The Nest writer Nicole Taylor has revealed that viewers shouldn't expect the BBC One mystery drama to be all "tied up in a bow" once it finishes.

Starring Sex Education's Mirren Mack, Gentleman Jack actress Sophie Rundle and Line of Duty star Martin Compston, the new show centres on Dan (Compston) and Emily (Rundle), a wealthy couple who discover just how far they are willing to go to have a baby when they bribe a broke, teenage stranger named Kaya (Mack) to be their surrogate.

But they're faced with a difficult decision when their plan backfires and the 18-year-old demands they give her £50,000 for helping them start a family.

"I hope that over the course of the series you will keep switching your allegiances from character to character because no-one is totally transparent," Taylor explained to Digital Spy after the first episode aired last night (March 22).

"I think they're all kind of relative strangers to each other and there's a lot to find out about Kaya, but there's a lot more to find out about the other two characters [Dan and Emily] as well."

Taylor went on to add that she hopes the five-part miniseries will prove "emotional, thought-provoking and satisfying" for those tuning in every week, "without it being tied up in a bow".

The Nest continues on Sunday, March 29 at 9pm on BBC One.
