A new television series by Queer As Folk creator Russell T Davies starts on BBC One tonight.


Davies’ first major project since award-winning gay drama A Very English Scandal, Years And Years follows a Manchester family across a 15-year period from 2019 onwards. 

The show features gay character Daniel Lyons, who, in the recently released trailer for the programme, is seen kissing his husband at their wedding.


The new series, which starts at 9pm on Tuesday 14 May, stars Emma Thompson, Rory Kinnear and Last Tango In Halifax star Anne Reid.

Davies is currently working on a new LGBT-themed television series called The Boys, a drama set during the AIDS crisis, which is being filmed this year.


He will also be taking part in a Queer As Folk screening and Q&A event at Birmingham’s Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) on Saturday 18 May. The event forms part of MAC’s Controversy season - a series of screenings and special events focusing on some of the most controversial films and TV programmes ever created.
