What role does Bill play in this story?

He’s a farmer. It’s a hard life. I just think he’s a man who’s emo­tion­ally am­pu­tated. There are is­sues within his fam­ily, within his mar­riage, which be­come more and more ev­i­dent. I think he’s just some­body who’s drifted away, but has tremen­dous strength and tremen­dous anger, buried rage and pain.

How does the plot progress?

There’s a dou­ble mur­der and both fam­i­lies are suf­fer­ing, and then sus­pi­cion be­gins to en­cir­cle them. It gets more in­tense and the stakes get higher, and the sus­pi­cion gets more pointed and peo­ple start be­hav­ing more out­ra­geously be­cause they’re threat­ened for var­i­ous rea­sons. Each of the char­ac­ters has a bomb of some kind in­side them – a se­cret or an is­sue or a prob­lem.

How im­por­tant was the lo­ca­tion?

The world of it is re­ally strongly re­alised – the world of the farm was all that ex­isted for me. It was very well or­ches­trated, very well di­rected by Wil­liam Mcgre­gor. It was very sen­si­tive to the land­scape – and the in­ner land­scape of the char­ac­ters.

When did you know who the killer was?

I had a feel­ing af­ter I read episode 3. I didn’t know ex­actly but I knew why that per­son would have been forced to do that in that mo­ment.
