English Literature GCSE: Never Let Me Go - Characters
Some of the key characters in Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro are explored through police interview-style dramatisation.
The four characters of Cathy, Ruth, Tommy and Miss Lucy are interviewed separately by police officers.
They respond to questions designed to explore their respective motivations for their actions in the novel and gain a deeper understanding of events from a variety of different perspectives.
This short film is from the BBC Teach series: LIT P.D.
This short film could be used as part of an exploration of character and theme, either after an initial reading or as part of a revision activity.
Students could use this film as stimulus for their own presentation on a different character from the novel, or as the basis for an essay-style response to one of the characters explored in this film.
This short film is suitable for teaching English literature at GCSE in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 5 and Higher in Scotland.
