From the BBC, a synopsis of the first episode:
EastEnders actor Danny Dyer hopes that he will 'freak a few people out' with his family history. Danny sets out to discover the history of his tough working-class family in the East End of London, but in the process he unearths an extraordinary lineage stretching back to the Norman conquest.
Who Do You Think You Are magazine has a feature on the actor's story at http://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/five-things-you-might-not-know-about-danny-dyer
