TV This Is England, 86 (Channel 4 2010, Thomas Turgoose) Published 3 years ago on August 13, 2016 A continuation of Shane Meadow’s film, hard hitting drama series This is England, 86 is naturally enough set in 1986 when Shaun (who in This Is England was 13) is now getting ready to leave school, the gang he had is no more but Shaun is still a trouble magnet. A chance meeting with former gang member Woody gets the group back together and all thoughts of the real world of looking for jobs and a future are pushed to one side. Strong casting and a great sense of period, This Is England, 86 is a world of Thatcherite misery post miners strike, sporting misery with England knocked out of the world cup by the hand of Maradona and the sense of frustration and lack of opportunity faced by the working class youth of the time. Clearly influenced by writer-director Shane Meadow’s own teenage years it is sure to resonate strongly with anyone who was also a teenager in the mid eighties. production details UK / Channel 4 – Warp Films / 4×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 7 – 28 September 2010 Tuesdays @ 10.00pm Writers: Jack Thorne, Shane Meadows / Production Design: Lisa Marie Hall / Producer: Mark Herbert / Directors: Shane Meadows, Tom Harper cast THOMAS TURGOOSE as Shaun PERRY BENSON as Meggy STEPHEN GRAHAM as Combo JOE GILGUN as Woody VICKY McCLURE as Lol ROSAMUND HANSON as Smell JO HARTLEY as Mum PERRY FITZPATRICK as Flip CHANEL CRESSWELL as Kelly JOSEPH DEMPSIE as Higgy KATHERINE DOW BLYTON as Chrissy KRISS DOSANJH as Mr Sandhu ANDREW ELLIS as Gadget GEORGE NEWTON as Banjo ANDREW SHIM as Milky HANNAH WALTERS as Trudy DANIELLE WATSON as Trev MICHAEL SOCHA as Harvey THE EPISODES 1.
