A series filmed in Margate last November with Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams is now available to watch on Sky.

Two Weeks to Live is a tale of love and revenge born from a seemingly harmless prank that goes terribly wrong. Maisie is joined by actor Mawaan Rizwan.

Kim Noakes (Maisie Williams), is a strange young misfit who was just a little girl when her father died in murky circumstances. Following his death, her mother Tina whisks her away to a remote rural life of seclusion and bizarre survival techniques.

Now all grown up, Kim sets out into the real world for the first time to begin a secret mission of honouring her father’s memory. Meanwhile, socially awkward Nicky isn’t good at impressing girls, and when Kim walks into his and brother Jay’s local pub, it sets in motion a chaotic series of events that puts all their lives in danger.

Numerous Margate scenes appear in the series after the crew carried out shoots at Fort Mansions- Fort Crescent in Margate, Margate Main Sands and sea defences, Westbrook and the Stone Pier and St Mildred’s Bay in Westgate. Some of the crew stayed at The Bay Tree hotel in Broadstairs.

  1. This was a great article. I suppose based on the filming of season one that it probably means that if filming is done around November, this year, then season 2 will be greenlighted.

    I have no way of getting access to two weeks to live because I am in the United States. Hopefully, Netflix or HBOMax will pick up the first season. Or, I will have to wait until it comes out on dvd.

    Eventually, I will get to see it.

    There has been a lot of great reviews of the show. Without spoilers. Do you think the show has a chance of getting nominated by the Emmys, Golden Globes or Bafta?

    Let me know? Thanks.
