Product Details

Marchlands is the gripping story of three different families living in the same house across three generations, the 1960s, 1980s and the present day. The families are linked by the spirit of a young girl, Alice - the daughter of a family that lived in the house in 1968, who died under mysterious circumstances.

This distinctive contemporary drama stars an ensemble cast including Jodie Whittaker (Cranford; Venus) playing Ruth Bowen, the grieving mother living in Marchlands in the 1960s, with her husband, Paul (Jamie Thomas King - Tudors) who is struggling to cope with her difficult and dominating mother-in-law, Evelyn Bowen, played by Tessa Peake-Jones (Only Fools and Horses). Alex Kingston (ER; Doctor Who) stars as Helen Maynard, who plays the mother of a 1980s family who becomes concerned by her daughter’s imaginary friend called Alice and finally Shelley Conn (Mistresses) plays Nisha, who moves to Marchlands with her partner, Mark (Elliot Cowan – The Fixer) and are expecting a baby. As the atmospheric story weaves through the three generations of families up to the present day, the truth about what really happened to Alice emerges.
