Will in­ter­feres in his sis­ter Juli­ette’s re­la­tion­ship af­ter mak­ing a chill­ing dis­cov­ery...

Acom­plex in­ves­ti­ga­tion chal­lenges DI Will ‘Staffe’ Wagstaffe as his per­sonal trou­bles es­ca­late in this week’s two in­stal­ments of Dark Heart.

When the de­tec­tive

(Tom Ri­ley) looks into the bizarre death of a nurse at a Lon­don Un­der­ground sta­tion, it tran­spires that the vic­tim in­gested poi­sonous seeds.

Con­nec­tions soon emerge to a sur­geon at the hos­pi­tal where the nurse worked and, as the death count rises, the sur­geon’s wife, Phoebe (Claire Goose) de­mands an­swers…

Mean­while, Will is also bat­tling to pro­tect his sis­ter, Juli­ette.

The mum, played by Char­lotte Ri­ley, is irate

when her son, Harry (Joseph Teague), is caught shoplift­ing. Will tries to find out why Harry’s mis­be­hav­ing, but he’s hor­ri­fied to dis­cover that Harry has bruises that seem to have been caused by Juli­ette’s fi­ancé, Paulo (Ed­ward Akrout).


‘Will was a fa­ther fig­ure to Harry un­til Paulo came along, so it grates on Will hav­ing him in the pic­ture,’ says Char­lotte.

But as Will con­fronts Paulo for hit­ting his nephew, there could be con­se­quences for Juli­ette’s fu­ture hap­pi­ness...

Mat­ters grow in­creas­ingly com­pli­cated when Will un­earths sur­pris­ing in­for­ma­tion about the fi­nances of his par­ents, who were mur­dered when he and Juli­ette were teenagers. Can his sis­ter an­swer his ques­tions?

‘They’ve both been hugely af­fected by the loss of their par­ents,’ says Char­lotte. ‘I think Juli­ette knows more. There’s some­thing that she’s hold­ing back from Will…’
