Colin Baker, the sixth Doctor Who, plays the lead in Hive Films short film ‘Finding Richard’ which premiered at Cannes 2014. ( Facebook group Finding Richard )

The film follows a young boy, Gull, who on hearing that the bones of Richard the Third have been found begins his own archaeological quest. Helping him on this journey is his Grandad, himself a dreamer who see something of himself in Gull. But what Gull finds isn’t quite what he – or his Grandad – expected.

Joining I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here alumni Colin Baker is local actor David Knight, 12. David, who plays Gull, has appeared in Doctors and Britain’s Got Talent and attends local drama school The Pauline Quirk Academy.
The short film, shot on location in Leicestershire, is co-written and directed by Rhys Davies of Hive Films whose feature film ‘How To Make A Movie For 43 Pounds’ recently premiered at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival.  Doug Cubin of Sawscale Films co-writes and produces.

Speaking from Los Angeles Colin Baker said “I am excited about ‘Finding Richard’.  I receive many scripts and am rarely able to participate unfortunately. However – I’ll make no bones about it (!) when I read ‘Finding Richard’  I knew that I had to try and find time to play Grandad. It’s a an impressive, gentle and sensitive script, so I managed to squeeze the time between trips to the USA and New Zealand.”
