Omid Djalili in The Change (Channel 4)

Omid Djalili, Monica Dolan, Ashley McGuire, Tanya Moodie, Liza Tarbuck, Jerome Flynn, Jim Howick and Paul Whitehouse join the cast of The Change on Channel 4, a brand new six-part comedy-drama series created, written by, and starring multi-award-winning stand-up comedian, actor and writer, Bridget Christie. The show is produced by Expectation.

Linda – played by Christie (Edinburgh Comedy Award, Rose D’Or and South Bank Sky Arts Award winner) – a 50-year-old working class married mother of two, is having an existential crisis. Who is she? What is she? Is this it? Convinced she’s got early onset dementia after forgetting what a shoe is called, Linda’s GP informs her it is, in fact, the menopause. Feeling invigorated and empowered by this information, Linda decides to claw back some of the time she’s spent doing ‘invisible work’ over the years (not all 3.5 million minutes, just 131,500 of them) to do something for herself… for a change.
