Our House tells the four-part story of Fi Lawson (Middleton), who arrives home one day to find a family of strangers moving into her house, and her husband, Bram (Compston), has disappeared. As the nightmare takes a grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime and how they each are going to survive the chilling truth.

ITV Studios distributes internationally.
What are reviews from critics on ‘Our House’?
Reviews from critics on ‘Our House’: It’s a solid and absorbing family saga that benefits greatly from the stellar ensemble cast putting in such committed performances. The dialogue is naturalistic rather than overly poeticized there are no villains or heroes here just ordinary people trying their best to overcome obstacles. But this isn’t simply gritty realism for its own sake; the script is clever enough to pair moments of bleakness with those which offer hope. And despite appearances at first glance (it was partly filmed in Walthamstow, which looks like an English version of Detroit), it’s a warm and optimistic story.
