Jimmy McGovern’s devastating drama ends tonight: that’s it. In three episodes it has packed a hell of a lot in – and packed a lot of hell in. But also, we’ve seen the glimmers of kindness within HMP Craigmore. One sad scene in this finale involving the gentle prison chaplain (Siobhan Finneran) may leave you in pieces.

Finneran is as good as everyone else in the smaller roles – notably Brian McCardie as the prison’s drug-dealing overlord: McCardie can say and do very little yet still be quite terrifying. It’s a gift.

His character has prison officer Eric (Stephen Graham) in his clutches and, ominously, Mark (Sean Bean) still owes him a favour. Bean is extraordinary at portraying a man who has become a walking apology, his faced etched with shame and disappointment. Around his performance and with understated dialogue, McGovern builds a moving story about the haunting power of guilt.

The finale of @BBCOne ’s #Time airs at 9PM TONIGHT!

How BBC prison drama Time starring Sean Bean 'helped make the Government's case for a planned crackdown in jails'
Gritty prison drama Time has helped to make the Government's case for a planned crackdown in jails, justice officials believe.

The ground-breaking drama depicts the stark reality of a prisoner's struggle to cope in a jail riddled with gangs and violence.

 Sean Bean stars as school teacher Mark Cobden, a drink-drive killer thrown into a world of prison corruption and relentless violence.

The drama has been hailed for its portrayal of prison life. Its final episode airs on BBC1 tonight.

Now Government officials believe the portrayal will bolster their plans for a tougher regime in jails.

The crackdown will see offenders spend more time in their cells, after male inmates said they felt safer under tougher Covid-19 curbs.

Prisoners revealed they preferred to spend more time locked up, resulting in violent incidents falling by 34 per cent in the past year.

The Government also plans to end 'unstructured associations' – letting prisoners mingle in communal areas for much of the day – in men's prisons after the fall in violence.

Offenders will still be allowed out of their cells to work, or for education and exercise.

A Ministry of Justice source said: 'For the past year we've been able to see the effects of tighter lockdowns on male prisoners. While we're not planning to introduce 23-hour lockdowns, we won't be going back to the old system – it will be somewhere in between.

'Male prisoners feel safer not associating with other dangerous offenders – understandably. Though it's just a drama, the Time series shows what life can be like.'

The measures will be imposed in all 'closed estate' Category A, B and C prisons. Open prisons will not be subject to the measures.

Women's prisons and young offenders' facilities will revert to pre-Covid measures after officials noticed a greater impact on the mental health of offenders.

A White Paper with the lockdown details and measures to reform prisons is expected later this year.

Harrowing diary of real life murderer inspired gritty Sean Bean drama Time
EXCLUSIVE: For the last three Sunday nights, viewers have been gripped by harrowing prison mini-series Time - and the reason it looks and feels so authentic is because it is based on a real killer's experiences

BBC prison drama Time has been praised for its brutal authenticity.

And the reason is because writer Jimmy McGovern was inspired by a real-life killer’s jail diaries.

The man, who uses the pseudonym Jailhouse Moose, got a life sentence for murdering his girlfriend in a drunken rage and now writes a blog.

He and McGovern met at an arts event in prison in 2019.

The inmate, originally from Ireland, said: “We talked Brookside, Cracker, Bloody Sunday, Hillsborough and Mary Queen of Scots. After a photo, Jimmy and I shook hands and I took the cheeky step of handing over a bundle of my own writing. And that was that.”
