‘Capital’ trailer: Toby Jones and Lesley Sharp’s new BBC One drama

Posted Filed under

BBC One has released a trailer for Peter Bowker’s adaptation of John Lanchester’s novel Capital.

Starring Toby Jones (The Girl), Lesley Sharp (Scott And Bailey), Wunmi Mosaku (In The Flesh) and Adeel Akhtar (Utopia), the three-part drama is set on a single street in South London and is a portrait of a road transformed by soaring property prices.

Once the home of modest lower-middle class families, Pepys Road has been continuously gentrified into a street of multimillion pound houses.

Capital begins at 9pm on Tuesday 24 November on BBC One.
