THE RE­PLACE­MENT

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - TODAY’S TV -

This heady mix of female jeal­ousy and para­noia, with a touch of sin­gle white female ter­ror, is go­ing to be your new Tues­day night drama fix. Mor­ven Christie is Ellen, a top ar­chi­tect who dis­cov­ers she’s preg­nant mo­ments af­ter scor­ing a £12.2mil­lion con­tract and a big pro­mo­tion. Right from the off, the strug­gle of moth­ers in the work­place is un­der the mi­cro­scope. Ellen is wor­ried her bosses will think less of her and is de­ter­mined to shrug it off with dec­la­ra­tions that she’ll be back in the of­fice in no time. “You’re ir­re­place­able,” says a col­league. But in walks her ma­ter­nity cover, the too-good-tobe-true Paula (Line of Duty’s Vicky Mcclure). She seems per­fect, but Ellen is sus­pi­cious that she has an agenda. Paula’s overly in­ter­ested in her preg­nancy for starters. Then she moves in on Ellen’s bosses, clients and friends. And an ac­ci­dent at work raises the red flag. So in­stead of rush­ing off to Mother­care, Ellen tries to voice her con­cerns – but no one hears the rav­ings of a preg­nant woman.
