A grim case brings a detective home in this brooding drama
drama / 9.00pm / BBC1
As this gripping four-part series opens, tough Manchester cop Helen Weeks
(Ripper Street’s Myanna Buring) has a surprise for partner Paul, a fellow cop – she’s pregnant. No sooner has she told him than her world is shaken even further by a news report that two teenage girls have gone missing from Polesford, her Derbyshire home town – and the husband of her childhood best friend Linda (a hypnotic Emma Fryer) is the main suspect. Manoeuvring herself into the investigation, Helen returns home – but the girls’ disappearance is not the town’s only mystery… Absorbing, with a great cast – look out for Peep
Show’s Matt King as a stylish pathologist.
