BBC’s The Gold to Return


The hit drama The Gold is set to return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer for a second season.

The series is inspired by the true story of the 1983 Brink’s-Mat robbery and the decades-long chain of events that followed. Hugh Bonneville is set to reprise his role as Brian Boyce.

More returning cast members include Charlotte Spencer (Nicki Jennings), Emun Elliott (Tony Brightwell), Tom Cullen (John Palmer), Stefanie Martini (Marnie Palmer) and Sam Spruell (Charlie Miller).

The Gold season two is produced by Tannadice Pictures, the joint venture set up by Neil Forsyth and Objective Fiction, part of Objective Media Group, an All3Media Company, for the BBC. It is produced in association with All3Media International. All3Media International will distribute.

Season one of the show is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Forsyth, writer and executive producer, said: “I am delighted that we have been given the opportunity to tell the rest of the Brink’s-Mat story, which sees the consequences of the robbery and its aftermath grow only more surprising, dramatic and far-reaching, both in Britain and around the world.”

Lindsay Salt, director of BBC Drama, added: “We’re immensely proud to partner with Neil Forsyth and the team to continue the story of The Gold. Millions of viewers across the U.K. were enthralled with its gripping and confident exploration of the fallout from the notorious Brink’s-Mat robbery and, as we saw, there’s still so much more left for DCS Boyce and the team to uncover.”
