The two-parter is directed by Iain Softley and stars George Mackay, Greg Wise, Hattie Morahan and Jessica Brown Findlay. The drama is based on the bestselling novel by Sadie Jones who also scripted the TV adaptation and follows a young boy who struggles to fit into the life of a post-war English village after witnessing the death of his mother. Christine Langan (The Queen) & Beth Pattinson are executive producing the project for BBC, alongside Pete Czernin & Graham Broadbent (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, In Bruges) for Blueprint Pictures. Shearmur and Softley have previously collaborated on the features The Wings of the Dove, K-PAX, The Skeleton Key and the upcoming Curve. The Outcast is set to premiere later this year on BBC.

    I love Edward Shearmur’s scores… they are hauntingly beautiful and captivating. Can anyone explain to me why so few of his scores ever get released digitally or to cd? I don’t imagine this one will get released either.

    I love the closing credits piano music to the two part drama series the outcast.
    Is there any way I can obtain the piano sheet music for it.
