It has an excellent cast, including my unaccountable crush Eddie Marsan who isn’t often lured onto TV, so hope this is an indication of a strong script.

One of them used to be in ' Grandmas house ' with Simon Amstall
I loved that comedy

Definitely looks like original footage interspersed.

the80sweregreat Sun 03-Oct-21 21:41:55

It's just a breeding ground for ex Eastenders actors

The land lady was in Dr Zhivago

Does anyone notice the likenesses with the Brexit campaign?

Clawdy Sun 03-Oct-21 22:10:24

Very well-acted and gripping. Great that the main female role is not yet another well-known face.

Yes I did, let's take our country back 🙄

The wonderful Rita Tushingham! A real blast from the past, she would have been able to give great style tips from the sixties as it was her hey day. It was really puzzling me because it was on the tip of my tongue, I was hoping it would come to me before the credits rolled, but it didn’t.

And Christie Watts aka Tracey Anne Oberman

Yes the parallels with current xenophobia are striking sad
