A living legend of crime writing will take to the Theakston’s stage this July as Lynda La Plante talks about her extraordinary life and writing career. After graduating as an actor from RADA alongside Anthony Hopkins, John Hurt and Ian McShane, she carved out a successful career on stage and the small screen. It was while filming The Gentle Touch that she turned her hand to writing with phenomenal results. The result was Widows, a huge TV hit in the early 80s. She then turned her hand to novels, writing international bestsellers, before creating a show for ITV, the iconic and ground-breaking Prime Suspect. It set a path for unparalleled success in books and TV. In what is sure to be an unmissable event, Lynda La Plante will be interviewed by programme chair Denise Mina.
