Crime drama series In Deep focused on the cases of undercover cops Liam Ketman and Garth O’Hanlon who specialised in going deep into the world of the crooks they were trying to crack.
Ketman is married with two kids and his work puts a huge strain on his relationship with his wife Pamela. O’Hanlon meanwhile is single and very much a loner. New regular for season two, Kelly, joined Ketman and O’Hanlon in their undercover work. The final episode of season two had a shock ending with the bombshell of Ketman’s wife being murdered.
The first season consisted of three two part stories whilst the second and third seasons featured four two parters. In Deep was very much a star vehicle for it’s two leads Nick Berry and Stephen Tompkinson.
Guest stars were quite high profile too though and included the likes of Ian McShane, Peter Capaldi, Lucy Cohu, Donald Sumpter and Michael Maloney.
