Russell T Davies’ hit BBC One series Years and Years, which ended its run on BBC One this week, is getting a DVD release next month.
Starring Emma Thompson has been cast alongside Russell Tovey, Jessica Hynes, Rory Kinnear, Ruth Madeley, T’Nia Miller and Anne Reid, the series follows the lives of Lyons family as Britain is rocked by unstable political, economic and technological advances over a 15 year period.
Produced by Red Productions, the drama is the ninth collaboration between Davies and Red founder Nicola Shindler, following Queer As Folk, Casanova, Cucumber, Banana, Bob & Rose and The Second Coming.
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. Edith hasn’t been home for years. All presided over by 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.
And what a world! Everything we fear, and everything we hope for, happening around this tight-knit family. Society gets hotter, faster, madder, with the turmoil of politics, technology and distant wars affecting the Lyons in their day-to-day lives.
Set against this, the Lyons have to navigate their everyday hopes and fears, knowing that one ordinary family could never change the world. Or could they?
Years and Years comes to DVD on July 15th and is now available to pre-order from Amazon.co.uk*
