BBC’s Noughts and Crosses is based on author Malorie Blackman’s novel of the same name which first came out in 2001. The book focuses on the love story between Cross Sephy (played by Masali Baduza), who is from the black ruling class and the daughter of the Home Secretary, and Nought Callum, a white member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. Their blossoming romance not only spells trouble for them but also for their loved ones as racism continues to strengthen its grip in this alternate universe.
As well as the love story of Sephy and Callum, Noughts and Crosses also pays attention to Callum’s brother Jude McGregor (Josh Dylan).
Struggling to cope with the unfairness of being part of the underclass, Jude regularly takes his anger out on the police enforcing the laws and those who look down on him.
But his anger soon grows after friend Danny (Charlie Chambers) is brutally attacked by an officer during a night out with his friends.
Danny ends up in hospital with life-threatening injuries and Jude can only sit by and hope that he pulls through.

He isn’t the only one either who is determined for things to change as groups of Noughts start to meet to discuss their current situation.
While his brother Callum is trying to get into a military academy which is predominantly attended by Crosses, Jude is more eager than ever to change the unjust system he has grown up in.
Fans will just have to wait to find out where this will lead him and what he will think about Callum’s new romance.
