Will US maternity leave ever catch up? - BBC News
This new BBC drama about maternity leave will give you chills
Ever had the sneaking suspicion your maternity cover is actually a bit of a psycho?
Ellen is a Glasgow-based architect at the top of her game. She’s just won her dream project, a brand new public library, and been offered a promotion.
Then she falls pregnant.
Enter her maternity cover Paula. Paula seems nice at first. Then Paula seems overbearing. Then Paula seems downright creepy.
The Replacementis a brand new BBC show that spins the often-tough and stressful transition from work to maternity leave into a tense thriller that leaves you wondering whose side you should actually be on. Is Paula (played by the always-brilliant Vicky McClure) really as malevolent as Ellen (Morven Christie) believes, or is Ellen being seriously paranoid?
Broken up into a suspenseful three-parter,The Replacementis written and directed by Joe Ahearne (The Secret of Crickley Hall, Da Vinci’s Demons) and also stars Dougray Scott and Neve McIntosh as David and Kay (the husband and wife team who run Ellen’s practice) as well as Richard Rankin as Ellen’s increasingly concerned psychiatrist partner Ian, who begins to suspect her rants about Paula are signs she’s mentally unwell.
Though most women don’t end up worrying their maternity cover is intent on destroying them, the show does tap into an unsettling period in a working woman’s life, including the frustration of downing tools at what is often the most productive time in her career.
