Moving On is a British television series consisting of standalone contemporary dramas first shown on daytime BBC One. The first episode, titled "The Rain Has Stopped", aired on 18 May 2009.

As of November 2013, five series and a total of 30 episodes have aired.

Production history[edit]

The first series of five episodes aired for one week in May 2009, and featured Sheila Hancock, Lesley Sharp, Richard Armitage, Dervla Kirwan and Ian Hart.[1] Although originally broadcast in an early-afternoon slot, less than a month after the initial airing the first series was repeated to an evening audience.[2]

The reception was good enough for a second series to be commissioned, planned to comprise ten episodes. The second series was broadcast during a two-week period beginning 1 November 2010.[3]

Series 3 was confirmed for autumn 2011 starring Reece Dinsdale, Christine Bottomley, Dean Lennox Kelly, Paul Usher and Eva Pope,[4] but has been cut back to five episodes. Filming started on 14 January 2011 and the series was aired from 14–18 November 2011.

Series 4, featuring five episodes, started on 28 January 2013. Series 5 began on 11 November 2013; with the 5-part series available exclusively on BBC iPlayer from 8 November, before it was broadcast on BBC One. Moving On is the first BBC television drama series to do this.[5]
