The first three series of the Channel 4 drama written and directed by Shane Meadows revisiting the characters from his 2007 film 'This Is England'. In 'This Is England '86' Thomas Turgoose reprises his role as Shaun, a school-leaver with few prospects in mid-1980s England. Shaun and his friends must attempt to deal with the issues posed by the transition to adulthood in an unstable social climate where 3.4 million people are unemployed and there are strikes, race riots and anti-nuclear protests. The events of 'This Is England '88' take place two years on from the initial spin-off series. Set in and around Christmas, there is a distinct absence of festive spirit as Lol (Vicky McClure) and Woody (Joe Gilgun) struggle to come to terms with events from the past. Shaun, meanwhile, learns first-hand the pain that love can bring. 'This Is England '90' follows the friends throughout the four seasons of 1990 as Shaun, Kelly (Chanel Cresswell), Trev (Danielle Watson) and Gadget (Andrew Ellis) throw themselves into the Madchester rave scene, Lol and Woody prepare to get married and Combo (Stephen Graham) is released from prison.

Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play.  'This Is England is an extraordinary project' - The Guardian 'The most important British drama this century so far' - Huffington Post 'There's been no other recent UK drama with the gut punch of This Is England' - The Telegraph 'Britain's most electrifying TV show' - Shortlist Written and directed by Shane Meadows, the multiple BAFTA winning Channel 4 drama series' This Is England 86, 88 and 90 follow on from critically acclaimed 2006 film This Is England . Shaun (Thomas Turgoose), Woody (Joe Gilgun), Lol (Vicky McClure) and the rest of the gang are back together and all looking for love, a laugh, a job and something that resembles a future. Watch as they struggle with the soaring highs and harrowing lows of growing up and moving on. Set during the 1986 FIFA World Cup, This Is England 86 sees Shaun and his friends attempting to navigate life in Thatcher's Britain. With the gang back together after Combo's unspeakable act of violence, the future looks up - but they soon learn that the past always catches up with you, no matter how hard you try to forget. The events of This Is England 88 take place two years on, set in and around Christmas, there is a distinct absence of festive spirit as Lol and Woody struggle to come to terms with events from the past. Shaun, meanwhile, learns first-hand the pain that love can bring. This Is England 90 picks up the action in the spring of 1990, with some of the gang embracing the new decade with more gusto than others. Gazza's tears. Hubble's launch. Mandela's release. This is 1990. A lot can happen in a year, and in true This Is England style, their summer of love soon gives way to a winter of discontent.
