Andrew Buchan is so good as Mark Latimer, father of murdered Danny Latimer and a flawed but good man who is in danger of becoming lost in the aftermath of the worst tragedy imaginable.
Not only has Mark’s beloved boy gone for ever, but also his life is no longer his own: it’s being picked apart mercilessly by the defence team at Joe Miller’s trial, while his anxious, heavily pregnant wife Beth needs his constant presence and reassurance. Mark, meanwhile, finds solace elsewhere, perhaps unwisely. Poor man, he looks so hollow and adrift.
Buchan keeps everything low key in a performance of real subtlety. Just watch him in an exchange with
’s well-meaning vicar, who visits the fractured Latimer household to offer a blessing. “God’s not in this house, surely that’s clear by now,” says the bereaved dad, quietly, powerfully.
It’s another vivid episode that thrums with emotion as Ellie is forced to confront her marriage to a killer.
Hardy faces a race against time as Ellie discovers a startling new piece of evidence, forcing them to reassess their suspicions. Meanwhile, with DS Miller coming under intense pressure from all sides, life for Mark and Beth is about to change for ever. David Tennant and Olivia Colman star in the mystery drama.
