The Great Fire

London burst into flames on the 2nd September 1666. The Great Fire is now a sweeping four-part television drama starring Andrew Buchan, Charles Dance, Jack Huston and Rose Leslie. Devised and written by Tom Bradby, author and screenwriter of James Marsh's classic movie Shadow Dancer, it will be a highlight of ITV's autumn season.

As Political Editor of ITV News, Tom is no stranger to the hot seat. Having escaped the rising temperatures of the Scottish independence debate and the party conference season, he will be gearing up to spearhead coverage of the 2015 general election campaign, during the course of which he will also be presenting his current affairs programme, The Agenda, twice weekly.

He has a number of other screenplays moving towards production, and is putting the finishing touches to a new thriller - his first since 2009 - which tells the story of a discredited ex-MI6 operative searching for his vanished son in the turbulent heart of Tehran's 1950s coup.
