The first official promotional photo for BBC One’s The Living and the Dead has been unveiled.
Written by the co-creators Life On Mars, Eternal Law and Ashes To Ashes, the new supernatural drama stars Colin Morgan (Merlin, Humans) and Charlotte Spencer (Glue).
The official synopsis reads: “Somerset, 1894. A house that’s almost as old as the English countryside itself. A brilliant young couple inherit the farm and are determined to start a new life together. But their presence in this isolated corner of England starts to unleash strange, unsettling and dangerous supernatural phenomena that will start to threaten their marriage.
“This is a drama steeped in the eeriness of the rural world at the moment when the industrial revolution came crashing in to disrupt all the old certainties. Uncanny, intriguing, disturbing. At the series’ heart is the love story of Nathan and Charlotte Appleby: deeply in love with each other but put under extraordinary pressure, they will have to fight to save their marriage and their home.”
The Living and the Dead is currently filming in the West Country, directed by Alice Troughton (Merlin, In the Flesh).
