Come Home Airs on BBC One

Mar 27, 2018

The first episode of Come Home, directed by Andrea Harkin, airs on BBC One on  Tuesday 27th March 2018, at 9:00 pm. 

Come Home tells the story of a family struggling to cope after the mother abandons them. Through multiple time-frames, viewpoints and flashbacks this three-parter traces the breakdown of a marriage, the mother’s decision to leave and the devastating consequences on her husband and children. In doing so, it pushes the audience to challenge their own truths and traditional views on parenthood, femininity and masculinity. 

Set in Belfast, Come Home stars Christopher Eccleston and Paula Malcomson.
