The Jacobean Antony and Cleopatra
Carol Chillington Rutter

fails if it wasn't practicable in production. Could the King's Men manage it with the sixteen actors who (normally) made up the company, casting Antony and Cleopatra 's forty-odd roles not just to cover doubling but to allow in that doubling for the added complication of actors blacking up? It would have taken careful plotting (along the lines of what was required of the Admiral's Men to stage George Peele's The Battle of Alcazar circa 1600). 3 But it could be done. 4

able to go because of lactating breasts’. Linda is determined to stay as she is, in the community in which she has been brought up, with the friends who she has known from school, doing the same job that she has done since leaving school. Linda Green/Liza Tarbuck Liza Tarbuck, the female star at the heart of Linda Green, was inspired casting in terms of situating Linda as a believable, sassy, naive and yet wholly convincing character. Having acted in the Granada comedy Watching (1987–93), as well as being known for her television-presenting roles on She’s Gotta Have

New Dawn, new moment
Brigid Cherry, Matt Hills, and Andrew O’Day

When officially promoting series 11 of BBC Studio’s Doctor Who , a brief teaser featured the tagline ‘It’s About Time’. In part, this self-consciously referenced the programme’s history: a similar slogan (‘He’s back … and it’s about time!’) had been used to market the show’s return in 1996, with Paul McGann playing the new Doctor on that occasion. But the highly self-reflexive advertisement in 2018 surely traded on Jodie Whittaker’s casting as the first female incarnation of the Doctor, just as another 20

of the story. I also explore key aspects of casting and performance, a crucial area in a film whose real-life case was still sub judice when it was made. I then compare Amenábar’s big-screen version with a Spanish television movie version made three years earlier, which seems to have been forgotten. And, after analysing certain features of narrative technique and film style, finally I explore briefly several aspects of the media

wearing it. The production support team Together with the Producer, the Director will be responsible for arriving at a workable schedule, casting (where applicable), shooting and post-production. The more complex the programme and the higher its budget, the more likely it is that there will be other people to support all these responsibilities. In addition to the Design and Technical teams, even on a student production, these might include the following. Production Manager The role of Production Manager combines organiser, scheduler and sometimes Floor Manager

Undoing the ignominy of boyhood

park project. Julián, betrayed by one of his comrades, dies defending his sets and his out-of-time existence, but with the full admiration of his grandson. Cine con niño As we saw in the chapter on Acción mutante, when De la Iglesia and his team first set out to make cinema, they vowed to avoid what they saw as the most hackneyed subjects of decreto Miró era cinema: literary adaptations, the Civil War, and childhood (see Ordóñez 1997, 100). 800 balas reneges on this original filmic manifesto by casting a boy of about ten as one of its two central protagonists. When

The best – and certainly the most comprehensive – account of the making of the film is in Kevin Brownlow’s masterly biography of David Lean, in which he explores matters of its casting, art direction and music, as well as such key structural matters as starting the film with the last meeting of the protagonists, Laura Jesson and Alec Harvey. He quotes Lean as persuading Coward that this would be more ‘intriguing’ than the straight linear movement of the play: ‘supposing we started with a fairly busy waiting-room. There are two people sitting at a table, talking, a

Internet meme culture, Chris Chibnall’s Doctor Who, and fan mockery
Brigid Cherry

around series 11, without acknowledging the reactions to the casting of a female actor in the role of the Doctor (see also Phillips, 2020 : 218–24). These early contexts of reception reflect sex-based attitudes typical of a patriarchal, not to say misogynistic, worldview. For example, a meme with a high degree of spreadability (it was posted on the non- Who specific subreddit r/funny/ for example) was of the TARDIS partially embedded in a wall and captioned ‘She’s only had it for a day …’ 1 Other versions of the meme read

Isabella, and The Spanish Tragedy , perform sometimes incognito, sometimes in her and its own right, in subsequent theatre. When he’s casting Soliman and Perseda , Hieronimo asks rhetorically: ‘what’s a play without a woman in it?’ (IV.i.97). We might alter the question: ‘What’s a play with a woman in it? What’s the woman doing in this play?’ Isabella

La ardilla roja (1993)

pre-production of La ardilla roja so soon after the release of Vacas was exhausting for him, his cast and crew, most of whom returned to work as if they had never disbanded. The rookie in the team was the actor Nancho Novo, whose casting as J had occurred after Medem watched countless tapes of young actors being interviewed by his assistant, Txarli Llorente. Again, while watching all those talking-heads, Medem’s television screen became a mirror in which he sought his own reflection. Popular actors were considered, including Antonio Banderas, but Medem still did not
