Also Lindsay Duncan, Dolly Wells, Richard Wilson, Faical Elkihel, Anthony Flanagan, Gary Beadle and Giovanni Scifoni took guest roles.

July 2020
Variety reports the broadcast of Around The World In Eighty Days 'has now been put back a year to Christmas 2021.'
The article also says:
'One episode (of eight) is in the bag and there are, theoretically, choices about which territory the globe-trotting drama returns to, with Romania, France and Italy among the scheduled locations of its episodically-planned shoot.
However, despite the country’s intensive lockdown due to many densely populated areas, producer Simon Crawford Collins reckons it has to be South Africa, where cameras first rolled at Cape Town Film Studios in February.
"There are so many unknowns everywhere else. We’re already relying on the goodwill of a big Netflix show going into the studio after us that uses the same construction manager. The cost of shutting down has been in the millions — we’ve had 24-hour security guards on our sets since February."
The series has more than 100 speaking parts and Slim Film+TV is in regular talks with the cast, including lead David Tennant, about their welfare and availability. According to Crawford Collins the one upside is that having enjoyed the experience prior to lockdown, everyone has a real determination to get back.
