Who Do You Think You Are?

An ac­tor who needs no in­tro­duc­tion kicks off the new se­ries

TV Times - - Film Guide -

Ge­neal­ogy / 9.00pm / BBC1 Charles Dance has played some for­mi­da­ble char­ac­ters over the years but his real-life softer side shines through in this open­ing episode of the ge­neal­ogy se­ries, which is one of the most mov­ing we’ve seen. While the artis­tic con­nec­tions and a cheeky fam­ily scan­dal on his mother’s side are en­light­en­ing, what re­ally captivates is his emo­tional in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the life of his fa­ther Wal­ter, who died when Charles was a tod­dler. The ac­tor is stunned to dis­cover that he had two half-sis­ters he never knew about and it al­most turns into an episode of Long Lost Fam­ily when he trav­els to South Africa to meet his great-niece. A truly pow­er­ful watch.
