ZoŽ plays eccentric aristocrat Lady Bloomsbury Barton in the second episode of the BBCís new adaptation of Barbara Euphan Toddís classic childrenís stories, which aired just after Christmas. It's available via the BBC iPlayer.

Shadow and Bone

ZoŽ recently finished filming this major new fantasy series for Netflix, based on Leigh Bardugoís novels. She's been cast as Baghra, a ruthless teacher. The release date hasn't yet been announced.

World Refugee Day performance of The Jungle

Hereís ZoŽ and her husband arriving at Londonís Playhouse Theatre for the World Refugee Day performance of The Jungle on 20 June. Theyíre also pictured in Whatsonstage.comís coverage of the event, as is Pearl Mackie, Zoeís co-star from another recent theatrical hit, The Birthday Party.

As The Jungleís website explains, the audience is Ďtransported into the world of the Calais refugee and migrant camp, where a community forged from necessity shares unimaginable stories of hope against all oddsí.

The Older Woman on Radio 4 Extra

The first series of The Older Woman (1993) is being repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra (keep an eye on the schedule, as dates and times vary). It stars ZoŽ alongside Martin Clunes and Toyah Willcox (whose website includes several great clippings about the showís original broadcast).

This comedy-drama has an element of romance Ė with a distinctive twist. ZoŽ plays Miss Callaghan, who was once local journalist Roy Hitchcockís teacher and is now the object of his affections...

Muse of Fire comes to Vimeo

You can now watch Dan Poole and Giles Tereraís stunning Shakespeare documentary Muse of Fire (2013), which features insightful interviews with ZoŽ and numerous other well-known actors, via Vimeo On Demand.

Two new DVDs for the US and Canada

Thereís brilliant news for fans of ZoŽ (and British TV generally) in the US and Canada. The emotive, entertaining Girlfriends, in which Zoe stars as one of a trio of friends rocked by tragedy, is now available on Region 1 DVD, having aired on both sides of the Atlantic earlier this year. (The drama series got a UK/rest of Europe DVD release in February.)

You can also enjoy Keeping the Castle, a 2013 documentary narrated by ZoŽ that was released on DVD in mid-June. Some stores suggest the DVD is Region Free and others that itís Region 1, so please get in touch if you can confirm the format. ĎViscount Crichton, son of the sixth Earl of Erne and heir to the historic family home of Crom Castle in County Fermanagh [Ö] faces the ever-increasing challenge of keeping a castle despite growing bills,í explains the BBC in its summary of the programme.

Acorn TV set to stream Love Hurts

Look out for early 90s TV classic Love Hurts, starring ZoŽ and Adam Faith, on Acorn TV (the streaming service that showed Girlfriends in the US). Series one of the romantic drama will be available from 30 July.

To the best of my knowledge, Love Hurts hasnít been repeated in the US for over ten years. Acorn TV subscribers, you have a real treat in store!

Portrait by Terence McKenna

The portrait of ZoŽ by Terence McKenna that recently appeared in a London exhibition can now be viewed online, thanks to the artist.

Iíd say it really captures Zoeís elfin qualities. What do you think?
