A HIT Welsh tv drama, whose first series broke BBC iPlayer records, is back on screen tonight (Sunday).

The latest series of Un Bore Mercher – better known to non Welsh-speaking fans as Keeping Faith – has been eagerly awaited.

Lawyer, mum and wife Faith Howells (Eve Myles) and her iconic yellow mac will be back in Abercorran - magnificently and moodily played by Laugharne - as the next chapter in her troubled life unfolds.

The first series ended on a cliffhanger when Faith’s husband Evan (played by Eve’s real-life spouse, Bradley Freegard) re-appeared after his mysterious disappearance, to find her in the arms of Steve Baldini (Mark Lewis Jones).

The new series begins on S4C tonight (Sunday) at 9pm, with English sub-titles available.

So what can viewers expect? Said Eve: “The new series picks up the story some 18 months after the events of the first series – although we do revisit the night that Evan returns at the end of the first series.

“The family stays in Abercorran, but Evan has left things in a mess and suddenly the world is a very dangerous place because of the things that Evan has got himself involved in.

“Both Faith and Evan have to consider the children and what is best for them, so we both do our very best to normalise things for their sake.”

Pendine has also been used as a location for the filming of the series, alongside Laugharne, which Eve described as “magical and intoxicating”, with a very warm welcome.

As Keeping Faith, the series was broadcast in English on Wales on BBC One Wales, receiving outstanding ratings.

During the summer of 2018, the series was shown on network television across the UK – the first time a BBC Wales/S4C joint tv drama production has gone out on BBC One.

Keeping Faith will be shown on BBC One Wales later this year.
