The Change, a brand new six-part comedy-drama series created by Bridget Christie.

The Change, a brand new six-part comedy-drama series produced, written, and starring multi-award-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and writer Bridget Christie, has been commissioned by Channel 4. Expectation is in charge of the show's production.

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.  

Dusting off her old Triumph motorbike that she hasn't ridden in 30 years, Linda sets off alone to the spectacular wilderness of The Forest of Dean - in search of an identity, a purpose, and tree she climbed as a child. Along the way she meets an array of eccentric locals, including the infamous Eel Sisters, an angry local radio presenter and a mysterious man who lives in the woods with the wild boar. What could possibly go wrong?
