Christopher Eccleston will be John Lennon in a 90-minute one-off drama for BBC Four. Lennon Naked will cover the 1967-1971 period of Lennon's life.

Naoko Mori (Absolutely Fabulous, Torchwood) will play Yoko Ono in this biopic directed by Edmund Coulthard and written by Robert Jones (co-creator of Party Animals with Ben Richards)

This announcement comes as a form of solace, in the premiere week of the laughable Paradox, the five-episode series shown on BBC One and starring Tamzin Outhwaite (The Fixer). A show which is a good candidate to rejoin Bonekickers, Spooks: Code 9 or Demons in the cemetary of the British "high-concept" (sic) fiction experiences.

Lennon Naked is scheduled to air in 2010. The choice of Eccleston to play John Lennon is simply... fantastic.
