Not Mr Bean

Photo from "The Mail"
Stana has alerted me to an upcoming BBC Drama that should interest us.    There is to be a new short series of "Accused", a typical high end BBC production with top rate TV writers attracting high end actors, escaping from type casting in action or comic roles.    This one should be of particular interest because they have Sean Bean player a transgender woman, little has been said about the plot but given that it is written by Jimmy McGovern we can expect something pretty good.   

From the little we do know and the photos shown I am encouraged that this may be a sympathetic, realistic representation, as well as a warning - we will just have to wait and see.
