First Look At Martin Compston’s New BBC Drama ‘The Nest’ Is Here

First Look At Martin Compston’s New BBC Drama ‘The Nest’ Is Here

If you're looking for a gritty new drama to watch, then BBC's The Nest could be right up your street.

The five part Scottish TV drama, written by award winning writer Nicole Taylor, focuses around a wealthy couple and a teenage girl, who make a life changing pact.

When 18-year-old Kaya (Mirren Mack) agrees to cary a baby for besotted duo Dan (Martin Compston) and Emily (Sophie Rundle), after they meet on opposite ends of town, it seems like the world threw the trio together on purpose.

But did it all really happen by chance?

As the story unfolds, Martin Compston - who is best known for his role in Line Of Duty - and Sophie Rundle - from Peaky Blinders and Gentleman Jack - go on a journey with Kaya that prompts a lot of questions.

Who *actually* is she? Who sent her to them? And will their dreams of having a baby ever come true with her aid?

The lead couple are joined by an all-star cast as the emotional mystery unfolds, including Katie Leung from Strangers, David Hayman from Hatton Garden. Christine Bottomley from The End Of The F*cking World and Shirley Henderson from Happy Valley.

Meanwhile, Kaya certainly looks mysterious as she is pictured walking out of the sea with a hint of a smile on her face, and a fixed glare.

We want to know more already...

Discussing the new show, Nicole Taylor, writer and Executive Producer, said: "I am overjoyed to be filming in my hometown of Glasgow with a cast I have long dreamt of writing for.

"Martin, Sophie, Kate, Shirley, James, David... they've all been chatting away in my head for years as I've been writing (unbeknownst to them!) so I could not be more proud that they have agreed to join The Nest and make these characters real."

Filming for the hit show started in September, so it shouldn't be too long before the show hits screens.

However, we don't know an official release date yet. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
