In a move back to BBC Television and contemporary drama following two seasons as smooth-talking conman Rhys Griffiths on ABC's 'The Catch', in David Hare's 'Collateral', John will play ex-politician David Mars, who becomes embroiled in the fallout of the shooting of a Pizza delivery driver. Billie Piper (perhaps best known for her portrayal of companion Rose in 'Doctor Who' to both Christoper Eccleston and David Tennant's Doctors) plays the politician's troubled ex-lover. The cast also includes Carey Mulligan (who also appeared in Doctor Who as Sally Sparrow in an episode titled 'Blink'!) and Nicola Walker (best known as Ruth in long-running spy drama, 'Spooks', but lately as a Police Detective in 'Unforgotten') , here playing a member of the clergy.
