Aug. 27 (UPI) — Extras and Agatha Raisin actress Ashley Jensen is defined to star in the BBC adaptation of Andrew O’Hagan’s novel, Mayflies.

Peter Mackie Burns is directing the two-part drama, which is filmed this fall on location in Scotland.

The cast may also include Martin Compston from TYPE OF Duty and Vigil, and Tony Curran whose credits include Doctor Who and Outlaw King.

“Andrew’s novel is nostalgic, poignant and moving, carrying out a lifelong friendship and exploring the optimism of youth and the realities of later life,” producer Claire Mundell said in a statement Thursday. “It honestly depicts the bonds and boundaries of a shared life and values.”
