Starring Bryan Dick, Sally Hawkins, Zoe Tapper and Phil Davis; Patrick Hamilton's trilogy of working class London life in the 1930s is captured movingly in this beautifully observed and faithful adaptation. In a world of smoky pubs and foggy lamplights, down-at-heel workers and forlorn lovers, the story focuses on The Midnight Bell, a bar off the Euston Road, and observes the impossibility of love between three protagonists.
