The hid­den gem that’s been mak­ing waves in Wales, Keep­ing Faith, has ar­rived on BBC One and gets its UK pre­miere on DVD thanks to Acorn Me­dia In­ter­na­tional.

Eve Myles, star of Broad­church and Torch­wood, plays the epony­mous lead in a thrilling drama that was filmed si­mul­ta­ne­ously in English and Welsh.

Orig­i­nally air­ing on BBC Wales in its na­tive tongue, as Un Bore Mercher, the se­ries be­came the most pop­u­lar show on the chan­nel in more than 20 years and so it now has made its de­but on BBC One and ar­rives on DVD in early Septem­ber.

Set against the stun­ning back­drop of ru­ral Wales, we meet Faith How­ells (Myles), a lawyer on ma­ter­nity leave af­ter the birth of her third child. When her hus­band and busi­ness part­ner, Evan (Bradley Free­gard), mys­te­ri­ously dis­ap­pears, her life is turned up­side-down.

The stay-at-home, fun-lov­ing, care­free mother must turn de­tec­tive and pow­er­house, tak­ing huge risks to solve the mys­tery and pro­tect her fam­ily. But she soon dis­cov­ers that her beau­ti­ful idyl­lic home town, set on the es­tu­ary, harbours many dark se­crets that threaten the lives of her and the peo­ple she loves the most.

The eight-part se­ries was cre­ated by Matthew Hall and also stars Mark Lewis Jones, Han­nah Daniel and Matthew Grav­elle.

Let’s Talk has teamed up with the pro­duc­ers of the DVD and can of­fer three read­ers the chance to win one, sim­ply by com­plet­ing the en­try form on this page.

It’s a DVD likely to at­tract lots of at­ten­tion.

“You must do what­ever you can to watch it. Stay up all night. Call in sick. Ig­nore your chil­dren. What­ever it takes. You’ll thank me for it,” said iNews.
