Charles Dance in black studded leather: We've seen it all now. This is Common Ground, the new series of comedy shorts coming to us courtesy of Sky Atlantic. In this first of ten installments, veteran actor Dance stars as Floyd, a former rock 'n' roll tour manager who has a complicated relationship with his uptight ballet teacher daughter Becky (Amelia Bullmore) and her husband Jack (Hugo Speer). He's a bit of a handful y'see. Expect the likes of Jessica Hynes and Johnny Vegas in later episodes.
Common Ground Sky Atlantic: 9.00pm
