Bob Hoskins, Rhys Ifans and Sheila Hancock star in BBC One monologues, The Last Word
The cream of British acting talent, Bob Hoskins, Rhys Ifans and Sheila Hancock, star in The Last Word, a trio of cracking contemplative comedy dramas written, produced and directed by Hugo Blick for BBC One
An assassin – Bob Hoskins – waits in a public lavatory for his next target. A dying woman – Sheila Hancock – waits to receive drugs to take her own life. A farmer – Rhys Ifans – tries to find a way to free himself from the yoke of a dominating mother.
These three people don't know each other, but they have one thing in common – they are all about to kill or be killed.
