The Child in Time: Premieres April 1st
Based on Ian McEwan’s prize-winning novel, The Child In Time is a lyrical and heart-breaking exploration of love, loss and the power of things unseen. Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Parade’s End) will star as Stephen Lewis, a successful writer of children’s books, who is confronted with the unthinkable: the loss of a child.
The 90-minute drama will air on MASTERPIECE on Sunday, April 1st, 2018.
Unforgotten: Coming April 8th
Nicola Walker (Last Tango in Halifax) and Sanjeev Bhaskar (Indian Summers) star as police officers investigating the cold-case murder of a boy whose diary implicates four seemingly unconnected couples in a thriller that The Guardian (UK) hailed as “so much more than a satisfying murder mystery.”
