Sheridan Smith in New BBC Drama The 7.39

Sheridan Smith appears with fellow BAFTA award winner Olivia Colman, David Morrissey and Sean Maguire in The 7.39 two-part drama  on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th January at 9:00 pm on BBC1.

Written by David Nicholls (One Day, Starter For Ten) it is about 45 year old Carl Matthews (Morrissey) and his battle to board the 7:39 train from Waterloo where he encounters the same miserable crowd of commuters every morning.

Happily married to his college best friend Maggie (Colman) and with two sulky teenagers his life has become very predictable until he meets fellow passenger Sally Thom (Smith) after they battle over a seat. She has recently moved out of London to manage a health club and is unsure of her plans to marry personal trainer Ryan (Maguire) and feels unsettled in a her new suburban life.

The pair begin talking and suddenly their monotonous commute becomes a lot more interesting...
