Strangers (ITV 2018, John Simm, Dervla Kirwan)

In 8 part thriller Strangers, British Professor Jonah Mulray’s life is turned upside-down after his wife, Megan Harris, is killed in a car-crash in Hong Kong. Wracked with grief, Jonah has no choice but to cross the ocean to bring home the woman he loved.

When Jonah arrives, he is immediately overwhelmed by the neon-saturated hyper-modern island of Hong Kong, a place in constant motion, and a world away from the halls of academia. It’s a city divided, with one foot still in its colonial past and another in its Chinese future. A world where we’re unsure if we can ever really know anyone at all – least of all Megan…
