We know from Tom Riley and others on Instagram, that there was a cast read-through for ITV's crime thriller series Dark Heart last Friday, with a few interesting new cast members revealed. It seems poor Tom only gets to have a few days off after Dry Powder completed its run at the Hampstead Theatre, before filming starts on the 6 part series. According to writer Chris Lang on Twitter this morning, shooting begins tomorrow.

In advance of the broadcast of Dark Heart on Wednesday night, many TV magazines have shared interviews with Tom. Since they are all very similar, I am guessing most of them were from the same round table / press day. Interesting how different yesterday's interview answers in the Daily Express compare to today's shared by What's On TV! And there is more detail to the reveal about maintaining body fat for Da Vinci's Demons.

The ITV press pack promoting the broadcast of Dark Heart on 9th November, can be shared from today. The pack has a few new stills of Tom as DI Wagstaffe, and an interview with him, which reveals that he is about to film (or is possibly now filming), a comedy drama series. No more details about Tom's new job are shared in the interview or online anywhere that I can find, and I have hunted everywhere.
