Alan Bates (played by Toby Jones) is now retired but is still working to help mend the lives that were affected by this scandal. In an interview with Wales Online, Alan said, “At 68, I would love to be able to take my foot off the pedal. But I will stay involved until everyone from the original group who is entitled to compensation receives the full financial redress they’re eligible for. Once everyone’s received their money, I’ll feel I’ve done my bit.”
