Set in the now prosperous post-war Britain, The Outcast is billed as a romantic, uncomfortably honest, coming-of-age story.

At just 10 years of age, Lewis Aldridge loses his is mother Elizabeth, leaving him alone with a father, who due to years away at war, he hardly even knows. Later when his farther Gilbert remarries to the ill-equipped Alice, Lewis ends up relying on his friendship with neighbouring children Kit and Tamsin. Now virtually abandoned by Gilbert, Lewis’s life heads off on a downward spiral.

Premiere Date

Broadcasting on BBC One over two 90-minute episodes, The Outcast’s exact start date and time has now been officially set for Sunday 12 July, 2015 at 9:00pm. The concluding part is scheduled to air the following Sunday.

If your wondering what the name of that theme music is in The Outcast advert, the song is called ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’ and it’s sung by American doo-wop group The Flamingos. This version of the song was originally released in 1959.

Filming Locations

Getting underway during late summer of 2014, The Outcast was mostly filmed in the English home county of Buckinghamshire.


The Outcast is directed by Iain Softley and produced by Blueprint Pictures.

Speaking at the start of filming, Pete Czernin of Blueprint Pictures told the BBC: “This is Blueprint’s first foray into television and we couldn’t think of a better novel to start our TV endeavours.”
