Being Eileen COMPLETE S01
The series, written by Michael Wynne, features an ensemble cast. Headed by Sue Johnston, who plays Eileen Lewis, the programme focusses on her, the widowed matriarch of a "large, close-knit and dysfunctional Northern family".The single episode focused on the family’s visit to Lapland, whilst the series focusses on their life in Birkenhead. Elizabeth Berrington and Stephen Graham (later recast to Dean Andrews) play Eileen’s children, whilst William Ash and Julie Graham play their partners. All the cast – Johnston, Berrington, Ash, Julie Graham and Keith Barron- a love interest for Eileen – returned for the series, with the exception of Stephen Graham and Zawe Ashton, who played Jingle Jill.
