In a year filled to the brim with high-quality programmes, it can be difficult choosing something to watch each night. Be it police procedural (Holding), surreal (Our House), spy thriller (The Ipcress File), or action/adventure (Around the World in 80 Days)  — there are standouts across all the British channels.

The Control Room is one of the shows we can’t wait to watch in 2022. Filming has concluded and the series is scheduled for release in summer. With a team comprising of those responsible for blockbusters such as Dracula and Sherlock, we wonder if their latest effort will be able to reach similar heights.

What is this new BBC drama about?

The Control Room tells the story of Gabe, an ordinary man who works as an emergency call handler for the Scottish Ambulance Service in Glasgow. What we know so far in regards to the plot is;

"Gabe's world is turned upside down one night when he receives a desperate life-and-death call from a woman who appears to know him. As Gabe finds himself under pressure to figure out who she is, he ends up making a decision that threatens to have devastating consequences."

The Control Room will air over three episodes. We can’t wait to see this story brought to life by this brilliantly talented cast and crew.
