Six part thriller set in Dublin. More info coming soon…
Keeping these streets clean is a Herculean task, enough to demoralize even the keenest rookie – but there’s a reason why this hotchpotch of committed cops are on this force, on this side of town. Drug labs, arsonists, neo-Nazis and notorious murderers are all in a day’s work for this close-knit team, led by the dizzyingly capable but unquestionably unhinged DI Vivienne Deering (Scanlan). But when a particularly twisted serial killer emerges it leaves even the most hardened of these seasoned coppers reeling.
Flanked by her right-hand women – the compassionate but impulsive DC Dinah Kowalska (Cassidy) and the recently (surprisingly) promoted DS Joy Freers (Roach) – Deering and her team must crack this case by whatever unconventional means possible. Because amidst all the assorted low life; the pimps, the petty thieves, and downright nasty bastards they’ve dealt with, this will be their most disturbing case yet, one that will touch their lives in ways they could never expect.
All 16 episodes from the first and second series of the BBC Victorian costume drama. Set in a north of England town, the programme follows shopworker Denise Lovett (Joanna Vanderham) as she struggles to make her way to the top after managing to gain a lowly position as a salesgirl at ‘The Paradise’, the town’s newly opened upmarket department store. Whilst being kept under the watchful eye of head of ladies fashion, Miss Audrey (Sarah Lancashire), Denise is quick to snatch an opportunity for advancement when her talents come to the attention of the store’s devious widowed owner, Moray (Emun Elliott).
Written and directed by Stephen Lord (whose most recent role was Jase Dyer in Eastenders), the experimental series stars an award-winning cast that includes actor Ian Hart (Prof. Quirrell in Harry Potter) as the title character Dr Hoo, alongside Elaine Cassidy (Harper’s Island, Room With a View, The Others) as his assistant Zara.
Under the tough regime of Detective Superintendent Carol McKay (Emma Fielding), her new and powerful boss – Amy finds it difficult to tow the line.
Amy’s shadow and support in the Ghost Squad is Pete (Jonas Armstrong form Robin Hood), a thrill-seeker with a dangerous edge and a killer smile. Depending on each other in the edgy world they inhabit, theirs is a relationship that is always electric.
In the costly world of undercover investigations, Amy cannot afford to fail. But in this complex world of political expediency nothing is clear cut.
Susan “Sue” Trinder is a fingersmith (British slang for thief) who lives in the slums of London with a baby farmer (person who looks after unwanted babies) Mrs.Sucksby. When a once rich man, who gambled all his money away, presents them with a scam that has a payout of 40,000 pounds, Sue signs on to swindle rich Maud Lilly. Maud is an orphan who lives with her uncle, but what exactly is going on in the Lilly house? Sue will pose as Maud’s maid so that Mr.Rivers (the gentleman) can get close to and eventually marry her. Their plan is to put Maud in the madhouse and take the money for themselves. All goes astray though when Sue falls in love with Maud. And the question is: Who can you trust?
Gemma, Spike, Vicky and Albert are like other teenagers. But they have something special that sets them apart from the rest is that four of them are part of the Alpha Centauri network that allows them to communicate with children their age without any problem from a former military satellite and a computer called Terminal.
I certainly didn’t want Katherine to be the pantomime villain. To me she’s a real person and she has so many different sides to her.
