Win Jimmy McGovern’s drama Broken on DVD

Win Jimmy McGovern’s powerful drama Broken on DVD, starring Sean Bean and Anna Friel

Broken film

Sean Bean (Sharpe, Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings) stars in Broken, a poignant and powerful BBC Worldwide series centred around his character, Father Michael Kerrigan, a Catholic priest presiding over an urban parish in northern England. He must be a confidant, counsellor and confessor to a congregation struggling to reconcile its beliefs with the challenges of daily life.

With a chequered past and a complicated relationship with his own family, the priest is determined to help his parishioners through their troubles. However, despite his best efforts, Father Michael can’t always fix what’s broken.

From the multi-award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern, Broken also stars Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies). It is released on DVD this week (BBC Worldwide), with extras including the featurettes Sean Bean as Father Michael, Real Life Stories, The Look and Jimmy McGovern’s Writing.

We have five copies to be won on DVD. To enter tell us:
