“The story is in some regards about the price he is prepared to pay to get to the top position and the price that he forces everyone else to pay, principally his family, but also those who pledge their loyalty to him,” says Hugh.

Meanwhile, Peaky Blinders actress Helen McCrory plays the Prime Minister, who must try and keep Laurence’s ambitions in check.

Penned by Collateral writer Sir David Hare, Roadkill promises to be a brilliant watch.
