Famed actor Benedict Cumberbactch (Sherlock, Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Imitation Game) returns to PBS’ Masterpiece this Sunday night, but not in his familiar role as the world’s most beloved detective.
Cumberbatch stars as author Stephen Lewis, opposite Kelly MacDonald (Brave, The Decoy Bride, Gosford Park) in this thriller, which sees Lewis on a desperate search for his daughter Kate after she mysteriously disappears. Things only get worse when Kate’s disappearance and the search for the little girl ends Stephen’s marriage with Julie (played here by MacDonald).
His three-year-long search for Kate is only one of his problems. He also has to deal with his best friend Charles Dark, who has resigned from his cabinet position and gone to live with his wife Thelma. It is that situation that leads to the story’s climax, which is then followed by another surprise.
The Child in Time airs Sunday night on PBS at 9/8c. More information on this and other Masterpiece programs is available online now at:
