The Town is a three-part contemporary drama starring BAFTA winner Andrew Scott alongside an outstanding ensemble cast including Julia McKenzie, Charlotte Riley, Gerard Kearns, Kelly Adams and a very inebriated Martin Clunes. In the aftermath of a family tragedy, 30-year-old Mark Nicholas returns to the town where he grew up, but after 10 years away, coming home is more difficult than he could ever have imagined. An influential mayor is now in charge and there's a claustrophobic sense that everyone knows everyone else's business. As Mark starts to be drawn back into the life he left behind, catching up with school friends and his first love, he must decide whether to stay permanently.
