[Season 1 !Season 2 ]
This is based on a series of books by Malorie Blackman . It is set in an alternate universe, where a sub-saharan African nation conquered the British Isles after the Crusades. Today, London is like South Africa during the Apartheid era - only with the Black people in charge instead of whites. In fact, we could just compare it directly to the modern post-Apartheid country.
Meggie McGregor ( Helen Baxendale ) works as as servant for Home Secretary Kamal Hadley (Paterson Joseph - Timeless ). Her son, Callum McGregor (Jack Rowan), falls for Sephy Hadley ( Masali Baduza ) - the boss's daughter. Real love-across-the-barricades stuff.
Meanwhile, the poor whites are organising as a liberation movement. They are meant to be the equivalent of Black Lives Matter, but they basically come across as the same kind of Tea Party extremists who got Donald Trump elected. Yes, the white working class has been demonised for so long it is now difficult to portay them in a sympathetic way.
