Time, one of the most acclaimed series of 2021, comes to RTÉ One and the RTÉ Player on Tuesday night.

Game of Thrones' Sean Bean and Line of Duty's Stephen Graham star in the prison drama from Cracker writer Jimmy McGovern, which premiered on BBC One during the summer.

The synopsis for Time reads: "Mark Cobden (Sean Bean) is newly imprisoned, consumed by guilt for his crime, and way out of his depth in the volatile world of prison life.

"He meets Eric McNally (Stephen Graham), an excellent prison officer doing his best to protect those in his charge.

"However, when one of the most dangerous inmates identifies his weakness, Eric faces an impossible choice; between his principles and his family."

Time also stars Siobhan Finneran, Sue Johnston, Hannah Walters, David Calder, Nadine Marshall, Michael Socha, Aneurin Barnard, Jack McMullen and James Nelson-Joyce.

The three-part series begins on RTÉ One on Tuesday, 7 December at 10:15pm and will also be available on the RTÉ Player.
