‘Death and Nightingales’: First Trailer Reveals BBC’s Three Part Drama!! Check It Out!!!

The BBC has released a trailer for its three-part drama Death and Nightingales. Directed by Allan Cubitt (The Fall), the series is based on Eugene McCabe’s 1992 novel of the same name and stars Jamie Dornan (A Private War), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), and Ann Skelly (Red Rock); watch it here:

“Based on Eugene McCabe’s modern Irish classic, 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) 23rd 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.”
