Brand-new, four-part drama In The Dark, by Bafta-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (Ordinary Lies, The Driver, Exile) starring MyAnna Buring and adapted from books by best-selling novelist Mark Billingham, premieres on BBC One on Tuesday 11 July at 9.00pm.
As DI Helen Weeks (MyAnna Buring) grapples apprehensively with pregnancy, she’s compelled to return to her loathed rural home town of Polesford, Derbyshire with her partner and fellow detective Paul (Ben Batt). Two girls have been abducted and the man arrested is married to Helen’s childhood best friend, Linda Bates (Emma Fryer).
As a result, Linda has been drawn into the centre of a media storm and the local police force is under enormous pressure to get their man. But is he guilty? And why is Helen so desperate to come to Linda’s aid, after avoiding Polesford for all these years?
