Nick Leather The Control Room

Filmed and set in Scotland, The Control Room is a gripping, nail-biting drama from Hartswood Films, written by BAFTA and RTS award-winning writer Nick Leather (Mother’s Day; Murdered for Being Different).


The Control Room tells the story of Gabe (Iain De Caestecker), an ordinary man who works as an emergency call handler for the Scottish Ambulance Service in Glasgow. His world is turned upside down when he receives a desperate life-and-death call from a woman who appears to know him. With Gabe under pressure to work out who she is, he makes a decision that threatens to have devastating consequences.
