The Replacement

Writer: Joe Ahearne
Director: Joe Ahearne
Producer: Nicole Cauverien
Line Producer: Clare Kerr
Cast: Morven Christie, Vicky McClure, Dougray Scott.

When Ellen (Christie), a successful architect in her mid-thirties, becomes pregnant, she finds maternity cover in Paula (McClure): brilliant, enthusiastic and raring to go. Ellen wants to champion her, but something’s not right. Ellen begins to fear for her safety when she suspects her replacement has a disturbing agenda. Can her suspicions be explained away as female rivalry and her own insecurity of opting out of work at the top of her game… or do they speak to something deeper?

This chilling mini-series examines the darker side of working women, motherhood and the issues that arise from making ‘the right choice’.
