BBC Two’s one-off drama Marvellous will premiere on Thursday September 25th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Penned by Peter Bowker, Marvellous tells the story of Baldwin, a man with learning difficulties from the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme. He has been a great many things in his life including a circus clown, a lay preacher and kit man at Stoke City, where he once famously led the City attack against Aston Villa in a testimonial match. Above all he is a man who defies definition in a world in which we seem intent on labelling each other. The one-off drama is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions & Fifty Fathoms and stars Toby Jones (Wayward Pines) and Gemma Jones (Harry Potter).
