GRAHAM Norton’s bestselling novel Holding is being brought to life on the small screen.

What time is Holding on ITV?
This four-part drama is an adaptation of Graham Norton’s bestselling novel Holding, which was released back in 2016.
The show is directed by Kathy Burke, written by Dominic Treadwell-Collins and Karen Cogan, and produced by Happy Prince and Port Pictures.
The show begins on ITV TONIGHT (Monday, March 14) at 9pm.
What is Holding about?
Set in the insular fictional village of Duneen, West Cork, on the edge of Ireland, a place with its own climate and rhythms, Holding, written by Dominic Treadwell-Collins and Karen Cogan, introduces us to a surprising, quirky and shrewdly observed world.
Told through its idiosyncratic, yet very real characters, who each have their own frailties, complexities, secrets and pasts, Holding is also a compelling murder mystery, which unfolds with a distinctive and darkly comic tone and explores themes of grief, community, family, and various shades of love – from quietly passionate to taboo to unrequited.
In the series, Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill plays Sergeant PJ Collins, a kindly man who enjoys comfort food and half-hearted police work, when he is put in charge of investigating the murder of a long-lost local legend, forcing him to connect to the community that he usually tries to avoid.
