Thirteen (BBC-3 2016, Jodie Comer, Richard Rankin)

5 part thriller Thirteen, was BBC Three’s first online drama, written by rising star Marnie Dickens.

After 13 years held captive by her kidnapper, today is the day Ivy Moxam escapes. Her family have stopped waiting by the phone, stopped flyering, one of them has even given up hope altogether. Suddenly here’s Ivy, flesh and blood, returned to them. But piecing back together the version of family life that existed before is no easy task…

Ivy is the only one who knows her kidnapper, who understands him, who can help DI Carne and DS Merchant snare him. Leads run cold and the kidnapper evades capture, the police begin to suspect Ivy is not telling them the whole truth. As she fights to retain her sanity, she begins to hear the whispers that surround her. The doubts beginning to form. The anomalies of her statement. The errors. The outright lies. What happened in that cellar? Where is her kidnapper? Can Ivy really be trusted?

Written by young rising star Marnie Dickens, Thirteen explores how to pick up the threads of a life half-lived and how to survive as a family under the greatest pressure. How to feel again, chance love again. A psychological drama about who to trust when you can’t even trust yourself. Ivy Moxam is a young girl. Ivy Moxam is a woman. Ivy Moxam is whoever you want her to be.

Plot wise the second season of BBC One drama The Missing owes an awful lot to this production.
