Identity: Pariah (ITV1 19 Jul 2010 with Sarah Smart)

Published

on

UK / ITV1 Network – ITV Studios / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast Monday 19 July 2010 @ 9.00pm

Writer: Ed Whitmore / Director: Brendon Maher

Series: Identity / Season 1 Episode 3

“Bloom was SO10’s most decorated officer, over 100 arrests”

In Pariah, Episode three of the series, the team have to help Amy Quilan who has been in witness protection for ten years after getting involved in a bungled kidnap with her partner Brian, a kidnap that resulted in the death of a little girl. It seems the residents in the area where she is now living have discovered who she really is. Then her own son is kidnapped in an echo of the case from ten years before. Bloom quickly becomes convinced there is a more to the case than looks apparent.

Bloom’s undercover life as Brendan O’Shea is starting to seriously unravel too, he is more or less ordered to visit in prison the gang boss whom Brendan is in deep with, his problems are compounded when he is then told to perform a hit on Atif.

A bit of an icky episode leaving a none too pleasant taste in the mouth, typically strong performances from Sarah Smart and Phil Davis though.

The series is very much turning into a star vehicle for Aidan Gillen too, he is all over every frame of the show whilst Keeley Hawes’ presence is barely felt in this episode. On the positive side though Jose and Anthony are turning into a nice double act, with generally a scene each week where the duo visit a witness and Jose blunders in with some barely thought statement and Anthony has to apologise for him.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
