The Village – Series 2
The critically acclaimed TV drama is back for a highly anticipated second series set in the roaring twenties.
It’s 1923. The Great War is over but what kind of England has won? Now in a world of boom and bust, motor cars and the Charleston, the twenties bring a blast of energy and freedom to the village; dance halls and jazz music are having their influence on the villager’s lives. As an election year divides and inspires, we will find the power of the woman’s vote has been sorely undervalued. That is until now, as the outside world continues to break down barriers, bringing with it big dramas and change.
Series 1 was nominated for three Television BAFTAs and is one not to be missed as the story of one Peak District village moves into the jazz age. The Village is seen through the prism of Bert Middleton’s eyes – the young man who never leaves the village but sees the world transform around him.
From creator and writer Peter Moffat (Silk, Criminal Justice), series 2 features a returning stellar cast alongside the addition of much-loved British talent including: John Simm (Life On Mars, Doctor Who), Maxine Peake (Silk, Shameless), Julian Sands (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Killing Fields), Juliet Stevenson (White Heat, Truly Madly Deeply), Nico Mirallegro (Upstairs Downstairs, My Mad Fat Diary), Juliet Aubrey (The White Queen, The Constant Gardener) and Ben Batt (Shameless, Scott & Bailey).
