Sean Bean stars as Father Michael Kerrigan, a Catholic priest presiding over a Northern urban parish, in Jimmy McGovern’s new landmark six-part drama.
Modern, maverick and reassuringly flawed, Father Michael is a man who must be confidant, counsellor and confessor to a community struggling to reconcile its beliefs with the realities of daily life in contemporary Britain.
