Review

There’s a breath of irony from the very start of this febrile and gripping drama as we see Detective Sergeant Marcus Farrow (John Simm) hanging upside down after a road accident. His entire world has been thrown on its head, literally, emotionally and professionally.

Farrow is a good, popular cop devoted to his two young sons and ever hopeful that he has at last won round his estranged wife and that a reconciliation is on the cards.

But his life dissolves in the most terrible, unimaginable way possible and he begins a half-life on the run, dodging his colleagues as he tries to clear his name.

Written by newcomer Chris Lunt Prey is a breathless, confident and taut thriller, though it’s filmed in a guerilla documentary style that some might find offputting. But good on ITV for doing something so bold.

Summary

When Detective Sergeant Marcus Farrow is wrongly accused of the murders of his wife and son, he seizes the first opportunity to escape. On the run in Manchester, he's thrown into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse across the city, and as a wanted killer, he has few allies. Determined to be reunited with his eldest child and clear his name, the fugitive finds himself doing things he never thought possible as he tries to evade capture. Thriller, starring John Simm, with Rosie Cavaliero, Craig Parkinson, Anastasia Hille and Adrian Edmondson.
