The Replacement is a three-part psychological thriller set in Glasgow, which follows the paranoia of a woman who sees her identity being dismantled and can't work out whether the cause is another woman or her own baby.
When Ellen, a successful architect in her mid-thirties, falls pregnant, she finds maternity cover in Paula: brilliant, enthusiastic and raring to go. Ellen wants to champion her, but something's not right. Ellen begins to fear for her safety when she suspects her maternity cover has a disturbing agenda. Can her suspicions be explained away as female rivalry and her own insecurity of opting out of work at the top of her game… or do they speak to something deeper?
This chilling mini-series examines the darker side of working women, motherhood and the issues that arise from making "the right choice".
