The Silence
Dearbhla Walsh’s latest project, ‘The Silence’ will start a four night consecutive run on BBC on Monday, July 12th. The series, which filmed in Ireland earlier this year, stars IFTA winner Dervla Kirwan (Ondine) and Genevieve Barr in her acting debut.

Eighteen-year-old Amelia Edwards, played by deaf actress Genevieve Barr in her acting debut, has recently been fitted with a cochlear implant, enabling her to hear, but she struggles to accept that she has a place in the hearing world. Breaking free from her over-protective parents, played by Gina McKee (In The Loop) and Hugh Bonneville (Lost In Austen), she goes to stay with her party-loving cousins, homicide detective uncle Jim, played by Douglas Henshall (Collision) and Dervla Kirwan’s warm-hearted Aunt Maggie. Amelia witnesses the audacious murder of a policewoman, and is reluctantly propelled further into a loud and frightening world.

‘The Silence’ is written by Fiona Seres (Love My Way, The Surgeon) and produced by Eleanor Greene (Party Animals). The series’ executive producers are Charles Pattinson (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers) and George Faber (Persuasion) for Company Pictures and Polly Hill (Inspector George Hill) for BBC One. Screen Scene's Peter Tighe (Cherrybomb) is currently carrying out the series' post production work in Ireland.

The first part of ‘The Silence’ will start on Monday, July 12th at 9pm on BBC1 and will run for the next three nights at the same time.
