Is The Control Room based on a true story?

The Control Room is not based on a true story.

The three-part series is written by Nick Leather and directed by Amy Neil.

It tells the story of an emergency call handler named Gabe, who is played by Ian De Caestecker.

While Gabe is working for the Strathclyde Ambulance Service in Glasgow, his world is “turned upside down when he receives a desperate life-and-death call from a distressed woman who appears to know him”, the BBC said.

“With Gabe under pressure to work out who she is, he makes a decision that threatens to have devastating consequences.”

The programme is set in Glasgow and was filmed in Scotland.
