Here’s Doc­tor Fos­ter’s Jodie Comer in one of eight “an­gry and dan­ger­ous” fe­male mono­logues on BBC4, to mark 100 years of women get­ting the vote.

In Bovril Pam she plays a 1960s sec­re­tary who has a sex­ual awak­en­ing and dis­cusses her first or­gasm with typ­ing pool pals.

The 15-minute dra­mas in­clude one with Three Girls’s Liv Hill about the York­shire Rip­per’s ter­ror reign and Ro­mola Garai of The Hour tack­ling cast­ing couch sex­ism.

Other themes in­clude mums ac­cused of mur­der and mar­i­tal rape. Two mono­logues a night will air from Mon­day at 10pm.
