Collateral-2.jpgCollateral : BBC Two : 12 Feb 9pm

Collateral is a 4-part, police / political thriller for BBC Two written by Sir David Hare (Turks & Caicos) and directed by S J Clarkson (Life on Mars). Starring Academy award nominee Carey Mulligan, the original series for the BBC and Netflix has a stellar cast including John Simm, Nicola Walker and Billie Piper.

Set over 4 days, the police investigation drama explores the personal impacts around the fatal shooting of an illegal immigrant, pizza delivery man, in today's London. Refusing to accept this is a random act of senseless violence, single-minded Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie (Mulligan) is determined to discover if there is a darker truth. Politician David Mars (Simm) becomes instantly embroiled in the drama through his turbulent relationship with single-mum, his ex, Karen (Piper), while Jane Oliver (Walker), a compassionate vicar, struggles to conceal her affair with the only witness to the crime.  S J Clarkson shows the gritty nature of the urban landscape while Hare’s penetrating writing delves into the institutions and state of Britain now.

Here's the trailer:

@Gondola I've also been enjoying this 🙂 There have been quite a few good police dramas on TV over the last few months 🙂

Hi Michelle


Great writing by David Hare in this drama. The Collateral damage on intertwined lives, mostly unseen by us in our lives fortunately, in institutional Britain today. I particularly liked Carey Mulligan and John Simm's characters both fighting to break through boundaries.


For anyone that hasn't seen the first run transmission there's catch up until the 4 April on iPlayer on the TV Box or connected devices. Highly recommended.
