It's 2011 in Britain. There's a Department of Driverless Vehicles, an outbreak of a contagious genetically engineered crop-borne disease, and the country is mired in the MEWs, Middle Eastern Wars. Hundreds of British soldiers are dying each month. Selwyn Knox is minister of the new Department of Society. He's on a mission to wipe out immorality in Britain, beginning with issuing parenting licenses. Voicing a range of emotions, including fear and rage at the moral superiority of Selwyn, Anton Lesser is superb at controlling pace and suspense. An excellent performance.
