The comedy Undoing Martin Parker will air on BBC One in 2023. It takes place in Manchester in the last days of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government (around 1990), and Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill plays a businessman whose life is going crazy.
The show is written by Sian Gibson and Paul Coleman. It’s about Martin Parker, an ambitious self-made impresario who seems to have everything. Martin’s wife Diane, who is played by Rosie Cavaliero, has been through a lot.
Sian Gibson, who co-wrote the series and plays a local hairdresser says, “My fashion sense hasn’t changed since 1990, so it’s a dream to be reliving my youth and dusting off my crimpers with this amazing cast and wonderful team.”

Undoing Martin Parker Plot
Undoing Martin Parker follows Martin, who is played by Conleth Hill. Martin is a self-made businessman with “the ambition of Alan Sugar and the swagger of Kilroy Silk,” as described by Martin Parker. He owns a chain of stores that sell electronics and seems to live well. In reality, though, he has a lot of debt, and his complicated personal life is about to catch up with him.
Martin has hurt a lot of people to satisfy his constant need for money, sex, and success. But soon, those people may get the best revenge on Martin.
People like his wife Diane (Rosie Cavaliero), his father-in-law Dougie (George Costigan), his mobile hairdresser Kath (Sian Gibson), and Kath’s best friend Gladys (Sheila Reid) are only too happy to plan his downfall.
