EP10: A Tale from Two Sides

EP11: Mourning Manchester, Mourning Malik
(Final episode)

by Zhahava Waseem

“A drama rooted in grime, simplified in rhyme, inspired by the experience of both yours and mine, is it really one of crime? I mean, some of you may think it’s fine. Malik and Myles, Posh and Poor, one gets wasted and one goes to the floor. A story of friendship, a story of fraud. So sit back and relax, you won’t get bored.”
