BBC One’s two-part romantic drama The 7.39 will premiere on Monday January 6th at 9pm, with the concluding part following on Tuesday January 7th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Penned by award-winning writer David Nicholls, The 7.39 follows Sally and Carl, who begin talking after fighting for a seat on their morning commute and suddenly their daily train journey becomes a lot more interesting. Relatively happy in their home lives, they are, however, drawn to each other, and as their friendship grows to flirtation they refuse to admit – to each other or themselves – that a line might be crossed. The consequences of discovery will be life-changing, catastrophic perhaps, and yet they can’t help falling in love. The serial is produced by NBCUniversal’s Carnival Films and stars David Morrissey (The Walking Dead), Sheridan Smith (Mrs Biggs), Olivia Colman (Broadchurch) and Sean Maguire (Scott & Bailey).
