After being postponed last week in the wake of the Manchester bombing, Jimmy McGovern’s drama Broken finally made it to TV last night – and it’s safe to say its delayed debut still made a real impact.
The story about a priest, played by Sean Bean, who had been abused as a boy and was now trying to help a poor northern community, touched the hearts of viewers around the UK, as did Anna Friel’s performance as a single mum struggling to look after her children.
Overall, then, not a dry eye in the house.
