Save The Cheese!

The BBC gets all the attention when it comes to historical dramas, but ITV gives as good as they get. Take, for instance, their upcoming series The Great Fire. The series is set against the four day long fire that ripped through 1666 London, gutting the Roman sections of the ancient city, but killing very few.

Written by Tom Bradby, the series will star Broadchurch actor Andrew Buchan as Thomas Farriner, whose bakery on Pudding Lane is where the fire began. The series also stars Game of Thrones alumni Leslie Rose as Farriner's sister-in-law, and Charles Dance as Lord Denton, emissary to King Charles II, who will be played by Jack Huston. The series will last four episodes, and is expected to broadcast later this year.
