The BBC bring us another bout of sombre yet dramatic period drama next year.
The BBC Press Office has today announced that BBC1 period drama The Village has been commissioned for a second season. Currently set in the days of the Great War, this new drama stars John Simm and Maxine Peake, and will develop throughout the 20th Century in future seasons starting with the 'Roaring Twenties' in Season Two. It should be interesting to watch how the life of this English village develops in such a different era, especially if the whole decade is likely to be covered this time around. The Village continues every Sunday on BBC1, and will return for a second season of six episodes in Spring 2014.
