In this political drama by acclaimed writer James Graham, charting the emotionally wrought and frenzied days in 2010 that led to Nick Clegg’s rise from rank outsider to the man who would decide the fate of the country. As he took to the podium for the UK’s first-ever televised leaders’ debate, the Lib Dem leader (played by Bertie Carvel) had been an MP for just five years and was the new kid on the Westminster block.
Living in the shadow of Gordon Brown and David Cameron, his party was relegated to the sidelines. But as he finished his impassioned speech, something stirred the public’s need for change, and threatened to shake the current political system to its core.
