How Jimmy McGovern's Common challenges injustice

1 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jimmy McGovern’s new one-off BBC drama, Common, seeks to highlight the controversies of the Joint Enterprise doctrine…


In 1846, two men named John Swindall and James Osborne engaged in a cart race on a public road that caused the death of a pedestrian. Only one vehicle had killed the victim, but as both had encouraged the other to drive dangerously, Swindall and Osborne were judged to be acting on a common intention and were both charged with manslaughter. The case ushered in the Joint Enterprise doctrine in English law, whereby two or more people who agree to commit a crime together are liable for the criminal actions of other members of their group.

Joint Enterprise. It sounds like a judicious scheme. Why should members of a group who set out with the common goal of murder evade justice only because they didn’t - or it couldn’t be »

Trailer for Jimmy McGovern's Common

23 June 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

BBC One will air Common, a feature-length film by Cracker creator Jimmy McGovern, on Sunday the 6th of July...


It may not have a sci-fi, fantasy or cult bone in its body, but it's tremendous original UK drama and as such, we didn't think you'd mind us sneaking Jimmy McGovern's Common onto the site.

Due to air on BBC One on Sunday the 6th of July, the ninety-minute film tells the story of a teenager dragged into a murder investigation that threatens to upturn his entire life. The cast, as McGovern's casts tend to be, has no weak links, from Game Of Thrones' Michelle Fairley and Robert Pugh to Susan Lynch, Daniel Mays, Jodhi May and relative newcomer Nico Mirallegro.

Here's the first trailer for the feature-length drama from the creator of CrackerThe Street and the terrific Accused.
