Gentleman Jack begins on BBC1 in May. It is created and written by Sally Wainwright and Daniel was hugely proud to be involved in the project. It follows Anne Lister, owner of Shibden Hall in Halifax who kept many diaries, much in code, that help illuminate Anne’s life as a prominent woman, lesbian and landowner in the early 1800s. Suranne Jones stars as Anne Lister (pictured with Sophie Rundle as Ann Walker). Daniel plays Dr Kenny, the family doctor.

He continues to narrate Peter James’ series of Inspector Roy Grace novels, he reads a second installment of the Jaap Rykel detective series for Penguin and he has recorded his second CJ Sansom book, the unabridged version of Spanish Civil War drama, Winter in Madrid. All three are riveting!
