Starring a wealth of British talent from stage and screen, Southcliffe tells the story of a fictional English market town devastated by a spate of shootings which take place over a single day; a tragedy that has ripped apart the community. The inexplicable chain of events at the dark heart of this four-part mini-series shatters time and space for Southcliffe’s inhabitants.

The first episode of the new Channel 4 drama, which took over much of Faversham last October in order to film in an authentic market town location, aired last night, with the following episode airing tonight (5 Aug).

Sharp-eyed viewers will have noticed that much of 'Part 1 - The Hollow Shore' was filmed at The Market Inn, on East Street as main character, Stephen Morton's local. The series also includes scenes shot at the Sun Inn, just off Faversham's Market Place.

Featuring a cast that includes Rory Kinnear (Black Mirror), Eddie Marsan (Tyrannosaur), Shirley Henderson (Anna Karenina), Sean Harris (Prometheus), Kaya Scodelario (Skins), Joe Dempsie (Skins), Anatol Yusef (Boardwalk Empire) and Nichola Burley (Wuthering Heights), Southcliffe is a drama that is not to be missed!

'Part 2 - Lights Falls', airs tonight on Channel 4 at 9pm
You can watch Part 1 on the 4oD Drama YouTube Channel.
