Parfitt added: “I have worked closely with Bob & Co on their brilliant adaptation of Sebastian Faulk’s The Girl at the Lion D’Or and it seems a natural progression to help where I can on the rest of their very exciting slate.

“I will of course continue my commitment to all our Trademark projects”.
