Click here to read a guardian.co.uk article from June 22, 2009. It talks about when Collision might be aired.

An excerpt:

The presentation was led by ITV's director of television, channels and online, Peter Fincham, and managing director of commercial operations, Rupert Howell.

ITV's presentation, the first complete season of new shows under Fincham since he joined in May last year, included a panel of the broadcaster's talent fielding questions including This Morning co-host Philip Schofield, the Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan and the sports presenter Steve Ryder.

Fincham made much of the upcoming five-part drama series Collision, by the Foyle's War writer Anthony Horowitz, which stars Paul McGann and Douglas Henshall.

Media agency executives attending the meeting were told that Collision, Fincham's first new independent drama commission, from Greenlit Rights, would be aired on consecutive nights. The theory is that the show will attract a bigger audience, and be more attractive to advertisers, if it can be built over multiple nights as opposed to airing once a week.

"This presentation was important for Fincham, this season really is the first that features his commissions kicking in," said one media agency executive who attended the presentation. "It is the first 'Fincham' effect, you could say, the big thing they are hanging their hopes on this autumn is Collision."

Soooon!

And it's so hard for me to look at that picture of Paul in all-black. He needs to do that more often ... or not as often, as it's highly distracting to me ... Embarassed *cough*

Excellent discovery, belladog! Thanks for sharing the link. Smile

From the Masterpiece schedule:
NOV 15 – 22 Collision

At first, a major road accident appears to be nothing more than a terrible incident that affects a group of people who have never met before. But beyond the chaotic landscape of corpses and crumpled cars, a series of invisible dramas unfold—from government cover-ups, to torn relationships, to murder.

Starring Douglas Henshall (Primeval), Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead) and Phil Davis (Bleak House).

Nov 15 Part 1 (120 minutes)
Nov 22 Part 2 (90 minutes)

*All episodes can be viewed online for a limited time at pbs.org/masterpiece

Cat if you hear it's on the ABC, like shout out to me. I always miss stuff on TV these days. It comes from getting fed up and living off DVDs instead. lol

From teletext.co.uk

McGann on new drama role

Paul McGann told me about his new role in ITV's new drama Collision, and said it's so good even he might watch it.

"I'm tempted to actually watch this one just to find out what happens. I very rarely watch my own things, but this one I might actually sit down and watch it, because it looks good," he said.

If you read the script Paul, you'll know what happens. No need to watch it then, is there?
