‘Pulse’ Screencaptures & More

Pulse‘ aired yesterday on BBC3 and it’s easy to find a ton of glowing reviews – The Scotsman says it’s “grisly, grimy and intriguing” and could “prove another triumph for BBC3, following the hit show Being Human.” Herald.ie wrote that it’s “a deeply satisfying mixture of suspense and horror set in an NHS hospital”.

If you too, enjoyed the pilot episode and want to help it get picked up for a proper series be sure to leave a comment on the BBC 3 Blog (where you can also re-watch the entire episode). And here’s the Official PULSE Facebook Page.

Hannah who is played to beautiful affect by Claire Foy
- Monstersandcritics.com

Built around the impressively versatile Claire Foy, fresh from sneering up a storm in Going Postal, Pulse aimed at a tricky mix of soap and supernatural and got it pretty much spot on. Caring without being cloying, Foy handled Hannah’s complicated backstory, which involved both a mental breakdown and a break-up (with the creepy Nick), with some aplomb.
- Metro.co.uk

The excellently understated Claire Foy playing trainee doc Hannah. … Good performances, most notably from Claire Foy as a traumatised trainee doctor, Hannah Carter, resuming her studies following the death of her mother.
- The Guardian

Foy makes for a convincing heroine, and plays the part with the right mix of vulnerability and determination to prevent her character from sliding into the typical woman-in-peril clichés that the horror genre so frequently falls back on.
- Den of Geek

What is absolutely certain is this is a first-rate cast, headed by Claire Foy of Little Dorrit fame as junior doctor Hannah.
- Mirror.co.uk

So what does the writer, Paul Cornell think of Claire as the heroine in his show? “The way the emotion works through that cast is tremendous. Claire Foy, who appears in almost every frame, did such an amazing job, and it’s wonderful to see.” (source) “The casting here is excellent, though. Claire Foy really does heavy lifting. It’s her quest, she’s the centre for us.” (source)

Here’s an interview where Claire herself talks about ‘Pulse‘:

Assuming ‘Pulse‘ gets commissioned by the BBC for a full series we’ll be looking at transmitting in late March or early April of 2011 – according to its producer Simon Heath (source). Don’t forget to leave your positive comments on the BBC 3 Blog.

Claire Foy

You might recognise her from: Little Dorrit.
What’s next? Going Postal, Season of the Witch, Homeland.
Stellar moment: “A highlight of 2009 for me was working on Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage — he’s eccentric but also such a lovely, genuine man. I’m gutted that I’ll be working and won’t be able to go to the premiere.”

Full-Length Trailer for Season of the Witch

Following up on the teaser trailer that appeared online last month, Lionsgate has released a full-length trailer for Season of the Witch, which hits theatres on March 19, 2010.

In Season of the Witch, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.

A priest (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham) and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.

When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight’s pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.
