TV ratings: On its British premiere on television on BBC2, on August 28th 2011, it managed an impressive 3.56m (15.7%) of audience between 9pm and 10.45pm.
Bill Nighy, Rachel Weisz, and Ralph Fiennes had previously worked together on the award-winning political thriller The Constant Gardener (2005).
Saskia Reeves and Alice Krige each played the same character, Lady Jessica Atreides for television. Reeves portrayed her in the mini-series Dune (2000), though Krige had been the first choice. Krige played Lady Jessica in the mini-series Children of Dune (2003) when pregnancy prevented Reeves from reprising the role.
Tom Hughes (Ralph Wilson), Felicity Jones (Julianne Worricker) and Ralph Fiennes (Alec Beasly) all worked together in Cemetery Junction (2010).
