Searing New C4 Drama From Dominic Savage

Dominic’s new Channel 4 drama is an anthology of three films. And at BAFTA last night we saw the second of the series – “I Am Nicola”. A claustrophobic, intimate and unsettling story of a coercive and abusive relationship between Nicola (Vicky McClure) and Adam (Perry Fitzpatrick).

This was Dominic at the top of his game. Real, emotionally-charged and difficult to watch – but wonderful drama, and very different to the mainstream output from all the channels…however good that might be.

With Samantha Morton and Gemma Chan starring in the other two films, Channel 4 have really got something special on their hands for this summer’s schedules.
