The war AT home

TV Times - - Cover Story -

Fol­low­ing the re­cent bad har­vest, the starv­ing vil­lagers are re­sort­ing to steal­ing corn from the rich.

Any­one caught thiev­ing is ei­ther be­ing killed or sent to face Ge­orge, who’s now lord­ing it over every­one as a mag­is­trate, and he’s hav­ing a field day hand­ing out harsh sen­tences to the hun­gry res­i­dents. This week, Ross comes up with a cun­ning plan to help ease the food short­age. But when Ge­orge (boo, hiss!) dis­cov­ers what’s go­ing on, he comes up with his own scheme to cause more pain.

‘The mo­ments be­tween Ge­orge and Ross this se­ries are in­ter­est­ing to play out for my­self and Jack be­cause we’ve al­ready been through those scenes be­fore. When they get face to face, it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore they throw can­dles at each other,’ says Ai­dan.

‘There are only so many times you can do that, so we are try­ing new ap­proaches. They both have too much to lose now – as they are get­ting older, they can’t re­ally af­ford to do each other se­ri­ous harm.’

The bit­ter ri­vals are set for more con­fronta­tion
