Episode 3 - Moving On - Man of Steel about homophobia in Sport

Episode three: Man Of Steel. Mark Addy stars in a powerful story that takes on a very contemporary issue: homophobia in sport.

Josh Chambers is 53 years old. He was once a rugby league international, and every injury he sustained over his 20-year career has come back to haunt him. His back throbs, his shoulders ache, his knees creak.

But people love Josh: he’s a local hero, a man of steel.

But his identity is threatened when his ex-wife Carol shows up on his doorstep, demanding he give her £5,000 in 48 hours to repay a debt that her new husband has run up in prison.

Josh, she insists, must sell his international caps - and if he doesn’t, she will expose a secret that he has been hiding all his life…

Jimmy McGovern's hit series returns to BBC One, with five powerful, original 45-minute dramas about compelling characters at a turning point in their lives.

Written by Andy Lynch. Made by LA Productions.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
