Keeping faith episode 8
Comedy Beats are back at The Grasshopper in Crawley on Friday, September 7 with their regular monthly offering, promising “four of the very finest comedians from the UK comedy circuit.” Spokesman Mark Coxon said: “This star-studded line-up will mark the beginning of our fourth year of putting on shows. When we started I never thought the company would expand as quickly as it has. “For quite a while now the comedians have been saying our bills rival those at the best comedy clubs in the country. Since our last show at The Grasshopper we have been approached by a venue in central London. They had heard about the work we were doing in Crawley and the surrounding areas and they have now asked us to put on some gigs for them between October and February 2019. It certainly is an exciting time at Comedy Beats. “Our Crawley show in September looks like it’s going to be a real cracker. Our star turn this time around is the wonderful Robert White.

It may be new to some viewers, but this drama has already broken records. When Keeping Faith aired on BBC Wales earlier this year, it became Wales' most-watched non-networked drama in 20 years, while there have been more than 9.5 million requests to watch it on iPlayer.

For those who have missed out so far, the drama stars Eve Myles as lawyer and mother Faith, who is forced to cut her extended maternity leave short after her husband and business partner disappears.

Fans have called it the Welsh Broadchurch, it’s already a huge success – and it hasn’t even been on the telly yet. Keeping Faith is the Welsh-noir thriller that had viewers gripped when it appeared on BBC iPlayer earlier this year, with 10 million downloading the eight-part series. It centres on feisty Faith Howells, a solicitor and mum of three whose husband Evan disappears while she’s on maternity leave. Word of mouth was behind this record-breaking audience figure. The BBC had such an unexpected hit on their hands they extended the show’s stay on iPlayer over the May bank holiday to give fans late to the party a chance to watch. And then, just like that, it disappeared from the streaming catch-up service. But now everyone gets another chance to see it - or finish it – if you agonisingly missed the last couple of episodes when it left iPlayer, as it starts on BBC1 on Thursday at 9pm. Here’s everything you need to know about a drama that … [Read more...] about Welsh crime drama Keeping Faith set to grip viewers who loved Broadchurch
