'Mrs Wilson' Begins on BBC One
28 Nov 2018 : News Desk
The three-part drama series, which aired Tuesday November 27th, was filmed on location in Northern Ireland and received funding from Northern Ireland Screen supported by the Department for the Economy.

Award-winning actress Ruth Wilson (‘The Affair’, ‘Luther’) and ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Iain Glen star in ‘Mrs Wilson’, a new original original series about the life of Wilson’s own Grandmother. Alison Wilson (Ruth Wilson) returns home to find husband Alexander (Iain Glen) dead. Blinded by grief, Alison is bewildered when a woman unexpectedly arrives at the door, claiming to be Alec’s ‘real wife’ Gladys (Elizabeth Rider).

Alison embarks on a mission to discover who her husband really was. But by dissecting their wartime romance whilst working for the secret service, and learning about his mysterious past in India, it soon becomes clear to Alison that Alec died holding his secrets close to his chest.

Alison is left craving the truth as she makes discoveries that threaten to tear her carefully crafted world apart.

Wilson had been carrying around the story with her for several years, wondering whether she should, or could, tell it on the screen. This complex tale of espionage, betrayal and polygamy is a co-production from BBC One and British production company Masterpiece Productions.

The second episode of Mrs Wilson will air on BBC One on Tuesday, December 4th at 9.00pm.
