Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves

Series 1 - Episode 1



To mark World Aids Day (1 December), a three-part Swedish drama that won awards when it first aired last year. The title is a reprimand from one nurse to another after a chilling opening: a patient with Aids writhes on his deathbed during the epidemic that swept Stockholm in the 1980s. But most of episode one takes place a few, more carefree, years earlier, when we meet two young men learning how to cope in a society that doesn’t accept homosexuality. As we’ve come to expect from Scandinavia, it’s beautifully done.


New series. Swedish drama set in 1980s Stockholm, starring Adam Lundgren and Adam Palson as a same-sex couple who fall in love under the shadow of the global Aids epidemic. In the first episode, Benjamin, a Jehovah's Witness, accepts an invitation to a Christmas party, where he falls in love with Rasmus. With Simon J Berger, Marie Richardson and Emil Almen.
