THIRTEEN

BBC America, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new five-part import stars Jodie Comer as Ivy, a young woman who is shown, in the opening scene, running to a payphone and begging for help, claiming that she’s escaped from captivity after being imprisoned in a cellar for 13 years (hence the show’s title). Think of it as a variation on the theme already explored in ABC’s The Family, if you like, but here it is. For a review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
