British actress Sarah Lancashire has appeared in a whole host of different British television shows over the years, playing some very interesting characters along the way. In the course of her career, Sarah has put in some fantastic performances and it is really surprising that her career has not reached the heights that her talents and her performances deserve.
Nonetheless Sarah Lancashire is still working hard on British television and she can currently be seen in the new television series Happy Valley, where she plays the role of Catherine Cawood. Happy Valley is only on its second episode of the series but it already looks like becoming a huge success, with plenty of positive reviews already.
For those of you who have missed the first couple of episodes of Happy Valley and would like to know more about the series, it is officially described as, "Catherine is a no-nonsense police sergeant who heads up a team of officers in a rural valley in Yorkshire. When a staged kidnapping spirals out of control and turns into a much more brutal series of crimes, Catherine finds herself involved in something significantly bigger than her rank, but unknowingly close to home."
As well as seeing Sarah Lancashire in the lead role, Happy Valley has a fairly strong British cast which includes the likes of James Norton, Adam Long, Steve Pemberton, George Costigan, Siobhan Finneran, Derek Riddell, Joe Armstrong and Sophie Rundle. Happy Valley airs on BBC One on Tuesday evenings, with the next episode coming on Tuesday, May 13.
