Acclaimed prison series 'Time' soon to be seen on BBC First
Quote
The new British drama series Time will soon air on BBC First. DeLagarde reports that. The three-part prison series, starring  Stephen Graham  and  Sean Bean, scores a very nice 8.3 on IMDb and fans who have seen it begged for a second season almost immediately afterwards.
Time has been broadcast on the British television channel BBC One since June 6 and tells the story of Mark Cobden, an English teacher who ends up behind bars for a crime and has to find a way to survive. The character, played by Bean, is assisted by warden Eric McNally (Stephen Graham), who faces an impossible dilemma when he learns that other inmates have discovered his weakness. The last episode of the three-part series was broadcast on 20 June and can therefore also be viewed on BBC First, available in the Netherlands, from 1 September.

Sean Bean is alive and well and living in Somerset
British actor, famous for his on-screen deaths, plays a newly arrived inmate in the prison drama Time
Quote
No, Sean Bean does not die in the new British miniseries Time.

It’s an understandable concern, given that the English actor has developed a reputation for perishing onscreen, often in ways that are dramatic (The Lord of the Rings), gruesome (Game of Thrones) or both. But he takes the topic in his good-natured stride.

 “It’s the first thing that people say: Do you die in this?” he says with a chuckle. “It’s nice to be able to say: Wait and see. It’s not something that I’ve ever been that worried about. Certainly not early on in my career, because I was playing some really bad people, very bad guys, and they kind of deserved to die. They didn’t have much of a future ahead of them.”

He continues: “Now I’d prefer not to die because I think I’ve done it that many times and there’s got to be a really good reason if I’m going to die again. I prefer to stay alive. But I’ve never really complained about it. I’m very proud of my death scenes.”

In Time, Bean stars as Mark Cobden, a high school teacher sentenced to four years in prison. “I killed a man,” he tells a fellow inmate, though we soon learn it was drunk driving and not murder.

His costar is fellow northerner Stephen Graham, who plays prison officer Eric McNally. The two have a history on the screen, having played a transvestite (Bean) and his boyfriend (Graham) in a 2012 episode of Accused, written by British screenwriter Jimmy McGovern, who also wrote Time. And Bean also starred as a Catholic priest in McGovern’s 2017 TV drama Broken.

“He’s a great writer,” says Bean. “He’s very well respected over here in the U.K., and actors want to work with him because of his skill at creating brilliant dramas. He seems to get under the skin of the characters.”

That is certainly the case with Time, which presents realistic, three-dimensional figures. Bean’s character is initially out of his depth in prison, but soon learns ways to adapt, some of them unexpected. And Graham, far from the stereotype of the sadistic prison guard, is a tough but fair-minded fellow, forced into doing something illegal after some of the inmates threaten his son, who is doing time in a different jail.

Bean says he was sold on the strength of the script. “I read it and I was just amazed at how he managed to incorporate everything that is controversial and topical … something that was so moving and so tragic and yet hopeful. It had all those ingredients.”

The setting also had an appeal for the actor. “I’ve always been quite fascinated by that aspect of life and how things occur in prison,” he says. “We all like watching dramas or documentaries about prison because we know we’re not in there. There’s a kind of macabre fascination.”

He resolutely avoided doing too much research, the better to capture the sense of confusion and dislocation as his character first arrives in prison at the beginning of the first chapter of the three-part series.

“I wanted it to be a shock and a surprise, to kind of be genuinely bewildered and confused and scared,” he says. “To be faced with that kind of mayhem and madness, that is something that I wanted to be unaware of until I actually shot the scenes. That’s what it would be like, and that’s what I wanted an audience to feel.”

Bean is speaking from his home in Somerset, having just returned from Vancouver, where he’s been working on the third season of the post-apocalyptic series Snowpiercer – in which he doesn’t die, or at least not yet.

“I play a villain in that but he’s a very charming villain,” he says. “There’s something about him that people like. And that’s the other side of the coin, whereas Mark Cobdon, I guess he’s a little bit more like me. He’s a bit of an introvert, he’s quiet, he listens to things, he takes things in. I like to play characters that are quite innocent in some sense and not tending to know everything.”

He continues: “And not necessarily loads of dialogue, but something where you can see the person that you’re playing taking in their surroundings and the emotions from other people around them, and how that affects them. Sometimes it’s good to just soak things up and react without saying a word … which is not very common these days, not very often you get writers who actually write in pauses and time to reflect. And that’s what Jimmy McGovern does.”

My time almost up, I ask Bean about his most famous role (and death) in The Lord of the Rings, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this December. Surprisingly, he lights up at the mention of it.

“I think about it most days really,” he says. “It was just something that made such an impact on me. Almost a year of my life being over there [in New Zealand] with everyone and bringing this book that I’d read as a kid to life. I’d have never dreamed that I would be playing the character of Boromir!”

The magical nature of the subject matter, he says, seemed to spill over into the production. “It felt like we were in another world … and we could just imagine and try anything and be anything we wanted to be. Such fond memories. And it certainly helped all of us in our careers, but that wasn’t really the idea. It was just being able to work with someone like Peter Jackson and all these other brilliant actors.”

He singles out Christopher Lee, who was almost 80 at the time. Lee had starred in the movie Dracula in 1958, the year before Bean was born, and the younger actor still remembers watching it as a boy. “Being terrified by him!”

When Lee died in 2015 at the age of 93, he held an interesting record, since broken by American actor Danny Trejo. He had perished more times on-screen than any other performer, with more than 60 deaths, including one as Saruman in The Lord of the Rings.

Bean, with a mere 25 deaths, is a relative lightweight. But give him time.

Time is available now on the streaming service BritBox in Canada.

Most prison shows present problems for Catholics. But ‘Time’ defies the stereotypes of the genre.
Quote
In his long career, McGovern has created a number of series that explore and celebrate the complex humanity of their characters. His 2017 series “Broken,” which focused on the struggling parishioners of a northern England Catholic parish (run by Sean Bean’s Father Michael Kerrigan), feels almost like a companion piece to “Time.” There, too, the drama lies in digging into the lived reality of people who have done terrible things and are usually then written off as “the deadbeat mom,” “the bad cop” or “the embezzler.” (“Broken” and two of McGovern’s anthology series—“The Street” and “Moving On”—are also available on BritBox.)

To watch McGovern’s work in “Time” and elsewhere is to appreciate that our own time doesn’t end with any single choice or series of choices, even the very worst ones. Neither does anyone else’s, no matter what they have done. We may lose certain things as a consequence of the things we have done, but we never lose our humanity. And the road of redemption is one we walk together.

'Around Runcorn' cited as filming location for gritty BBC prison drama

Quote
A politician has hailed the number of solar panels on the roofs in a “working class neighbourhood” during a scene in the BBC primetime drama Time starring Stephen Graham and Sean Bean as she noted the show was filmed “around Runcorn”.

Sian Berry, Green Party leader and London Assembly member, asked Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, if he had also been struck by the “extraordinary shot” in the show which showed an aerial view of rooftops, many of which were fitted with solar panels.
