Years And Years

The Scotsman - - TELEVISION -

Rus­sell T Davies is back with an am­bi­tious six- part drama which fol­lows the lives of a sin­gle fam­ily over 15 years in a Bri­tain rocked by un­sta­ble po­lit­i­cal, eco­nomic and tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances.

Years And Years fol­lows the Lyons, a busy Manch­ester fam­ily. Daniel’s get­ting mar­ried to Ralph, Stephen and Ce­leste worry about their kids, Rosie’s chas­ing a new fella and Edith hasn’t been home for years. Pre­sid­ing over them all is Gran, the im­pe­rial Muriel. But when their lives all con­verge on one cru­cial night in 2019, the story ac­cel­er­ates into the fu­ture, fol­low­ing the lives and loves of the Lyons over the next 15 years.

Star­ring Emma Thomp­son, Ruth Made­ley, Rory Kin­n­ear, Rus­sell Tovey, Anne Reid and Jessica Hynes. Tues­day, BBC1, 9pm
