Sky Atlantic confirms transmission date for Save Me Too

We kind of can’t wait for series two of Lennie James’s Save Me – or Save Me Too as it’ll be called. The first series was one of the darkest, most intense and impressive British crime dramas in recent years. Now we know when it’ll appear on our screens. This is not the end of…

Sky Atlantic drops first trailer for series two of Save Me

The yellow puffer jacket is on its way back. Sky Atlantic’s Save Me – which reached our top five in 2017’s best crime dramas – is set to return in a short while, complete with Lennie James in the title role as anti-hero, Nelly. And now we have a trailer. At the end of series…

Lesley Manville joins Save Me, plot lines for series two revealed

British drama Save Me was one of our favourites last year, and the Lennie James-starring series is coming back soon for a second run. The first series told the story of Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe (James) and his search for Jody, his missing daughter. It also boasted an incredible ensemble cast that included Suranne Jones, Stephen…

Review: Save Me (S1 E6/6), Wednesday 4th April, Sky Atlantic

Yes, I know. It has been two weeks since the final episode of Lennie James’ British redemption noir, Save Me, and I haven’t posted my review yet. Real life got in the way, unfortunately, but today – a Sunday – I’m finally sitting down to write a review of a show that has left me…

Exclusive interview: Thomas Coombes, Save Me

I’ve been enjoying Save Me – Lennie James’s Sky Atlantic urban noir – but I’m not entirely sure that ‘enjoying’ is the right word. It has been one of the most difficult series I’ve ever watched, and after such an intriguing and jovial start, too. The series finale is tomorrow night (Wednesday 4th April), and…

Review: Save Me (S1 E5/6), Wednesday 28th March, Sky Atlantic

We’ve gone through the mill with Save Me – Lennie James’ often-superb, sometimes excruciating urban noir – but with only two episodes to go you got a sense that we had only just scratched the surface of a wound so rancid and pus-ridden, you almost wished it didn’t have to go there. But Nelly’s redemption is…

Sky Atlantic confirms series two of Save Me

Sky Atlantic’s Save Me – Lennie James’s often stunning (and often bleak) British crime drama – has been recommissioned by Sky for a second series. It has been rumbling along on Sky Atlantic, but if you have Now TV you might have watched the whole series via its boxset service. So we won’t say too…

Review: Save Me (S1 E4/6), Wednesday 21st March, Sky Atlantic

The first three episodes of this excellent urban noir have careered from one thing to the other, the other being a dark-as-night story of a potential paedophile ring in south London. We saw this storyline developing in episode three, and now, as the final half of the series begins, we were fully thrown down into…

Review: Save Me (S1 E3/6), Wednesday 14th March, Sky Atlantic

So far Save Me has had a bit of everything – starting off in a hugely naturalistic, rhythmic and familiar fashion, as we were introduced to Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe (Lennie James) and his motley crew of mates who lived in and around a south London housing estate. Then, his carefree life changed – shockingly, irrevocably:…

Review: Save Me (S1 E2/6), Wednesday 7th March, Sky Atlantic

Last week’s opening episode of Save Me was, without doubt, one of the most impressive first episodes we’ve seen for a quite a long time. In it, we were introduced to loveable rogue Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe (Lennie James), who oozed that old-school, urban charismas but also displayed worrying amounts of arrogance. Alongside him were a…
