The stars of new drama Fortitude on the red carpet

The launch of the new TV series Fortitude has taken place in central London.

The 12-part crime thriller set in the Arctic will be the first programme to be shown simultaneously in five different countries, when it starts on Sky later this month.

Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon and Christopher Eccleston star in the drama that is centred around a mysterious death that happens in the Arctic Circle.

It follows how this murder affects the close-knit community that live in the town named Fortitude.

We spoke to the stars on the red carpet, who told us about their experiences working in Iceland and what drew them to the bleak story. 

Our TV Editor Toby Earle was at the Premiere to catch up with some of the stars.
