Written by BAFTA TV Award winning writer Paula Milne (The Politician's Wife), White Heat is a new drama series about the interwoven lives, loves and betrayals of seven characters whose relationships are forged in the white heat of the sixties through to the present day.
Charting the lives of seven friends from 1965 through to the present day, the series is framed around relationships; complex, volatile, life affirming and life changing--set in motion when they come together as a diverse group of young students to live as flat mates in London's Tufnell Park: rebel with a cause Jack (Sam Claflin), intelligent feminist Charlotte (Claire Foy), fragile beauty Lilly (MyAnna Buring), medical student Jay (Reece Ritchie), electronics enthusiast Alan (Lee Ingleby), law student Victor (David Gyasi) and big-hearted Orla (Jessica Gunning).
The series follows them over four decades as their lives, loves and destinies are shaped by the political events of each era--from the death of Churchill, the union strife of the Seventies, the ascendancy of Thatcher, the Falklands, Aids, the end of the Cold War to the present day. Their intertwined personal lives played against the backcloth of these crucial events converge to make them the people they are today.
