It has been announced this morning that Matthew Lewis among many other actors, including Harry Potter alum Shirley Henderson (Moaning Myrtle), has joined the cast of BBC’s Happy Valley for it’s much anticipated second series. Happy Valley has been nominated for and won over 30 awards, including winning Best Drama Series award at this year’s BAFTAs with writer Sally Wainwright also named Best Writer at the 2015 BAFTA Craft Awards.
His role has not been revealed yet, we will keep you updated on any news! There will be six 60 minute episodes airing some time in 2016. Filming starts in Yorkshire next week on the gripping, complex and unmissable drama (not suitable for younger viewers.) You can watch the first series on iTunes or purchase the DVD here. A short description of series two may be read below:
As series two opens, we join Catherine (Sarah Lancashire), the no-nonsense police sergeant who is back heading up her team of dedicated police officers in The Calder Valley in West Yorkshire. With Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton) firmly behind bars, Catherine suspects there may be another serial killer on the loose and makes a gruesome discovery that will have shocking repercussions for her and her family. Meanwhile, a new detective, DS John Wadsworth (Kevin Doyle) arrives on the block with his own set of problems, and despite being firmly under lock and key, Tommy forms a bond with a mysterious female admirer (Shirley Henderson).

Digital Spy reports this morning that Matthew Lewis has been cast in series 4 of Ripper Street. It is unknown who his character is, apart from being a policeman, but we will keep you updated as news develops. “From our new studio set in Ireland, it has been a delight to watch this cast reunite and grow,” series creator Richard Warlow said. “As these new characters’ lives take shape on the page, it is a daily inspiration to know that they will be brought to life by the most magnificent troupe of actors Ripper Street has yet assembled.”
A description of the first series is as follows:
Haunted by the failure to catch London’s most evil killer, Jack the Ripper, Inspector Edmund Reid now heads up the notorious H Division – the toughest police district in the East End. Charged with keeping order in the blood-stained streets of Whitechapel, Reid and his men find themselves fighting to uphold justice and the rule of law; but always in the background lurks the fear of the Ripper – is he back for another reign of terror? Rich episodic storylines meld with the intrigue of a criminal underworld festering on the hard streets of Victorian London, following the battle of the men whose job it is to bring the law to the lawless.
This news explains why Matthew is in Ireland and posted a photo of himself dressed as a 19th century policeman.
Series four will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video – with a broadcast date still TBC. The third series is currently airing on Friday nights at 9pm on BBC One. For fans who want to catch up on the series you can watch it via the links below:

As we posted quite a few months ago, Matthew Lewis is participating in the Kilimanjaro Challange to raise money for the Steve Prescott Foundation. He has just set up a donation page in an effort to raise £8,000 by the climb in October.
He has written a letter to fans asking for donations, which you can read below. Please head over to Just Giving and help Matt and Nick reach their goal! Each climber aims to raise at least £4000 for the 3 charities of the SPF, the Christie Hospital, Try Assist and the Oxford Transplant Foundation.
Both Nick and I are big Rugby League fans and we’ve followed our team the Leeds Rhinos for many years. Rugby League however is more than just club loyalties and tribalism. It’s a social sport, a game that brings communities together instead of dividing them, for want of a better word, it’s a family. And nobody sums that mentality up more than Steve Prescott.
There are four words in particular that described Stephen Prescott: competitive, resilient, courageous and inspirational. These qualities were prevalent throughout his life, in which sport played a dominant role. To reach the top in Rugby League like Steve did, a fiercely competitive attitude is needed, together with great self-belief and courage. Stephen also had to overcome several set-backs during his sporting career and, in the face of terminal illness, he showed terrific courage and has become an inspirational figure to thousands, not just within the Rugby League community itself.
It was Steve’s plan to scale this beast of a mountain, to be literally on top of the world. But, being Steve, doing it in NINE days was too easy, nah, Steve wanted to do it in FIVE. Three days up and two days down. Sadly, Steve passed away before he could achieve this feat so, we’re gonna take up his mantle and do it on his behalf.
Oh, and in honour of Steve’s spectacular career we’re gonna break a world record whist we are up there too. The highest Rugby League game in the history of mankind…. EVER! A full 80 minute, RFL officiated Rugby League match at 20,000ft. We’ve even dragged ex-professional referee Steve Ganson up with us to do the honours. With his best pal Adrian Morley. What could possibly go wrong?
Now, this is where YOU come in! Nick and I have to raise £8000 for the trip. It’s a daunting task and it’s probably going to be easier climbing the bloody mountain than it will raising the money but every little helps. Anything you can spare will go towards this fantastic cause. With your help and a sprinkle of Steve’s enduring legacy and mentality we might just achieve this and get up that mountain.
