Come Home (BBC-1 2018, Christopher Eccleston, Paula Malcomson)

Edith (BBC-1 2017, Alison Steadman, John Cleese)

Compelling drama Come Home explores the messy realities of parenthood, marriage and what happens when a mother switches the reset button on her life.

Set and filmed in Northern Ireland, the drama will focus on a family reeling; from mother Marie, played by Paula Malcomson (Ray Donovan, Broken) who has made the hardest decision of her life, to her bereft husband Greg, played by Christopher Eccleston (The A Word, Fortitude) and their three children.

Christopher says: “I’m very proud to be working with Danny Brocklehurst, RED Production Company, the BBC and Paula Malcomson on this challenging and provocative drama.”

Paula adds: “After working in the US for 25 years I am thrilled to back home working for the second time in a year with the BBC and Northern Ireland Screen telling working class stories for a thinking, feeling audience.”

The three parter asks the question, what does it take for a mother to walk out on her family, leaving her children behind? What impact does it have and how do others judge her? This is a drama about how lives cannot just be walked away from. At the heart of the series is an emotional mystery: why did Marie flee?

Come Home is the first network BBC drama commission to be announced since the renewal of the BBC and Northern Ireland Screen partnership agreement in April this year. This joint agreement sees the BBC and Northern Ireland Screen work together to invest financially and creatively in developing an internationally competitive screen industry in Northern Ireland.
