The Child In Time
Confirmed for BBC One on 24 September from 9pm to 10.30pm
Sunday 24 September
Stephen Lewis, a successful writer of children's books, is confronted with the unthinkable: he loses his only child, four year-old Kate, in a supermarket.
In one horrifying moment that replays itself over the years that follow, Stephen realises that his daughter is gone. With tenderness and insight, the drama explores a marriage devastated by the loss of a child. Kate's absence sets Stephen and his wife, Julie, on diverging paths as both struggle with an all-consuming grief. With the passage of time, a balance of sorts returns, until hope surfaces and triumphs unexpectedly.
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen, Kelly Macdonald as Julie, Stephen Campbell Moore as Charles and Saskia Reeves as Thelma.
