Sherwood is the brand new six-part series coming to BBC One. Created by James Graham the thriller is inspired in part by real events and set in the Nottinghamshire mining village where Graham grew up.
A synopsis for the series reads: “At the heart of Sherwood lie two shocking and unexpected killings that shatter an already fractured community and spark a massive manhunt. As suspicion and antipathy build – both between lifelong neighbours and towards the police forces who descend on the town – the tragic killings threaten to inflame historic divisions sparked during the miners’ strike three decades before.”
Sherwood starts on BBC One at 9pm on Monday, June 13, with a star-studded cast list including The Walking Dead star David Morrissey, who plays detective chief superintendent Ian St Clair, and Spooks actor Robert Glenister, who takes on the role of detective inspector Kevin Salisbury.
