A couple live every parent’s nightmare in this one-off drama. Benedict Cumberbatch is at his brilliant best in this gripping TV adaptation of Ian McEwan’s 1987 novel.

The Sherlock star plays a dad, Stephen, whose life is thrown into a pit of sadness when his young daughter disappears.

As he devotes every hour to trying to find her, his marriage crumbles and he’s haunted by memories.

But life goes on, however brutal the circumstances, and when Stephen’s best friend suddenly announces he’s quitting his job to retreat to the countryside, a shocking secret is uncovered that leaves everyone reeling.

This could be the drama to finally win Benedict a BAFTA after seven nominations.
