What is Dave Allen At Peace about?

Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen puts on his sharpest suit to play Irish comedian and satirist Dave Allen in this hour-long BBC2 biopic.

The drama follows Dave Allen from his happy childhood in Dublin through to his glory years as one of the UK and Ireland's comedy greats. We'll see the tragic loss of his kindly father (played by Tommy Tiernan) and brother John (Conleth Hill), and explore the enduring mystery over the loss of half a finger.

The comic died in 2005 at the age of 68.
