Granada gold
3 September 2009 | by darren shanSee all my reviews

This is a stand-alone episode from a series of (as far as I am aware) one-off plays, each of which was centred around events taking place in a different village hall. In this, the first to air, a national election is taking place and the village hall has been converted into a polling station for the day. A tired old pro (Moody) is in charge, assisted by an eager young man with high-flying political dreams, and a young woman who is besotted with the would-be PM. Over the course of the day, members of the public file in to cast their votes, while mini-dramas unfurl among the trio of officials in attendance. A decent script by Jack Rosenthal is reason enough to watch this, but a major bonus is the cast -- as well as veteran Moody, you can catch the likes of Bernard Hill and Michael Angelis (stars of Boys From The Blackstuff), Liz Dawn (who found fame as Vera Duckworth in Coronation Street), and an almost unrecognizable, bearded and relatively thin (!!!) Richard Griffiths (from History Boys, Withnail & I, etc). A little gem from the Granada vaults, definitely worth tracking down and casting your vote for!!!!
