I TALK Capital

BBC One's new three-part drama Capital is a portrait of a single street in South London transformed by soaring house prices.

Written by Peter Bowker (Marvellous), Capital is based on the 2012 novel of the same name by John Lanchester and stars Toby Jones (Marvellous, Detectorists), Lesley Sharp (Scott & Bailey, The Shadow Line) and Adeel Akhtar (River, Utopia).


If you're a fan of BBC Four comedy Detectorists, then watching Toby Jones and Rachael Stirling playing a married couple might seem a little strange at first, as in Detectorists she plays his best friend's wife.


Set on a single street in South London, Pepys Road, Capital is a portrait of a road transformed by soaring property prices. What was once the home of modest lower-middle class families, the road has been continuously gentrified into a street of multi-million pound houses.
