The BBC have released a trailer for new single drama The Child in Time starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kelly MacDonald.
Set two years after his daughter went missing, The Child In Time follows Stephen Lewis (Benedict Cumberbatch), a children’s author, as he struggles to find purpose in his life without her. His wife Julie (Kelly Macdonald) has left him and his best friends Charles (Stephen Campbell Moore) and Thelma (Saskia Reeves) have retired to the countryside, battling demons of their own. With tenderness and insight, the film explores the dark territory of a marriage devastated, the loss of childhood, the fluidity of time, grief, hope and acceptance.
David Boulter and Adam Ackland, Executive Producers for SunnyMarch TV, says: “We are thrilled such an array of talent have joined Benedict to create The Child In Time, our very first SunnyMarch production.”
Helen Gregory, Executive Producer for Pinewood Television, says: “I’m so delighted to have such a talented cast join Benedict, Julian and the team and I’m very much looking forward to seeing them bring Stephen’s script to screen.”
A Child in Time is Coming Soon to BBC One.
