Derry Girls (2018–presente), el mayor éxito de Channel 4 desde Max y Paddy’s Road to Nowhere (2004), es una comedia de situación para adolescentes ambientada en Irlanda del Norte antes del alto el fuego que, como no podría ser de otra manera, aborda cuestiones como el espacio a través de tropos habituales en la audiovisual adolescente. Esto es particularmente apreciable en “El concierto”, el tercer episodio de su segunda temporada, dirigido por Michael Lennox y escrito por Lisa McGee, un episodio donde los tropos dominantes son los del género de la road movie pero invertidos. Tal subversión estará directamente relacionada con cuestiones como espacio, identidad y contención durante el Conflicto norirlandés en la década de los noventa, así como con los confines de la adolescencia, el género, la etnia o clase social.
