Town, The (ITV1 2012, Andrew Scott, Charlotte Riley)

Having been away from his home town for many years 30 year old Mark Nicholas is forced to return for a pair of funerals. Mark quickly discovers that things have changed and something weird is maybe going on. He is convinced the town mayor has something to hide and why is he getting weird text messages that simply say “I know”.

The Town was the first TV drama by playwright Mike Bartlett and features a very strong role for Andrew ‘Moriarty’ Scott in the lead.
