Airdate: Thirteen

Picture Shows: Ivy Moxam (JODIE COMER) - (C) BBC - Photographer: Todd Anthony

Next month BBC First premieres UK drama Thirteen, which stars Jodie Comer as a woman who escapes from the cellar where she has been imprisoned for 13 years.

It also features Natasha Little, Stuart Graham, Richard Rankin, Valene Kane, Aneurin Barnard and Katherine Rose Morley.

The 5 part series premiered in the UK in February.

This tense psychological drama follows a young woman learning to live again after 13 years in captivity. 26-year-old Ivy Moxam stumbles out into the street, away from the cellar that’s been her prison for the last 13 years. But escape is not the end of Ivy’s story. It’s just the beginning.

As she returns home, Ivy’s parents keep their bitter separation from her, desperate to recreate the idyllic life she was wrenched from. A mother who can’t confront the truth of those missing years, a father torn between two versions of his life, and a sister who still feels hidden in Ivy’s shadow. They’re trying so hard to be normal, nothing is.

Ivy’s captor is on the run, and she isn’t safe. Assigned to the case are DI Elliott Carne and DI Lisa Merchant. Their bond is more than professional, but it begins to break as Carne is drawn closer to Ivy.

Then cracks appear in Ivy’s account of her ordeal, and they start to doubt her motives. Beneath her childlike façade, she’s become a strong-willed woman. What happened to Ivy in that cellar? How has it changed her? And can she be trusted?

Sundays at 8.30pm from July 31 on BBC First.
