Meet the cast of SS-GB

Who’s who in the BBC’s new dystopian drama

Louis Serkis as Douggie Archer



Archer’s son.

Where do I recognise him from?

Taboo! The son of actor and director Andy Serkis is currently in the Tom Hardy drama on Saturday nights, so many might be familiar with him as Cholmondeley’s apprentice in that. He was also the Young Hatter in Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Kit Connor as Bob Sheenan


Douggie’s friend. 

Where do I recognise him from?

He was Petya Rostov in War & Peace – and also had a small role in Grantchester last year.

Christina Cole as Mrs Sheenan


Bob’s mother.

Where do I recognise her from? 


Cole was Dr Paula Agard in the US series Suits in 2015, and you might have spotted her as a receptionist in Casino Royale. She also appeared in one 2007 episode of Doctor Who as Lilith, a Carrionite who was banished to the Deep Darkness by the Eternals.
