BBC Reveal First Look At Jamie Dornan & Matthew Rhys New Drama Death And Nightingales

The BBC have revealed a first look at the upcoming BBC Two drama Death and Nightingales starring Jamie Dornan and Matthew Rhys.

The pair are joined on the drama by Ann Skelly and the 3 part drama based on Eugene McCable’s modern Irish classic, will air on BBC Two later this year.

Death And Nightingales is a riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the beautiful haunting countryside of Fermanagh in 1885. A place where neighbours observe each other and inform, a world of spies, confessions and double dealing; where a pervading sense of beauty is shot through with menace and impending doom.

Set over a desperately tense 24- hour period, it’s Beth Winters’ (Ann Skelly) 25th birthday - the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Jamie Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys). As decades of pain and betrayal finally build to a devastating climax, Death And Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.

Written by The Fall creator Allan Cubitt, the series is produced by from Imaginarium Productions and Soho Moon and was filmed this summer in Northern Ireland.
