Keeley Hawes has signed up to a new TV drama project - a dark and disturbing reimagining of John Wyndham’s classic science fiction novel The Midwich Cuckoos. The 1957 book is an alien tale about an English village called Midwich where an object appears from nowhere and all the inhabitants fall unconscious. The next day things go back to normal - except for the fact that all the women of age become pregnant overnight. In the modern-day TV adaptation for Sky One, Keeley will play psychotherapist Dr Susannah Zellaby helping to support those affected through the emotional wilderness in Midwich.
