The Woman In The Wall on TV and online

The Woman In The Wall begins on BBC One on Sunday, 27 August and Monday, 28 August at 9PM. The show then continues Sunday nights at 9PM.

The series has six-episodes. You can also watch online via BBC iPlayer.

Meet Lorna Brady (portrayed by Wilson), a woman hailing from the quaint, fictional Irish town of Kilkinure. Her world is turned upside down one fateful morning when she stumbles upon a lifeless body in her home. The chilling twist? Lorna has no recollection of the deceased woman’s identity, nor can she ascertain whether she herself is entangled in a web of murder. Plagued by crippling bouts of sleepwalking since her harrowing confinement in a convent at the tender age of 15, Lorna’s life has been forever altered. In the shadows of her fragmented memory lies the heart-wrenching tale of her daughter Agnes, cruelly wrenched from her loving arms without a trace.

Enter Detective Colman Akande (played by McCormack), a determined investigator on Lorna’s trail. Though seemingly unrelated to the enigmatic corpse, Colman’s pursuit of justice unveils unforeseen layers of complexity. His meteoric rise in the ranks of the Garda Síochána is fueled by an innate brilliance, his acerbic wit masking a deep-seated melancholy. As Colman’s path converges with Lorna’s, the two are thrust into a whirlwind of secrets and revelations that will forever alter their lives.

As Lorna’s desperate quest for her daughter intertwines with Colman’s relentless pursuit of truth, the stage is set for a riveting tale of mystery, suspense, and emotional discovery.
