John Simm is Moving On

Doctor Who and Life on Mars star John Simm is one of a stellar cast set to appear in the new series BBC One’s acclaimed daytime drama, Moving On.

Created by the superb Jimmy McGovern, Moving On is produced by Colin McKeown at LA Productions.

“We are using the same winning combination again to make 10 new episodes, and securing these big name actors to be part of Moving On shows how brilliantly written the scripts for this second series are.”

He adds: “This new series will continue to explore the thorny contemporary issues of Alzheimer’s, drug co-dependency, adoption, religion and special needs within the community, along with additional family issues such as sibling rivalry, loyalty and friendship.”

Also appearing in the new run is Robert Glenister, known to fans of classic Doctor Who story The Caves of Androzani as Salateen.

Moving On will be Simm’s first non-Doctor Who TV role since departing Life on Mars in 2007.
