Photochemistry: Set in 1880s Ireland, this six-episode dark comic murder mystery drama follows the strange adventures of Dublin’s most famed memorial photographers, Brock Blennerhasset (Michael Smiley, Luther, who played Benny “Deadhead” Silver) and Conall Molloy (Kerr Logan, Game of Thrones, Alias Grace), who take professional portraits of the dead during the Victorian era of “postmortem photography.” Meanwhile, tenacious detective Frederick Regan (Aidan O’Hare, Jackie, The Sister Brothers) investigates a series of local murders and eyes possible disturbing connections between them and Brock. This series also stars Eileen O’Higgins (Brooklyn, Mary Queen of Scots) as Brock’s estranged, imaginative niece, Nancy Vickers.

Episode 1 – In Victorian-era Ireland, portrait photographer Brock Blennerhasset has made a successful career out of commemorating the recently deceased.
