Mrs Wilson: new BBC One drama starts filming, with Ruth Wilson

Mrs Wilson is a new BBC One drama that’s very close to the heart of its lead star, Ruth Wilson. Not just because she’s in it, but also because the new programme will be telling the story of her family’s history.

Wilson plays her grandmother in the drama, Alison, and she soon learns following the death of her husband that all was not what it seemed. In fact, he’d been living a secret life, and this comes to light when another woman turns up at the front door, also claiming to have been married to Mr Wilson.

The three part drama will take place across the 1930s, 40s and 60s, and Anna Symon (Indian Summers) has penned the script. Furthermore, filming has now begun on Mrs Wilson, kicking off in Belfast this week. Production will continue for the next few weeks.

We don’t have a transmission date as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
