Thirteen is a BBC drama staring Jodie Comer as Ivy Moxam who was taken and held captive for 13 years. The mini-series starts with her escape from where she’s been held and goes on to tells the story of what happens when she returns to world that has moved on without her.
It’s not as action packed as an American drama, but it is still captivating and explores her different relationships from the past. I found it interesting but (without any spoilers) I was a little disappointed with the finale. On one hand it was a clear end to all the drama, but part of me still wants to tie up some lose ends and find out what happens with the other characters.
There are only five hour long episodes, so if you’re looking for something to watch but don’t have much time to invest, this could be the series for you. The box set is available on BBC iPlayer now.
