“The Woman in the Wall” (2023) 6 part thriller BBC TV
Ruth Wilson, Daryl McCormack.
Director Harry Wootliff.
Creator: Joe Murtagh
Lorna Brady (Ruth Wilson) is a woman from the small, fictional, West of Ireland town of Kilkinure, who wakes one morning to find a corpse in her house. Chillingly, Lorna has no idea who the dead woman is or if she herself might be responsible for the apparent murder. That’s because Lorna has long suffered from extreme bouts of sleepwalking, understood to have manifested around the time she was incarcerated in Kilkinure Convent at the age of 15, one of the inhumane institutions for “fallen women”.
Unluckily for Lorna, the extremely ambitious, albeit elusive Detective Colman Akande (Daryl McCormack) is now also on her tail for a crime which is seemingly unrelated to the dead woman she’s discovered in her house.
Due for release on BBC 1 – November 2023

But once they start pulling at threads, they discover a story much bigger and weirder than they could have ever imagined.
