Why are dramas set in and around housing estates always so damn grim? He is currently starring in long-running zombie drama, , playing Morgan. When Melon disappears after being arrested, Nelly suspects he may be involved in Jody's disappearance and with the help of Goz, decides to track him down. I initially thought exactly the same as you that he was preoccupied, but then changed my mind for the reasons explained in my post above. Yet the huge amount of time required to get around the city was a godsend. Nelly discovers that his supposed victim is his estranged thirteen-year-old daughter Jody, whom he has not seen in ten years.
As a result, Nelly heads on a mission to clear his name by finding the real abductor and save his daughter. It's also been airing every Wednesday at 9. Lots of things I'd be interested in finding out. Now our irresponsible hero is forced to save not only his life, but also the life of a little girl - daughter in the season 1 Save Me. Who was it that beat Nelly with the snooker-ball filled socks? Complex and contradictory, desperate for redemption, James makes Nelly feel incredibly real.
He must've been doing something right, because he even managed to persuade Doctor Foster herself Suranne Jones to be his co-star. The only weak link for me was Suranne Jones, who could have been in another drama. The gripping series continues to air on Sky Atlantic in weekly instalments each Wednesday at 9pm. And the snooker hall scene - wow! As I said in the other thread, I thought the series was excellent. He starred as Nelly, a local barfly whose estranged daughter, Jody, is kidnapped, turning his world upside down as he becomes increasingly desperate to find her. Across the board, I wanted us to confound expectation in our design, blocking, performances, pace and emotional weight, even the shot selection and music choices.
It first broadcast on on 28 February 2018, with all six episodes being released via Sky Box Sets and on the same day. James will be reprising his central role as Nelly Rowe, while Jones returns as his former lover, Claire. Stars Lennie James and Suranne Jones will both return for the second series of Save Me. Found it, the above posted by Soomacdoo, I agree in a way with what you've said but it seems a bit harsh to lay what happened to Jody at Nelly's door like that, the child went missing because of the weirdo who orchestrated it all. Series 1 of Save Me focused on Nelly being accused of kidnapping a daughter that he barely even knew about, who he fathered with Claire. What a dreadful thing to do, just because you thought someone was arrogant, total sociopath. In 2012, he appeared as a mercenary in James Bond flick Skyfall, and has since appeared in the 2017 Transformers instalment as well as Last Knights with Morgan Freeman.
But in this case I think you have a point. However, many fans have binge-watched the entire season in one go and are now asking about the ending of the tense thriller. Ending also a let down for some. The blue blink of a iPhone camera, the downward glance of an uneasy teenager, a fresh-faced smile, and the words that spell obvious disaster: 'Don't worry about me mum. Later on, Nelly thought he'd found his daughter, however it turned out to be a different girl who had a resemblance to the youngester. Thanks for starting this thread. The intensity was brilliant and his portrayal of a desperate father was absolutely fantastic.
What is Save Me about? Jody Indeyarna Donaldson-Holness is abducted and he gets the blame. Which is a pretty good sign. Barry makes a surprising reward offer at a press conference, leading Claire to suspect his motives. Nelly isn't an easy man to like: a drinker, a chancer, sleeping around, skirting the edge of the law, an angry man teetering on the edge of violence. Other credits include Bad Move, Miranda, Him and Her, and Our Girl. As I said on the original thread I thought that this was a brilliant drama, with fantastic acting and story telling.
Loving Save Me on Sky. In a strange sort of way, I loved the realistic but heartbreaking ending. Set on a high rise estate in Deptford, Nelly Lennie James is the estranged father under suspicion after his daughter Jody, played by Indeyarna Donaldson-Holness goes missing, a child he hasn't seen for over a decade. Well I thought guilt, but when it became apparent that it was really the other one who was to blame for it all I'm not sure what the one who died acutely did, or have I got that wrong? The Deptford estate is a grim rabbit-warren of cramped, run-down flats, peopled with characters surviving on benefits with a side-order of petty crime. We don't have an exact release date yet but we know Save Me is set to premiere on Sky Atlantic in February. The final of the six-part drama Nelly played by Lennie James continued to search for his young daughter Jody Indeyarna Donaldson-Holness.
He was wound up about the photo, and when he stepped into the road he was looking at his mate across the other side, who he maybe wanted to challenge about it - he just walked out too preoccupied to look to see if there was traffic. Save Me is incredibly strong, sometimes desperately sad, and an often moving piece of work from James. More to come as soon as I can sit down to write it! The council estate where much of the action takes place in the series was filmed in south east London flats for the exterior shots but inside shots were filmed in an abandoned flat complex in Stratford. Later that night, Nelly is attacked after his girlfriend's son discovers he has been cheating on her with a number of other women. He was wound up about the photo, and when he stepped into the road he was looking at his mate across the other side, who he maybe wanted to challenge about it - he just walked out too preoccupied to look to see if there was traffic. I also think the student, Luke knew where she was and Gav killed himself because he was scared of Nelly and jointly feeling guilty about what happened.
After attempting to convince the police of his innocence, Nelly decides to take matters into his own hands and track Jody down himself. I thought Suranne Jones was just playing. Really enjoyed this, the last 20 minutes or so of the last episode I was shaking. His local pub the Palm Tree is also a prominent setting in the programme as a focal point for the characters and their community. The student who died after stepping into the road - I think he killed himself because of guilt.
