Snowpiercer: Sean Bean revealed in season two teaser

Time is the creation of writer Jimmy McGovern who was responsible for series including Cracker, Hillsborough, The Lakes, The Street and Accused.

Probably best known for Lord of the Rings, Sean Bean will portray teacher and family man Mark Hebden in Time.

But his life is destroyed when he accidentally kills a man and so, consumed with guilt, welcomes his four-year prison sentence.

Having been taken away from his family, Mark is left uneasy about life beyond the prison walls and what to expect from life inside.

While there are dangers lurking in every corner, there is someone who wants to do his best to help the inmates.

This Is England actor Stephen Graham is Eric Reid in Time, a prison officer at the establishment where Mark is being held.

Caring and honest, Eric does what he can to protect those he is in charge of but there are daily challenges he must continually overcome.

He’ll have a major problem in the shape of one of the prison’s most dangerous inmates though when they discover his weakness.

But how will Eric cope with handling his job at the prison and protecting the ones he loves?

When will Time on BBC start?

Time was commissioned earlier this year by the BBC but filming hadn’t been able to start until reasonably recently.

This is of course because of the pandemic, as the filming schedule had to be put back.

The cast and crew of Time are now currently filming in and around Liverpool for the three-part drama.

So as of writing this article, no release date has been revealed for Time.

Alongside Bean and Graham, there will be numerous other familiar faces starring in the prison drama.

Talking about Time, Bean said: “Getting to be involved in a Jimmy McGovern drama again is a real privilege and it will be great to be reunited with Stephen [Graham].

“Mark Hebden is another of Jimmy’s complex and superbly written characters and I am looking forward to bringing him to life on screen.”

Graham added: “I’m excited to be working with Lewis [Arnold, director] as I have heard so many incredible things about him as a director, I can’t wait to get stuck in.

“Of course, I am made up to be back on set with Sean.”

Time will be released in 2021 on BBC One.
