Fa­mil­iar face in new TV drama se­ries

The Arran Banner - - Leisure -

Tele­vi­sion view­ers may have recog­nised a fa­mil­iar face when watch­ing the new six-part drama se­ries

The Last Post on Sun­day. Paul Tinto, who is cast as cor­po­ral Chris Di­marco, fea­tures in the drama as one of the mil­i­tary po­lice of­fi­cers in the show which is set in the 1960s dur­ing the Aden Emer­gency.

Paul spent much of his for­ma­tive years on the is­land as he is the son of former Ar­ran GPs Gra­ham and Bar­bara Tinto who now live in Dunkeld, Perthshire. No stranger to the big and small screen as Paul has also fea­tured in Tommy’s Hon­our and

New Gods, both re­leased in 2016 along with First

Light which was re­leased in 2010. Set in the Ye­men in 1965,

The Last Post is the story of a Bri­tish army unit fight­ing a Ye­meni in­sur­gency in the Mid­dle East and the women and chil­dren who were there with them.

Among the stars is Jes­sica Raine, in a very dif­fer­ent role from the goodie-twoshoes char­ac­ter she played in Call the Mid­wife. The Last Post is screened on BBC 1 Scot­land on Sun­days at 9pm. The first episode is avail­able on the BBC iplayer.
