With Brexit (supposedly, but with so much chaos you can’t be sure) a few months away, this drama couldn’t be more timely.

It follows the behind-the-scenes working of the two campaigns, and in particular the two men who lead them. On the Remain side was Craig Oliver (Rory Kinnear), while for Leave there was Dominic Cummings (Benedict Cumberbatch) – a man who took this job reluctantly and frequently clashed with Eurosceptic MPs that he hated.

Brexit: the Uncivil War is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
