Imagine spending your whole childhood growing up in seclusion in the wilderness to eventually set out into the real world as an adult. This is the premise of the latest Sky Original Two Weeks To Live which stars Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams and we have all the details on how you can watch the new series online or on TV.
Williams plays a strange young misfit named Kim Noakes whose father died under mysterious circumstances when she was just a girl. Following her father's death, Kims' over-protective mother Tina, played by Fleabag's Sian Clifford, whisked her away to the countryside. There Kim learned a number of bizarre survival skills such as how to strip a Smith & Wesson SDVE pistol in six seconds flat and skin a deer to make a sleeping bag. Based on this, it's clear that Tina and her now deceased husband were not your ordinary parents and were likely involved in much more than Kim knows.
At the start of the series, Kim is all grown up and she decides to head out into the world for the first time on a secret mission to honor her father's memory. On one of her first stops, she heads to a pub where she meets Nicky, who isn't good at impressing girls, and his brother Jay who own the establishment together. Kim and Nicky have a few drinks and an ill-judged prank sets up a chaotic series of events that puts everyone in danger. Tina arrives on the scene looking for her daughter and the unlikely crew soon find themselves on the run from murderous gangsters and the police with a bag full of stolen cash.
Whether you're a big Maisie Williams fan and miss seeing her in Game of Thrones or you just want to see what this new black comedy from Sky is all about, we'll show you how to watch Two Weeks To Live online from anywhere in the world.
