The Lost Honour is based on the true story of Christopher Jefferies, a retired schoolmaster who was arrested when his tenant, 25 year-old landscape architect Joanna Yeates, was found murdered on Christmas Day in 2010. While in police custody, Jefferies became the most familiar face in Britain.
This powerful drama begins the day before Yeates’ disappearance, and follows the innocent Jefferies through his arrest, release and subsequent isolation as his un-sought fame profoundly affected his life. On 20 January 2011, the real killer, neighbour Vincent Tabak, was finally arrested.
Christopher Jefferies will be played by Jason Watkins (Being Human, Psychoville, Little Dorrit). The cast also includes Peter Polycarpou as Louis Charalambous and Shaun Parkes as Paul Okebu, Jefferies’ legal team.

No one will ever forget the man with the eccentric hair who became so connected with the murder of Joanna Yeates. I want to make sure that no one forgets the same man who was acquitted, and who fought back to clear his name, and became a very British kind of hero.
– Roger Michell, Director
Peter Morgan has written a vivid and ultimately uplifting account of a man who was wrongly accused and found himself at the centre of a media storm. It's a story that celebrates our right to be eccentric, and it also, as it happens, is the story of a rather brilliant man who was once my English teacher!”

The terracotta-coloured clay model first appeared on television screens in 1977 on a show hosted by artist Tony Hart.
Morph, who has not been on television regularly since the late 1990s, is now part of a campaign by Aardman's Peter Lord who wants to raise £75,000 on crowdfunding website Kickstarter to help fund 12 new one-minute online episodes.
Co-founder Mr Lord said: "I’m amazed and humbled that even though it has been over 30 years since his birth, the little guy still has such a passionate following on Facebook and YouTube.
"We’ve had so many people asking for him to make a comeback that I thought it’s about time we start hatching a plan."
The campaign, which will end on 28 November, has so far raised around £20,000 and Aardman's co-founder said they plan to start production in January if the target is met.
