thrilling BBC crime drama The Field of Blood, beginning on BBC One at 9pm this Thursday.

Based on Denise Mina’s Paddy Meehan books, The Field of Blood this time stars actress Katherine Kelly (better known to some as Becky in Coronation Street), David Morrissey, Jayd Johnson and Ford Kiernan. Kelly plays ambitious new editor-in-chief, a no-nonsense woman in a man’s world, determined to bring the newspaper into the modern age, against editor Murray Devlin’s (Morrissey, The Walking Dead) wishes and against the backdrop of the miner’s strike. The Field of Blood is named after the field that Judas Iscariot bought with the thirty pieces of silver he won by betraying Jesus.

Tune in this Thursday on BBC One at 9pm.
