The Second Coming ... By Russell T Davies

What if there was a Second Coming and the Son of God arrived on earth?

What would he say? What would you do? Are you ready for Judgement Day?

Christopher Eccleston plays Steve Baxter, a video shop worker, who is found wandering the Yorkshire Moors after 40 days and nights, mumbling he is the Son of God.

Steve isn't mad - he is the Second Coming. He needs to stage a major event to get the world to sit up and take notice, so he performs a miracle by turning night into day at Manchester City football ground.

The world's media kicks into a frenzy. Steve has a simple purpose - Mankind must produce a Third Testament or face Judgement Day, in five days time. Fear, cynicism and violence erupt and worldwide pandemonium ensues.

But if God is real then so is the Devil. Can the Third Testament be found in time? Can the Son of God save the human race?

The Second Coming is an ambitious and challenging drama from Russell T Davies, the award-winning writer of Queer as Folk and Bob & Rose, written with his customary originality and boldness.

Starring: Christopher Eccleston (The Others, 28 Days, Elizabeth, Cracker) Lesley Sharp (Bob & Rose, The Fully Monty).

Executive Producers: Nicola Shindler Russell T Davies

Producer: Ann Harrison-Baxter (Bob & Rose, Clocking Off)

Director: Adrian Shergold (Holding On, Inspector Morse)

Written By: Russell T Davies (Queer as Folk, Bob & Rose)

The Second Coming will begin transmission on ITV. -Episode 1 - 9th February at 9 pm with Episode 2 on the 10th February at 9 pm.

Looks interesting...

Man that sounds really cool. I actually had an idea for a movie almost exactly like this. I wish we got that here in the states.

Perhaps it will be on one of your channels.

You could try e-mailing Red Production Company, they would probably know if their program rights had been sold to US channels.

Go to the site from the address above, they should have an e-mail address.
