Har­riet tries to help Dawn get back on track

There’s a new project for vicar Har­riet Finch, and it doesn’t in­volve the choir. Hav­ing dis­cov­ered that pros­ti­tute Dawn is the daugh­ter of a drug dealer called Will, whom she helped con­vict, Har­riet blames her­self for how Dawn’s life has turned out and wants to help.

Af­ter all, she prac­ti­cally raised Dawn as her own child, and when Will was sent to prison, she left.

Know­ing that Dawn misses her son – Lu­cas, who is in care – Har­riet ar­ranges an ap­point­ment with so­cial ser­vices. She also en­cour­ages her to kick her heroin ad­dic­tion and get a job. But Dawn’s at­tempt at a fresh start suf­fers a knock­back when she is given some dev­as­tat­ing news.

Says Olivia Brom­ley, who plays Dawn: ‘There’s go­ing to be a deep dive into un­der­stand­ing what has brought this young woman to a place where she has been trapped in a cy­cle of ad­dic­tion and re­ly­ing on vi­o­lent men. Maybe she’ll get out of it with the right help and sup­port, but I think she’ll con­tinue to make mis­takes and wreak havoc.’

Sup­port: Har­riet wants to be there for Dawn
