Morven Christie (The A Word) and Vicky McClure (This is England) front The Replacement, a new psychological thriller for BBC One, written and directed by Joe Ahearne (The Secret of Crickley Hall, Doctor Who, This Life), produced by by Left Bank Pictures.

The series will also star Richard Rankin, Dougray Scott, Neve Mackintosh, Navin Chowdhry and Siobhan Redmond.

When Ellen (Christie), a successful architect in her mid-thirties, falls pregnant, she finds maternity cover in Paula (McClure): brilliant, enthusiastic and raring to go. Ellen wants to champion her, but something’s not right. Ellen begins to fear for her safety when she suspects her replacement has a disturbing agenda. Can her suspicions be explained away as female rivalry and her own insecurity of opting out of work at the top of her game… or do they speak to something deeper?

This chilling mini-series examines the darker side of working women, motherhood and the issues that arise from making “the right choice”.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Joe Ahearne (writer/director), Morven Christie and Richard Rankin. 

Networking drinks will take place afterwards in The Lane.
