At the surface, Derry Girls is a jovial show about growing up as a Northern Irish teen in the ‘90s. However, there has always been an undercurrent of trouble with news snippets and comments made by characters.

The years during which the show is set are some that saw huge moves towards peace in Northern Ireland. However, the Ma Mary and Aunt Sarah flashback episode next week will plunge viewers right back to the height of the Troubles.

Speaking to Digital Spy, creator Lisa McGee said episode five would focus on the “horrific” times the two women grew up in.

She said, “In Northern Ireland, you handle it with humour, and you just crack on. I think for the parents’ generation, it was a war zone.

“It was horrific what they went through, and we just didn’t appreciate it.”
