John Simm starred in the first series of Chris Lunt’s thriller, and
returns with Simm’s old Life on Mars mucker Philip Glenister in the lead role. He’s a different character though in a similar situation, an innocent man on the run from the law.
Luckily for Glenister’s decent prison officer David Murdoch, he’s pursued by the unimaginative Detective Sergeant Susan Reinhardt (Rosie Cavaliero). Reinhardt, who last year was stalking her ex-husband, has a new man in her life. She has a new sidekick, too – an irritating, cocky kid who takes selfies at crime scenes.
So you’ll probably be on the side of Murdoch if not sulky prisoner Jules (Myanna Buring). The two are stuck with each other when David’s pregnant daughter is abducted. If he wants to see her again, he has to spring Jules from jail. Though energetic and workmanlike, it’s hard to care.
The thriller returns, this time following the story of prison officer David Murdoch who is forced on the run with a young female prisoner when his daughter is kidnapped. DS Reinhardt has a new prey in her sights - but she is unaware of the threat against Murdoch. Starring Philip Glenister, Rosie Cavaliero and MyAnna Buring.
