AIRDATE: Wednesday 18 November 2015 at 10.00pm on ITV

Season 1 Episode 1

Sean Bean leads a distinguished cast, including Anna Maxwell Martin, Charlie Creed-Miles, Ed Stoppard, Samuel West, Steven Berkoff and Kate Dickie, in this thrilling and terrifying reimagining of the Frankenstein myth.

Set in Georgian London, the six-part crime drama opens with a successful operation by Thames river police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers. As he stands at the water’s edge, Inspector John Marlott makes a shocking discovery.

The body of a dead child is washed up on the shore, but further examination of the corpse reveals that it is not a child but a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form. It comes as no surprise when Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel (Tom Ward) tells Marlott that details of the investigation must remain confidential.

In the second episode, Seeing Things, Marlott visits the house of artist and printmaker William Blake (Berkoff), who is on his deathbed but receives Marlott as a prophet of things to come. Later, Marlott confers with Nightingale (Richie Campbell), a local policeman who has been keeping watch on The Fortune of War, a public house known as a place where body snatchers gather. The pair set up a cunning sting to capture a person of interest who may be able to help them with their investigation.

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.
