Matthew Macfadyen's Favourite Hotels (Condé Nast Traveller April 2015)

Matthew Macfadyen spoke to Condé Nast Traveller about his favourite hotels.

An excerpt:


'I stayed here for about five months on a TV shoot. Usually after a few weeks, anywhere, no matter how luxurious, drives me up the wall - just the sameness of it - but this place was so fantastic I would definitely go back for a mini-break. The staff are brilliant and make everything so easy; it's just perfect.' Doubles from about £150

The Enfield Haunting: Coming to Sky Living May 2015

Empire Magazine has an article in its April issue about Sky Living's upcoming spooky The Enfield Haunting which also states that the show will air in May.

Directed by The Killing's Kristoffer Nyholm, Sky Living's three-parter is a reawakening of one of Britain's most notorious paranormal events.  In the summer of 1977 more than 1,500 incidents were witnessed in one home by the press, police and [Timothy] Spall's psychic sleuth, Maurice Grosse.  It is very much, Britain's Amityville.

"The supernatural is always scarier in a normal setting," says Spall. "This isn't a Gothic castle, it's 1970s Enfield...  The story reminds me of a kitchen-sink Crucible: instead of getting rid of the thing, the 'helpers' end up exacerbating it.  The script scared the hell out of me-- I'd be very surprised if the show doesn't do the same."
