Hayley Atwell to star in BBC drama Restless
Story by Jack Foley
HAYLEY Atwell will star in new two-part BBC drama Restless.
The series is being adapted by William Boyd following the success of his previous novel, Any Human Heart, which also starred Atwell.
It follows a young woman who finds out that her mother is a spy during World War II and is subsequently forced to help her perform one final assignment.
BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson described Restless as the type of drama that “will connect with people’s lives”. It will air later this year.
