Lord Lucan Drama Marks 40th Anniversary



Skyfall actor Rory Kinnear is to play aristocrat Lord Lucan in a two-part ITV drama.  The show will be marking the 40th anniversary of his mysterious disappearance. The 7th Earl of Lucan vanished after the death of his children’s nanny, Sandra Rivett, in 1974.


Lucan Drama

ITV has ordered a new two-part drama based on the life of Lord Lucan.

Skyfall’s Rory Kinnear will play the flamboyant aristocrat in Lucan, from Mrs Biggs writer Jeff Pope.

Christopher Eccleston will appear as Lucan’s friend and famed gambling club host John Aspinall.

Michael Gambon has also been cast in the drama, which will chart Lucan’s exploits as a member of the infamous Clermont set and the collapse of his marriage.

Lucan will also explore the murder of Sandra Rivett – nanny to Lucan’s children – and what role the man himself may have played in the crime.

“The story of Lord Lucan continues to mystify and intrigue us,” said ITV’s director of drama commissioning Steve November.

“Jeff’s reputation for award-winning factual drama goes before him, and these new scripts offer a compelling insight into the events surrounding Lucan’s disappearance.”

Lucan will begin shooting in August in and around London.

This sounds like a good drama! Executive producer Francis Hopkinson said the drama would bring “new insight and revelations which will surprise the audience”.

Kinnear, the son of actor Roy, played Bill Tinner in the Bond films Quantum of Solace and Skyfall and can be seen this weekend in Channel 4 drama Southcliffe.
