Derry Girls discuss Brexit and “The Troubles”

Channel 4’s Derry Girls is easily one of the best sitcoms to hit British television in a long while. It mixes up an all-female spin on The Inbetweeners and some pitch perfect 90s nostalgia, with a poignant and realistic portrayal of The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Derry Girls stars Saoirse-Monica Jackson as Erin, and actually grew up in Derry; Nicola Coughlan and Louisa Harland, who play Clare and Orla respectively and are both from south of the border; and Englishmen Dylan Llewellyn, who portrays James.
