BBC One have today released their first trailer (below) for the 2014 series of their hit drama The Village, scheduled to air later this summer.
Now set in the 1920’s, series 2 of The Village continues BBC One and writer Peter Moffat’s desire to tell the story of the 20th century, from the point of view of the residents of a small Peak District village.
The new series see’s life move into the decade of the roaring twenties and with it, the age of jazz. As outsiders start bringing in new styles of music and dance, residents also get introduced to new ways of thinking when it comes to love, sex and politics.
When asked about how life was on the Middleton’s farm, The Village season 2 cast member John Simm said: “The farm is in slightly better shape than before. John has moved into dairy farming, they have a herd of cows. The work is hard but Bert works with him and he’s even able to employ a farmhand (Big Henry) to help out.”
Meanwhile, actress Maxine Peake said: “The farm’s taken a bit of a turn upwards and things have picked up. There’s more hope and prospects for the farm. As the series progresses the farm life and Grace’s life and the youngsters lives progress.”
