TORONTO — British actor John Simm will be in Vancouver next month to start work on a new series for BBC America.

The Intruders — described as “a chilling paranormal drama set in the moody Pacific Northwest” — is scheduled to shoot in B.C. from the end of February until early June.

Simm, 43, is well known on the other side of the Atlantic for roles in The Village and Mad Dogs and has twice been nominated for a Best Actor award at the BAFTAs.

Simm also played The Master in several episodes of Doctor Who opposite David Tennant, who is in B.C. until late May shooting the series Gracepoint.

The Intruders is an eight-part series based on the 2007 novel by Michael Marshall. It will be directed by Eduardo Sanchez, co-director of The Blair Witch Project, and Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism).

The project is not to be confused with a feature film with the same title currently shooting in Sudbury, Ont.
