Video: Interview with the creative team of TV drama Complicit

The creative team behind Complicit, a taut psychological thriller exploring the dangerous world of counter-terrorism, discusses the drama’s conception and production.


We welcomed writer Guy Hibbert, director Niall MacCormick and cast members David Oyelowo and Arsher Ali to BFI Southbank for a panel discussion hosted by writer and broadcaster Mark Lawson.

Hibbert explains his decision not to depict any physical violence and his revulsion towards Quentin Tarantino’s films, while actors David Oyelowo and Arsher Ali talk about the use of the n-word in a key interrogation scene, and the typecasting of Asian performers in terrorist roles.
