Episode 1: Thirteen

Summary

Drama about a woman who escapes and returns home after being held captive in a cellar for 13 years. The police face a desperate rush to confirm her identity when news of her escape reaches the press, and while her parents are overjoyed to have her home, her sister fears she may be an imposter. Meanwhile, the police search the house she claimed to have been held in - and discover evidence that contradicts her story. Starring Jodie Comer

Review

Originally shown in 2016, this absorbing mini-series stars a pre-Killing Eve Jodie Comer as Ivy, a traumatised young woman who has been imprisoned in a cellar for 13 years. The story begins with Ivy’s escape, and we then follow her and her family, friends and former teachers as they try to adapt to this unexpected situation. Meanwhile, Ivy tentatively assists the police in their hunt for her kidnapper…

Comer’s nascent talent is plain for all to see. She is entirely convincing as someone who has been through a harrowing ordeal. Her eyes radiate fear and confusion; her clenched-up body language speaks volumes. It’s a subtly impressive performance.
