Masterpiece Episode: "The Trouble with Millat and the Return of Magid"

Season 32, Episode 21
Episode Synopsis: The conclusion of Zadie Smith's comic novel “White Teeth,” set in multicultural North London in 1992, follows another generation of Joneses and Iqbals, and, as it happens, Archie's daughter Irie (Sarah Ozeke) is in love with Samad's son Millat (Christopher Simpson), a gang banger. He loves her, too---like a sister. Later, he'll get religion, while his twin brother Magid (Simpson), whom Samad had sent to Bangladesh to find religion, finds science instead. But the two do connect (and connect with Irie as well) under the loose auspices of an arrogant geneticist named Marcus Malfen (James Bathurst), who's engineering a “FutureMouse.”

Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
