David Schwimmer: ‘Why my BBC Christmas drama about poverty should replace Doctor Who’

David Schwimmer: ‘Why my BBC Christmas drama about poverty should replace Doctor Who’

Friends star Schwimmer has produced a searing BBC drama about families living in temporary accommodation at Christmas

The last time we saw David Schwimmer, the Friends star posted an endearingly goofy video on Twitter, riffing on his uncanny resemblance to a robbery suspect caught on camera in Blackpool. Today we encounter the Hollywood actor in a very different mode, furrowed of brow and musing on Ken Loach and the British social realist film tradition in the bowels of London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts. It’s the kind of pivot which Schwimmer, loved by millions of viewers as nerdy palaeontologist Ross Geller in the 90s-defining sitcom Friends, has negotiated throughout a career which allows him to shift between passion projects and mainstream comedic roles.

Every Thursday a team of parishioners and members of the local community cook lunch for 38 hungry people. We ask no questions about why they are hungry but provide them with a hot delicious meal in the warmth of Pryors Bank.

Over the past past year some good friendships have developed.
