News – ITV Announce Just Henry Adaptation

ITV have announced they are to adapt Michelle Magorian’s novel, Just Henry to air at Christmas on ITV1…

They describe the show like this: “set in post-Second World War Britain Henry is growing up in a fraught and unsettled household that includes his mother Maureen, stepfather, Uncle Bill, and his paternal grandmother.

Henry is a troubled young man who suffers bad nightmares which everyone puts down to the aftermath of living through a war and the fact that he’s never really got over his father’s death or his mother’s remarriage”.

ITV’s Director of Drama Commissioning Laura Mackie has said: “Just Henry is a really heart-warming script which follows the journey of one boy’s discovery that will change his life, family and friends forever. It’s rich with detail from the post war era and has a very sympathetic and engaging young character at its heart. The film will be a wonderful treat for the Christmas schedule.”

The cast includes Elaine Cassidy as Maureen and Dean Andrews as Uncle Bill.
