Ashes to Ashes

Matthew Macfadyen hoped to return to Ashes to Ashes

According to the Mirror

Matthew Macfadyen's hopes of appearing in Ashes To Ashes again have turned to dust. The hubby of Keeley Hawes, who plays Alex Drake, guested as oddball charity worker Gill Holis in the first series. He said: "I pleaded for another part. But once you're in it, you can't do it again."

Picture of Matthew Macfadyen and Dean Andrews

Dean Andrews' official website has a picture of Matthew Macfadyen in his Gil outfit with Dean (ready to beat poor Gil up). It's a fabulous picture of the two of them. When you are there, click on image number 15. The images do take some time to load, so be patient.  Click here.

Dean's site also has some wonderful pictures of Keeley Hawes and other cast members. Take a look around.

Another Review of Ashes to Ashes Episode 7

This review had the following to say about Matthew in last night's episode of Ashes to Ashes:

Mathew Macfadyen as Gill Hollis is a very well-realised character, almost sympathetic, nicely fleshed-out, complete with OCD quirk that really brings the "Children In Need fundraiser" to life.
