Time cast: Who stars in the BBC One drama?

BBC One's new drama Time has stars from Game of Thrones, Line of Duty and Downtown Abbey in its line-up.

The new prison drama, a three-part series filmed in the former real-life jail HM Prison Shrewsbury, features the story of a new inmate who is out of his depth and a kind security guard who tries to help him.

Frightened inmate Mark Cobden is luckily enough to have prison guard Eric McNally around as he portrays the importance of being a decent guard.

Here's the line-up…

Sean Bean as Mark Codben

If Sean's name rings a bell it's likely down to the fact he played the iconic Eddard 'Ned' Stark in Game of Thrones.

He also starred as Boromir in The Lord of the Rings, Accused (alongside his co-star in Time Stephen Graham), and in Black death.

Sean's character Mark is a father-of-one and former teacher who is charged with four years in prison. Sadly for Mark, he's not equipped for life behind bars.

Stephen Graham as Eric McNally

He co-starred alongside Sean once again in Accused and recently shared his acting talents in Line of Duty.

Stephen is most well known for playing Al Capone in Broadwalk Empire and it's a role that he is rumoured to play again in Peaky Blinders.

In Time, he plays Eric, who is a decent man with high morals and a prison guard in the jail Mark has wound up in. However, his principles are challenged in the series.

Siobhan Finneran as Marie-Louise

Downtown Abbey fans will recognise Siobhan as playing ladies maid Sarah O'Brien in the long-running drama.

In Happy Valley she played Clare Cartwright, and has starred in the likes of The Stranger, The Other One, Cold Feet and A Confession.

In this BBC One drama she acts as the prison's Catholic chaplain.

Paddy Rowan as Daniel McNally

A new actor to the scene, Paddy enters the scene after starring on the likes of Little Boy Blue as Sean Mercer.

He also starred in Amazon Prime Video series Hanna, and in the film Cursed.

In Time he plays a rather interesting character and development of the story – he's prison guard Eric McNally's son and he just so happens to be an inmate at a different prison.

James Nelson-Joyce as Johnno

Every good prison story has to have a bully, and unluckily for Mark Codben that's Johnno.

Johnno arrives at the same time as Mark and has very violent tendencies and little awareness for the rules.

If you're a Little Boy Blue fan, you may recognise James as playing James Yate.

He also starred in The Virtues, World on Fire, and the film The Nest.

Kadiff Kirwan as Pete

Starring as a dangerous inmate who is serving time at the same time as a nervous Mark and in the care of Eric, Pete is the inmate you want to be on the good side of.

Kardiff played Aron in Chewing Gum, Anthony in the iconic hit Fleabag, DC Wesley Ross in Netflix series The Stranger.

He also played officer Tom in I May Destroy You, and Bradley in This Way Up.

Bobby Schofield as Baz

Baz is an inmate whose reputation risks making him a target to more dangerous prisoners.

Bobby as starred previpusly as Clover in the Tom Holland film Cherry, and in Black Sea he played Tobin.

His other films include Locked Down, Knightfall, and How to Build a Girl.

Cal MacAninch as Galbraith

Galbraith is another prison guard working beside Eric McNally.

You may remember Cal as starring in both Vigil and Des and in some well known dramas including Downtown Abbey.

He has also starred in Banished and Mr Selfridge.

Sue Johnston as June Codben

Starring as Mark Codben's mother, June appears as she visits her son in prison.

Sue is best known for playing Barbara Royle in The Royle Family.

Her other TV and film credits include The Walking Dead, Downtown Abbey, Little Dorrit, Hold the Sunset, and Being Eileen.

David Calder as John Cobden

John is Mark Cobden's father, who he shares with June Cobden.

David recently starred in Motherland, a BBC comedy.

He also starred in Bulletproof and films including The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Rush, and in the James Bond film The World is Not Enough.

Time airs weekly on BBC One, starting at 9pm on Sunday 6 June.
