Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn

This Is England ’86

the series philosopher This Is England '86 wikiThis Is England ’86 is a 2010 British drama series written by Shane Meadows (This Is England ’88) and Jack Thorne (Skins, This Is England ’88). A spin-off from the 2006 film This Is England, and set three years later, it focuses on the mod revival scene rather than the skinhead subculture. Like the film, This Is England ’86 stars Thomas Turgoose as Shaun, although Lol (Vicky McClure, Broadchurch, True Love, This Is England ’88) and Woody (Joe Gilgun, Emmerdale, This Is England ’88, Misfits) play even more central roles.

The story takes place during the 1986 FIFA World Cup. As Shaun completes his last school exam, he realises he will have to find his way in the world. His friends, who include Woody, Lol, Smell (Rosamund Hanson, Shameless), Gadget and Meggy (Perry Benson, Misfits), are still around, looking for love, entertainment and employment.
