Glasgow in December is a place and a time with a particular look, and The Nest is a production which enthusiastically embraces that aesthetic. Broadcast in the UK beginning in March 2020, it was produced for the BBC by Studio Lambert as five one-hour episodes featuring a couple, played by Martin Compston and Sophie Rundle, trying to start a family via a surrogate, played by Mirren Mack in her first leading role.
