MOVIE NEWS – Game of Thrones and The Last of Us star Bella Ramsey and Doctor Who’s 13th Doctor Jodie Whittaker have also been cast in the second season of BBC prison drama Time. The three-part series takes place in a women’s prison, where we follow three newly arrived inmates.
The first season of Time, starring Sean Bean and Stephen Graham, was a hit with viewers and critics. Written by BAFTA award winner Jimmy McGovern, the series took place in a men’s prison, where the fates of a teacher (Bean) convicted of drunk driving and a conscientious prison guard (Graham) intersected.
In the second season, we can meet new characters who are trying to survive in a women’s prison. Bella Ramsey plays Kelsey, a young girl who cannot accept her situation. Jodie Whittaker stars as Orla, a woman with a mysterious past who doesn’t want to be in a relationship with anyone. Tamara Lawrence plays Abi, a sensitive and intelligent woman who is behind bars because of a tragic event.
Siobhan Finneran, who played Marie-Louise, the prison chaplain, in the first season also returns to the series. In the second season, he will be the only link between the first and second seasons.
Filming for the second season of Time is about to begin in Liverpool. The series was co-written by Jimmy McGovern and Helen Black. The series is produced by Tom Sherry and executive produced by Jimmy McGovern, Tom Sherry and Michael Parke.
