TV land: We need no persuading; in the pipeline..

Byline: NICOLA METHVEN and POLLY HUDSON

CALLING all Spooks fans - the gorgeous Rupert Penry-Jones will be starring in ITV's new production of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Lovely Rupe will play the dashing Captain Wentworth, long-time beau of the book's heroine Anne Elliot, a lonely Cinderella figure played by Fingersmith actress Sally Hawkins.

Meanwhile Nighty Night star Julia Davis will play Anne's rather glam sister Elizabeth - and Buffy fave Anthony Head pops up as the girls vain, pompous and debtridden father Sir Walter Elliot.

Can't wait until next year.
