The Chaneysville Incident by David BradleyThe legends say something happened in Chaneysville. The Chaneysville Incident is the powerful story of one mans obsession with discovering what that something was--a quest that takes the brilliant and bitter young black historian John Washington back through the secrets and buried evil of his heritage. Returning home to care for and then bury his fathers closest friend and his own guardian, Old Jack Crawley, he comes upon the scant records of his familys proud and tragic history, which he drives himself to reconstruct and accept. This is the story of Johns relationship with his family, the town, and the woman he loves; and also between the past and the present, between oppression and guilt, hate and violence, love and acceptance.

The veteran character actor has stolen the show in the glossy BBC adaptation. By Huw Fullerton. Surely, we think, this is a man about to receive his comeuppance. And that comeuppance does arrive speedily, as you might expect. As I say, none of this should be a surprise. Bradley is a master of portraying craggy older men with a soft side, most ably demonstrated during his BAFTA-winning turn in the first series of Broadchurch nearly six years on, I occasionally still choke up when thinking of a scene where his character, dressed in full Sea Scout regalia and facing an angry mob, realises none of his troop are coming to their meeting but also in superficially less complex roles. Playing both William Hartnell and his First Doctor in Doctor Who-related projects, he brought warmth from beneath a chilly exterior — and in a long and storied career, these are just a few recent examples.
