The Mill might recreate a dark past for the UK, but it also represents a bright future for Great British acting talent.

The Mill Series 2 is coming to DVD on 8 September 2014, but fans of the powerful, historical drama can pre order their copy right now at Acorn DVD.

Following the hard times of 19th Century cotton workers, The Mill is just about as far removed from Downton Abbey as a period drama can get. Gone are the pristine costumes and perfectly preened actors; the stars of The Mill are literally caked in mud.

In a bid to capture the true essence of life in a Victorian cotton mill, cast were covered in fake dirt between takes, while the conditions on set were freezing. As a result, Quarry Bank Mill explodes onto the screen with authenticity.

The show is based on real life accounts of life at the mill and Series 2 is as enthralling as ever. This six episode run covers the timeframe of 1838 to 1842, a time of great social and political change, in the wake of the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834.

Ok, so The Mill might recreate a dark past for the UK, but it also represents a bright future for Great British acting talent.
There’s the eminently watchable Kerrie Hayes in the role of Esther Price a woman ahead of a time, not just in terms of headstrong independence but also in terms of revolutionary zeal. Matthew McNulty plays Daniel Bate, Chief Engineer and Head of the Union at Quarry Bank Mill. Daniel is a socialist and idealist who doesn’t rail against technology like others of the age, but just as committed to the human beings behind it.

The Mill Series 1 was Channel 4’s most watched drama series of 2013 and now fans and history buffs can take home all of the action from Series 2 before anybody else. Pre order a copy today at http://www.acorndvd.com/the-mill-s2.html
