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