  • Published on May 7, 2019
  • We are joined by Paul Ritter, Jessie Buckley, Jared Harris and Emily Watson who talk to us about the new Sky Atlantic series based on the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine. We learn how challenging for the cast it was to portray such a recent and tragic event, and how they went about ensuring they told the story authentically and with integrity.

    Currently consuming as much Paul Ritter as possible. Recently finished a rewatch of Chernobyl and the entire Friday Night Dinner series and I am heartbroken at his passing. 54 is no age at all. Rest in peace, Paul. You will be missed. Thoughts with his wife and sons.

    One question I would have liked answered is "When you studied the effects of radiation to a human being, did that add an extra layer to your character and if so how much?"

    I recommend that you guys look up the experience of the wife of Anatoly Sitnikov, she basically went through what Vasilys wife did in the show, but her story is bittersweet and real

    The host's outfit is the clothes they would have in the lost and found if someone stole his clothes out of his locker at the gym.

    i must admit that bruno* is really bad at interviewing, and the music is unnecessary bad. its awful. mr ritter is almost cracking up in the beginning.

    the next shift were also using a manual that was censored by the higher ups in the plant to hide the errors of having graphite coating the prong things. I apologize I don't know what they are called.

  • Heather Wheeler
    Heather Wheeler 5 months ago

    so the real blame can be out in the managers of the plant. However it is correct to assume that the shift chef had some accountability for what happend, the ones actually doing the test cannot be blamed.

    Jessie Buckley, Is a versatile, beautiful, truly, driven actress, who is professionally, honing her craft, she is so believable accent wise. This lovely woman who was recognised by none other than Andrew Lloyd Webber, as a Lass of prodigious talent, 13 years ago ( I think) .

    Is it just me or does Paul Ritter strikingly resemble Louis de Funes, the french comedian? Anyway, he is now Anatoli Dyatlov for the rest of his life....

    I feel bad for paul Ritter because hes a nice person in real life and he had to play dyatlov which was probably annoying for him

    I haven't had the chance to experience much of Paul Ritter's work so you can say I saw him in Chernobyl for the first time. And after the role, although he's a cool guy, I seem to fear him kind of. He played it so gracefully that it embedded him as that character in my mind. Amazing actor!

    I remember the day of the explosion one Brit TV announcer said with a grin- "Now it's time to go over to the weather forecast as I'm sure we'd like to know which way the winds blowing"..:)

    The series was spoilt to some extent by most actors continually lighting up for a smoke (filthy habit), but perhaps it was the producers subtle way of reminding us that smoking kills far more people than the Chernobyl disaster ever did..;)....PS- Emily Watson is a dish, she can light my fire anytime..:)

    When the actors started explaining the circumstances of the security test, I had the impression that they were still somehow playing their Chernobyl characters.Especially Jared.

    I cant take Paul Ritter serious. Great actor but for me he will always be Martin Goodman All I see is Martin and the Chernobyl disaster makes so much sense, why it happened.
