Capital Episode 2
When the ‘We Want What You Have’ campaign takes a nasty turn for the worse, the residents of Pepys Road demand greater action from the police. But whilst DI Mill (Bryan Dick) searches for a breakthrough, other forces continue to transform the fortunes of many of the road’s inhabitants.
Returning home after her Christmas sojourn, Arabella (Rachael Stirling) is troubled to discover that Roger (Toby Jones) is refusing to fall into line – and worse, rather than getting the house in order himself, he’s hired the attractive Matya (Zrinka Cvitesic) to help with the kids. At a banquet, Mark (Andrew Gower) reveals his own interest in Matya but is again dismissed by a jealous Roger.
Meanwhile, Petunia’s (Gemma Jones) health continues to deteriorate, causing Smitty (Robert Emms) to reveal a big secret to his ailing grandmother. But her sickness doesn’t mean that old resentments are just swept away, and Mary (Lesley Sharp) is left struggling to cope with the decline in her mother’s health.
When the Kamal brothers learn that their mother Mrs Kamal (Shabana Azmi) is planning to visit, Shahid (Danny Ashok) hatches a plan to finally get rid of Iqbal (Tom Reed). Elsewhere, Bogdan’s (Radoslaw Kaim) womanising causes difficulties between him and Piotr (Krystian Godlewski), and Mashinko (Kobna Holdbrook-Smith) is desperate to learn of the fate that has befallen Quentina (Wunmi Mosaku). *
