BBC Two today announces Collateral, a gripping, high-octane thriller set in present day London, from pre-eminent playwright David Hare and starring Academy-Award nominee Carey Mulligan (An Education, The Great Gatsby, Suffragette).
It was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content.
The ensemble cast will also include John Simm (Life On Mars, State Of Play), Nicola Walker (Spooks, Last Tango In Halifax), and Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Penny Dreadful) who most recently won multiple awards for her on-stage role in Yerma at the Young Vic. Acclaimed director SJ Clarkson (Dexter, Jessica Jones, Love Nina, Toast) will helm.
Set over the course of four days, the four-part drama explores the spiraling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man. Refusing to accept this is a random act of senseless violence, tough and single-minded Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie (Mulligan) is determined to discover if there is a darker truth.
Politician David Mars (Simm) becomes instantly embroiled in the drama through his turbulent relationship with his troubled and unpredictable ex Karen (Piper). While Jane Oliver (Walker), a compassionate vicar, struggles to conceal her affair with the only witness to the crime. Hare’s electrifying writing acts as a moving spotlight, asking crucial questions about the state of modern Britain.

She’s been a pop star, a sci-fi pin-up, a celebrated television actress, and has two Olivier nominations under her belt. There’s definitely no pigeonholing Billie Piper. InStyle chatted to her about her penchant for playing females she “loves to hate”, her love affair with London and why her latest co-star, Riz Ahmed, is a “triple threat”.
Billie is currently promoting her new film City Of Tiny Lights, in which she stars opposite man of the moment, Riz Ahmed. It’s a gritty West London-set thriller, which spoke to the city-loving actress enough to draw her back to the big screen after 12 years away.
That’s not to say she’s had any down time, following a string of roles in TV hits like Doctor Who, Secret Diary Of A Call Girl and Penny Dreadful, she completed a run of Yerma last year, and was lauded for her titular role as a woman driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child. It’s a palpably draining role for anyone watching, but the fearless actress is going back for more, with a second sold out run set to start at The Young Vic in July.

Also today, Billie attended The Olivier Awards Nominees Luncheon, 33 HQ photos have been added to the gallery, doesn’t she look stunning!
“The nomination feels amazing. It gets better every time I hear it. I’m delighted about it. Given the content of the play and the reaction people had with it and spoke to me about, to then have the potential to be awarded for it, it doesn’t get better than that.” – Billie on her Olivier nomination.
