New Martin Compston Series ‘The Nest’ Has Got An Official Start Date
Well, the BBC drama is nearly upon us, with actor Bailey Patrick officially revealing its hitting screens next Sunday. Eeeek.
The Nest has been penned by BAFTA award-winning Three Girls writer Nicole Taylor and stars Compston (complete with a Scottish accent), Peaky Blinder's Sophie Rundle and Sex Education's Mirren Mack.
What. A. Lineup.
According to the BBC, the five-part "emotional thriller" centres on the life-changing pact made between a wealthy couple and a teenage girl, who agrees to act as their surrogate.
When 18-year-old Kaya (Mirren Mack) agrees to carry 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?
"Dan and Emily are crazy about each other. They live in a huge house in a beautiful location just outside Glasgow and want for nothing.

"All that's missing is a baby - and they've been trying for years. Through a chance encounter they meet Kaya, an 18-year-old from the other side of the city, whose life is as precarious at theirs is comfortable," the BBC teases.
"When Kaya agrees to carry their baby, it feels like they were meant to meet, but was it really by chance? Who is Kaya and what has brought her to this couple?
"Can the dreams of Kaya, Emily and Dan be fulfilled or have all three embarked on a relationship of mutually assured destruction?"
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.
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."
The Nest will air on BBC One on Sunday March 22nd.
