Tonight sees the start of the a new 2 part drama on BBC1 starring David Morrissey (The Walking Dead, Doctor Who and Blackpool), Sheridan Smith (Mrs Biggs, The Royle Family and Jonathan Creek), Olivia Coleman (Broadchurch, Hot Fuzz and The Iron Lady) and Sean Maguire (Eastenders, Grange Hill and Scott & Bailey).

Described by writer, David Nicholls, ‘The 7.39′ is a “love story for grown-ups, the sort of drama that has not been seen on television for a while. I’m delighted to be writing for the BBC again and working with such a terrific cast and production team.”

Ben Stephenson, Controller BBC Drama Commissioning, described it as “laugh out loud funny, painfully truthful, emotionally agonising and brilliantly British!”.

He added that he was ”bowled over by the award-winning and stellar cast starring in The 7.39. But it’s perhaps no surprise given the wonderful scripts by David Nicholls, in his first television drama since his novel, One Day, became a worldwide phenomenon.”

The 7.39 begins tonight (6th January) on BBC1 at 9pm and concludes tomorrow at the same time.
