The first promotional image has been revealed for BBC One’s new feature-length drama Common, written by Accused creator Jimmy McGovern.

Set in the north west of England, the 90-minute film stars Nico Mirallegro (The Village), Daniel Mays (Ashes to Ashes), Sir Michael Gambon (Doctor Who) and Jodhi May (Strike Back).

Common will air on BBC One this spring and examines the potential for injustice with the Joint Enterprise or Common Purpose rule; a young man gives friends an impromptu lift to a pizza parlour and finds himself charged with murder.
