The Sparticle Mystery

Screenterrier reported back in April on the open casting call for Sparticles, an ambitious new 13-part drama from the Bafta-winning team behind CBBC's school drama Summerhill. The series has now been re-christened The Sparticle Mystery.

Pictured are some of the large child cast, which includes 16 year old Megan Jones (from Sylvia Youngs) as Tia, newcomer 10 year old Oliver Bell from Bristol as Liam, Zack Middleton (a pupil at Redroofs Theatre School) as Ami, Abbie Hayes (represented by Mark Jermin) as Frankie, and Wesley Nelson who has cerebral palsy and played Ian Dury in the film Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. as Jeffrey.

The cast also includes 16 year old  Jerome Holder (represented by Sylvia Youngs) as Callum. Jerome, from Walthamstow, played Maxy in Tracy Beaker and recently starred in Shank.

17 year old Abi Hardingham from High Wycombe, who starred as Heather in the online teen drama Freak, plays Kat.









Karim Zeroual (also Sylvia Youngs) and from London plays Sadiq. Karim appeared as Young Simba in The Lion King in the West End.


15 year old Grace Mandeville from Surrey (represented by VisABLE People) stars as Holly, and newcomer Emily Sanderson as Reese.

Set in modern Britain, starting on the day that all the adults disappear and shot entirely on location in Bristol, this ground-breaking science fiction action adventure series features an all child cast.

After the initial highs of living life without their parents, ten children set out on a dangerous Quest to solve the mystery of the Disappearance against the ticking clock of an imminent nuclear meltdown.
The Quest takes the children across a country of under-15s rebuilding itself along tribal lines to the top secret Sparticle Project – a massive particle collider machine built to look for parallel universes.

Sparticles explores what children do in a world without adults, when they are given total freedom to be themselves, and dramatises their greatest challenge – to save the world, without Mum and Dad.

Look out for Skins Season 1 and 2 star Larissa Wilson, who also makes an appearance in Sparticles playing Anita.
