Jenna Coleman stars in the new four-part psychological drama The Cry, confirmed to start on Sunday 30th September at 9pm on BBC One.
Can you believe it’s already been three years since Jenna Coleman left the TARDIS? Since then, she’s been reigning over Sunday nights on ITV as Queen Victoria. But now, after lots of anticipation, she’s finally making her BBC comeback.
The Cry consists of four 60-minute episodes and is a thrilling, psychological new drama series written by Jacquelin Perske. It is inspired by the best-selling novel of the same name by Helen FitzGerald.
Jenna plays the lead role of Joanna and Ewen Leslie (Safe Harbour, Top of the Lake) plays her husband, Alistair. Together they must deal with unthinkable tragedy when someone abducts their newborn baby from a small coastal town in Australia. This harrowing event is the catalyst for a journey into the disintegrating psychology of a young woman. Through its drama, The Cry promises to expose the myths and truths of motherhood.
The series is produced by Glasgow-based Synchronicity Films with the backing of Creative Scotland, December Media, Film Victoria and Sunbird Media Ltd. Filming took place in Scotland and Australia.
