New Martin Compston Psychological Thriller Airs Tonight

New Martin Compston Psychological Thriller Airs Tonight

The actor promises that viewers are in for a wild ride

Martin Compston is back with a new psychological thriller that's sure to twist people's minds.

Our House kicks off on ITV tonight (7 March) and sees the Line of Duty star play estranged husband Bram who suddenly disappears, leaving his wife Fiona (Tuppence Middleton) wondering where he's gone.

When she returns home, Fi is also welcomed by a whole new family living there, with all of her belongings removed.

Unsurprisingly a touch confused by the whole situation, she sets off on a desperate search for the truth.

The official synopsis for the drama says: "Fiona Lawson arrives home one day to find strangers moving into her house. With all her family’s possessions and furniture nowhere to be seen, Fi believes there’s been a huge mistake and insists her home isn’t for sale.

"With events spiralling beyond her control, her panic rises as she can’t reach her estranged husband, Bram.


"As she reflects upon the safe space in which she and her family had made a life together, Fi begins to peel back the layers of her relationship and discovers her husband has disappeared. With her life shattered, she realises the secrets and lies have only just begun.

"Intertwining the present day with flashback scenes of Fiona and Bram’s life together, their separation and their new relationships with Toby and Wendy, Our House gradually unravels unexpected secrets and shocking revelations, culminating in a nail-biting finale."

Speaking about the series and his role, Compston said viewers are in for a wild ride.


The 37-year-old told Radio Times: "At the heart of it is a relationship drama.

"It's about the breakdown of a marriage which then sort of morphs into this thriller, which I find really exciting because when I started reading it I got really wrapped up in the marriage of Bram and Fi and his breakdown, but then – it's hard to say without giving away spoilers – it just goes wild... it goes to places you really don't expect."

Compston also said it was quite a hard series to film.

He went on: "A lot of that is down to Bram's bad decisions and getting himself in more and more trouble...

"It has some really tough emotional scenes that myself and Tuppence particularly have to go through.

"I hadn't quite seen it like it before. And it's also have a successful book.

"So you know, you've got a sort of inbuilt audience to an extent. For me, it was a page turner."

The tense thriller also stars Rupert Penry-Jones (Whitechapel) as Toby, Weruche Opia (I May Destroy You) as Fi’s best friend and neighbour Merle, and Buket Komur (Honour) as the mysterious Wendy.

Our House airs on ITV at 9pm tonight.
