Sea­son 2 Mon­days (from 21 Septem­ber) M-Net Edge 20:00

We didn’t know much about Kim En­gel­brecht’s Do­min­ion (2014cur­rent) char­ac­ter Noma Walker in sea­son 1, ex-ex­cept that she’s a higher an­gel who’s been mas­querad­ing as a hu­man. The rev­e­la­tion floored her soldier friend and ex-lover Alex (Christo­pher Egan). “Now view­ers will see how it af­fects their re­la­tion­ship,” says the for­mer Isidingo (1998- cur­rent) star, who played Lolly from 2002 to 2012.

How does Alex deal with Noma’s an­gel sta­tus in sea­son 2? He’s strug­gling. Alex doesn’t trust her or Ar­changel Michael (Tom Wis­dom), who knew the se­cret. Things are shaky, but when Alex’s life is in dan­ger in episode 1, Noma tries to res­cue him. From there on, it’s bet­ter be­tween them. The road ahead is full of dan­ger, but with ev­ery hur­dle they be­come closer and on their jour­ney more of Noma’s past is re­vealed. We spoke to Do­min­ion cre­ator and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Vaun Wilmott:

The open­ing scenes of sea­son 2 are dark and gritty. Was that your plan all along? We had to go there. There was an Ex­ter­mi­na­tion War that left mil­lions dead; the world is rav­ished, ru­ined and bleed­ing. I wanted the show to be more re­al­is­tic and dan­ger­ous. Will we see new cities? View­ers will fi­nally see New Del­phi but will be sur­prised to see how things work there. It’s not what you would ex­pect. Let’s just say 8ballers [evil an­gels who pos­sess hu­man bod­ies] can be tamed. Then there’s Mal­lory, an iso­lated town where peo­ple wor­ship “God”, but it’s not nec­es­sar­ily “God” as we know it. So which char­ac­ter should we look out for this sea­son? I’d say South African ac­tor Luke Tyler, who plays Pete. He is an 8baller and Alex per­forms an ex­or­cism on him and drives the lower an­gel out. Alex and Noma then dis­cover that Pete holds a se­cret to Alex’s jour­ney.

Kim’s soar­ing high with her an­gel role.

Christo­pher Egan as Alex.
