TV 32 Brinkburn Street (BBC-1 2011, Rebecca Callard, Maggie Steed) Published 3 years ago on June 22, 2016 Like the similarly themed drama Marchlands, 32 Brinkburn Street is not only the story of two families but also of the house itself. A strong daytime series stripped across a week the story begins in 1931 when Walter Olgilvie is covering up a dark secret in the walls of the attic. Looking on is his wife Gracie and mother-in-law Elizabeth. Meanwhile 80 years later in 2011 Frank Olgivie has lived in the house for his entire life but doesn’t know the secret of the attic that could tear his family to pieces. His daughter Ellie and her husband Nick have recently moved back into the family home along with Ellie’s step-daughter Poppy. More than just a good drama 32 Brinkburn Street also offers up a good contrast in the way that our grandparents lived and the way we live now. The action moves fluidly between the two time frames, both families are struggling financially – back in the 1930’s Gracie is even forced to take in a lodger, the mysterious Sid, to make ends meet. The casting is great too, not only the marvellous Maggie Steed but Ciaran McMenamin and Rebecca Callard who hasn’t been seen on TV enough over the last few years. classic quote “Nobody talks about this, ever”… production details UK | BBC1 RUNNING TIME: 45 minutes | NUMBER OF EPISODES: 5 | AIRDATES: Monday 28 March – Friday 1 April 2011 Creator: Karen Laws / Script Supervisor: Mandy Mason / Music: Ty Unwin / Production Design: Andrea Hughes / Executive Producers: Gerard Melling, Jessica Pope, Hilary Martin / Producer: Erika Hossington / Director: Daniel Wilson cast REBECCA CALLARD as Gracie Olgilvie JACK DEAM as Walter Olgilvie MAGGIE STEED as Elizabeth EVA POPE as Ellie CIARAN McMENAMIN as Sid RAFFEY CASSIDY as Nora JOE DIXON as Nick DAVID ROSS as Frank TISHA MERRY as Poppy ADAM BOLTON as Michael AMY TICKLE as Violet SEAMUS GUBBINS as Patrick JOAN KEMPSON as June TIM DANTAY as Bill JOHN CATTERALL as Violet’s Boyfriend STEVE JACKSON as David WUNMI MOSAKU as Joy ANDREW READMAN as Doctor Lloyd BBC-1Ciaran McManaminDavid RossEva PopeJack DeamMaggie SteedParanormalPeriod dramaRebecca CallardTelefantasyTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes12 mins ago Big Texas Fix: Dream House (S1EP7 DIY Sat 25 May 2019) Dream House: Michael and Ashley stumble upon a pre-1900s Victorian home after doing some curbside dumpster diving, so they hit...
