Season 2 Episode 1
Acclaimed actress Rosie Cavaliero is joined by Philip Glenister, MyAnna Buring, Ralph Ineson and Sammy Winward for the second series of ITV’s gripping drama. After losing her chance of promotion in the first series, DS Susan Reinhardt (Cavaliero) now reports to DCI Mike Ward (Ineson). Widowed prison officer David Murdoch (Glenister) lives alone but remains close to his pregnant daughter Lucy (Winward). When Jules Hope (Buring), an inmate at HMP Ravenhill, is taken ill, Murdoch escorts her to a Manchester hospital. While Jules is waiting for treatment, Murdoch takes a phone call that will change his life for ever.
His daughter Lucy has been kidnapped and if Murdoch wants to see her again he must break Jules out of hospital and take her to the man holding Lucy captive. If he talks to the police, Lucy will die. Murdoch knows that he has no choice but to comply, but when the plan goes awry he is forced to take matters into his own hands. Unaware of the danger to Lucy, DS Reinhardt tries to figure out why Murdoch is behaving totally out of character. He has an unblemished reputation as a prison officer, so why is he making every effort to dodge the police?
