Fol­low­ing 2015’s suc­cess­ful first se­ries, Safe House has a new ap­proach for its sec­ond. While it still fo­cuses on a po­lice safe house run by a for­mer officer, this of­fer­ing has a new cast, a new lo­ca­tion and a whole new story.

This time we’re on the coast of An­gle­sey, at the house run by Tom Brook (Stephen Moyer), who once in­ves­ti­gated the ab­duc­tions of an as­sailant known as The Crow – and a re­cent in­ci­dent gives him cause to think The Crow might be ac­tive again…

“On the sur­face Tom is a solid, con­fi­dent man,” ex­plains Stephen. “But there is some­thing lurk­ing from his past that he’s man­aged to hide. Hav­ing been a po­lice officer, he’s now run­ning a safe house and has rein­vented his life. That’s as close as he’s get­ting to po­lice work. But he’s al­most as if a

sleeper agent – he catches a piece of news that brings some­thing from his past to life, and it’s kind of like he’s been switched back on…”

Tom and his part­ner Sam (Zoë Tap­per) run a sail­ing school, which meant that Stephen had to spend a fair bit of time in the water. Not that he minded too much…

“I had a cou­ple of sail­ing lessons,” he re­calls. “Then they put me in the boat with Zoë and set us loose

– a drone filmed us as we sailed out to sea. I still pinch my­self some­times be­cause what I get to do for my job is such a priv­i­lege. There are mo­ments where you rise above your­self, look down and go, ‘I can’t be­lieve I get to do this!’”
