The Village is a BBC television series written by Peter Moffat. The drama is set in a Derbyshire village in the 20th century. The first series of what Moffat hoped would become a 42-hour televised drama, was broadcast in spring 2013 and covered the years 1914 to 1920. A second series was broadcast in autumn 2014, and continued the story into the 1920s. Future series were to be set during the Second World War, post-war Austerity Britain, and so on.
