Created by Emma Reeves and David Chikwe, Eve debuted in January 2015 and ran for three seasons (37 episodes). In the first episode “All About Eve” we meet renegade scientist Mary Douglas (Jane Asher) who is thrown out of her own scientific institute, Calimov Systems. Upon her dismissal Douglas commands Nick Clarke (Ben Cartwright) to destroy her top secret ‘Project Eternity’ prototype Eve (Poppy Lee Friar). Nick is stopped by his son Will (Oliver Woollford) just as he is about to destroy Eve. Will reconnects her and brings her back to life then persuades his Dad, Nick, to take her back to their home, where they’ll need to keep Eve’s existence a secret to protect her. Eve assumes the guise of Will’s cousin from the United States.
During her life with the Clarke’s Eve’s robotic abilities put her way above normal humans Eve has no clue about social skills and is often unaware of the dangers she may be in.
