The new BBC thriller ‘Better’ scored by Samuel Sim will begin airing Monday 13th February, 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The five-part series from the same producers as Chernobyl and This Is Going To Hurt, stars Leila Farzad, Andrew Buchan, Samuel Edward-Cook, Carolin Stoltz and Zak Ford-Williams.
“We follow DI Lou Slack’s epic battle towards redemption, by bringing down Col McHugh; the man she has come to love like a brother and the man she has helped place at the head of Leeds criminal underworld. But while Col is a dangerous enemy to make, Lou’s biggest battle may yet be with herself. 19 years ago, when Lou was a young police officer at her lowest ebb and Col a low-ranking but ambitious newcomer to the Leeds underworld, their paths crossed, and they struck a deal that changed their lives forever. The bargain allowed Col to become very rich and very powerful, and Lou to turn around her failing career. A complex but special bond between the pair was forged, and so began Lou’s gradual slide into corruption. But now, when Lou’s family is brought to the brink of a tragedy, she must put right the wrongs that she has spent years rationalising and excusing, to have a second chance at a new, better life.”
