Days after wrapping up her stint on Line of Duty as DCS Patricia Carmichael, Anna Maxwell's next project has just released a picture. She is set to star in a new ITV thriller Hollington Drive - and it sounds addictive.

Anna will play one of the lead protagonists, Theresa, alongside Rachael Stirling who will portray her on-screen sister, Helen, in the four-part drama, which comes from acclaimed screenwriter Sophie Petzal.

The sisters seem to be close, with their families spending lots of time together. But when we meet their families on a warm evening at Theresa's house, viewers will soon realise this is simply the calm before the storm.

Theresa's partner Fraser (played by Rhashan Stone) and Helen's partner, David (Peter McDonald) are also at the house. When Theresa's ten-year-old son Ben (Fraser Holmes) asks to play in the nearby park with his cousin Eva (Amelie Bea Smith), the adults soon start to feel uneasy.

Fraser is relaxed and is fine for them to go, but this doesn't help Theresa's fears of rising feelings of anxiety. When the children fail to return on time, Theresa goes out in search for them.

Anna also stars in BBC Two's Motherland (

Her suspicions are heightened when she finds the children on the edge of a woodland area and they appear to be fighting. Immediately her instincts tell her something terrible has happened.

This is all too realised when later that evening distraught neighbour, Jean (Jodie McNee) calls on the family to tell them that her ten-year-old son Alex has gone missing.

Screenwriter Sophie Petzal said: "I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Jonathan Fisher and West Road Pictures once again to bring our project Hollington Drive to ITV. We hope it will keep audiences gripped to their televisions."

Fans of Doctor Who have called for Anna to take over the role from Jodie Whittaker if she leaves the series (
