Timothy Spall stars as Malcolm Harvey, a teacher who comes to terms with his past during a school trip in BBC One's uplifting drama, 'Mr Harvey Lights A Candle'. The film also features Celia Imrie and Ben Miles as his fellow teachers Miss Davies and Mr Cole, and Natalie Press as troubled schoolgirl Helen Taylor. Natalie won the Evening Standard Film Award for Best Newcomer for her role in the critically acclaimed cinema release 'My Summer of Love' In 'Mr Harvey Lights A Candle' a class of fifth formers gets more than they bargained for on a school trip to Salisbury Cathedral. In charge of the visit is Mr Harvey, an old-fashioned and melancholy teacher, whose secret agenda for the trip - to light a candle in honour of his dead wife - has dramatic repercussions for the whole group. The day starts off badly when the bus breaks down and Mr Harvey's wallet containing a picture of his wife is stolen and the photo is defaced. When he launches into a ferocious verbal attack on Helen, a troubled teen and the very likely culprit, it is clear that Mr Harvey has been carrying the baggage of his dead wife for far too long. Meanwhile Miss Davies and Mr Cole try to control the unruly group, but tensions are growing among the students, especially between Phil (Daniel Bliss), an angry graffiti artist, and Mo (Joshua Malin), a devout Muslim, who are forced to confront their religious differences in the Cathedral. After a physical fight and a stint in a locked choir room closet, Phil must question why he is so offended by Mo's faith. But the students are not the only ones who learn valuable lessons that day.
