Matt Smith in 'Christopher and His Kind'

Matt Smith returns to the small screen tonight, to star as novelist Christopher Isherwood in BBC Two's one-off drama 'Christopher and His Kind'.

The film is based on the gay writer's book 'Christopher and His Kind' which covers the most memorable years of Isherwood's life, when he left England to spend a week in Berlin and decided to stay there indefinitely, to 1939.

'Christopher and His Kind' - tonight, 9.30pm on BBC Two.
The 'divinely decadent' Berlin cabaret scene is in full swing when a young and wide-eyed Christopher Isherwood arrives in the city to stay with his close friend and occasional lover, the poet WH Auden. To Isherwood's reserved English sensibility, the city's thriving gay subculture is thrilling and intoxicating. But Christopher soon finds himself heartbroken after the failure of a hopeless love affair, and so sets out on a process of self-discovery as he forges an identity and place for himself amidst the chaos of 1930s Berlin.

The cast also includes Lindsay Duncan as Kathleen Isherwood and Toby Jones as Gerald Hamilton.
