Tim has had minor roles in several feature films:
In the soon to be released King of Crime he features as one of Mark Wingett's Henchman and in the 2017 comedy Finding Fatimah he appeared briefly alongside Bend It Like Beckham and EastEnders star Nina Wadia.
King of Crime (aka Milk and Honey) - (September 2018 cinema release) Dir. Matt Gamell, Screenplay Linda Dunscombe, Prod. James Welling, Exec. Prod. Charlie Wood, Mark Wingett (Marcus King), Tim Dalgleish (Mr King's Heavy), Claire King ((Yvonne King), Rachel Bright (Jessica Slade), Nicholas Brendon (Brad Walsh), Vas Blackwood (Mr Mustaffa), Jonno Davies (Andrew King), Zed Josef (James King), Greg Tanner (Jimmy Tate), Hainsley Lloyd Bennett (Anthony Tully), Bryn Hodgen (George), Lisa Ronaghan (Kylie White), Francesa Louise White (Gemma Carter), Richard Summers-Calvert (Dexter), Mackenna Gyler (Zoe), Jack Loy (Mo), Benji Dotan (Lazy River Boy), Grant Kempster (Mr King snr.), Theresa Godly (News Anchor), Marc Ozall (The Watcher), Ricky Singh (Akbar), Claire Petzal (lauren), Dave Guyler (CIA Agent)Steve Richardson (Steve), Special Effects RJDM Studios, Warrior Film Productions.
‘Wingett and King are excellent in the lead roles… Director Matt Gambell holds the film together admirably and one does hope that he gets the same kind of chances that the likes of Guy Ritchie and Matthew Vaughn have…. Get Carter (1971) and The Long Good Friday (1980) are still the yardsticks [but]… new generations of film-makers… cannot resist a chance to move the genre forward… And now we have a brand-new modern gangster epic…KING OF CRIME … Traditional motifs of violence and scenes which evoke classic Tarantino… but there is sufficient style and substance to elevate it to more than your average British gangster film.’
Film and TV Now – John Higgins
‘Rachel Bright (Eastenders) steals focus with a solid performance as Jessica Slade… while Buffy’s Nicholas Brendan has an enjoyable cameo… From the very first scene, King of Crime has its foot on the pedal… Gambell – and screenwriter Linda Dunscombe – have sought to put a contemporary technological spin on the classic crime genre.
The end result is a wilfully transgressive, sometimes disorienting thriller.’
The 730 Review – Louis Chilton
‘Close to comedy Gold… actually worth watching’
The Guardian (they hated it!) – Leslie Felperin
‘One of those British films that has a raft of famous faces who don’t normally get big screen film roles… Emmerdale’s Claire King, The Bill’s Chris Ellison in a… cameo and… Vas Blackwood as the terrorist Mr Mustaffa… Directed by first time feature director Matt Gambell… it’s a decent debut for a film shot on a tight budget… with more moments that succeed than those which don’t… a decent Brit flick thriller.’
Any Good Films - Simon Hooper
‘An entertaining British crime caper with more twists and turns than most television series… Marcus King has left old-school crime behind, swapping guns for computers (although he still keeps a few guns around)… a new competitor muscles in on his turf: Islamic terror… a strange meeting of minds for sure, but King of Crime makes it seem believable... Played with delightful camp by Vas Blackwood, [King’s] nemesis Mr. Mustaffa seems like he is cut from the same cloth… The resultant drama blends old-school thrills with high-tech skills… worth watching more than once.’

FINDING FATIMAH is a tale of one man’s struggle to find love against the odds.
All young Muslim Shahid (Danny Ashok) wants is to find a life partner but, after five years of trying, he is still struggling to find ‘The One’. The aspiring stand-up comedian is about to hit 30, and his printer business is grinding to a halt, but there's something else rendering him well and truly UN-dateable... he’s divorced.
And now his ‘divorced tag’ is all people see.
Using an online match-making site, Shahid sees no option but to select ‘never married’ on his profile, and when he falls for the bold and beautiful Dr Fatimah (Asmara Gabrielle), he must decide when and how to break the news.
Funny and heart-warming, Finding Fatimah is a hilarious look at the modern British Muslim dating scene. It releases nationwide in UK cinemas from April 21.

When, one day in 1929, the novelist Thomas Wolfe, decided to keep his appointment with Max Perkins, editor at Scribner's, he had no illusions: his manuscript would be turned down. But, to his amazement, his novel, "Look Homeward, Angel", was accepted for publication. The only trouble was that it was overlong. Although reluctant to see his poetic prose trimmed, Wolfe agreed and helped by Perkins, who had become a true friend, it instantly became a best seller. Success was even greater in 1935 when "Of Time end the River" appeared, but the fight for reducing Wolfe's logorrheic written expression had been even longer, with 5,000 pages, Perkins managed to cut 90,000 words from the book, and bitter ultimately taking its toll, the relationships between the two men gradually deteriorating. Wolfe did not feel grateful to Perkins any longer but had started...
