We are thrilled to announce that Doctor Who writer Sarah Dollard is on board to adapt the award-winning YA novel Cuckoo Song for Catalyst.

Sarah has also written on Being Human, spy thriller The Game, The White Princess, You, Me and the Apocalypse and upcoming period drama The Halcyon. We are hugely excited to be working with her.

Set in 1920s England, Cuckoo Song  follows the story of a young girl whose world is turned upside down when she finds herself eerily altered and unearths a magical folklore world as she embarks on a quest to repair a broken family still haunted by the events of WWI. Mike Carey, the graphic novelist and author behind the brilliant The Girl With All the Gifts, starring Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton, brought the novel to Catalyst and will be an Exec Producer.
