The four-part murder mystery, written by Neil Cross (Luther, Spooks) and inspired by his novel Burial, follows a man attempting to escape the (potentially literal) ghosts of his past. Nathan (Russell Tovey) is a well-meaning man who’s spent years trying to atone for a terrible secret from his past, involving the disappearance of his wife’s sister, Elsie (Simone Ashley).
However, a decade into his new marriage with wife Holly (Amrita Acharia) and Nathan is visited by Bob, a figure from his old life who is somehow connected with Elsie’s disappearance. Bob imparts shocking news to Nathan, resulting in “a series of catastrophic decisions which cleverly drive a tense and compelling narrative of psychological suspense, dread, love and possible redemption”.
