James Midgley

A Huge Big Thank you to Paul Berridge who has made various profiles and photos availabe to me. They were previously on his Beckindale site (that is no more). This is one of those profiles.

James says "Ed looks at everybody the same, whether they're rich or poor. I think Emily and Ed make a good couple. They have and emotional connection and they both find each other very interesting. Their outlook on life is very similar."
James Midgley played 'Bob' Smart in Channel Four's highly successful, gritty, legal drama, North Square. Set in Leeds, it centred on barristers' chambers and the intertwining emotional and professional lives of the people who worked there.
James played the office junior and the nephew of chief clerk, Peter McLeish, who ruled the chambers with a rod of iron. 'He's employed as a spy for McLeish, to find out what's going on,' explains James, whose television credits also include Always & Everyone, Heartbeat, Where the Heart Is, and Cold Feet.

James also appeared in Coronation Street in December 2000 as the policeman who arrested Curly watts on his stag night.
