In the Dark

Series 1 - Episode 3



Detective Helen Weeks, clutching her baby bump, is trying to make a go of a life with the man who might or might not be the father of her child. He wasn’t very happy about this confusion when we left him, but he seems to have come around.

Their fragile happiness is short-lived after a chain reaction of events that leads Helen (MyAnna Buring) to start her own investigation into her boyfriend’s dealings with the kind of TV Mr Big who runs his ops from an empty warehouse.

Everyone around Helen continues to try to arrange her life for her, which must be so irritating, while a gangland turf war explodes on the streets.


Five months after the Polesford case, a heavily pregnant Helen is still battling with the fallout from her infidelity. Her life is derailed by a gangland shooting with tragic consequences. Just days from giving birth, she is plunged into a murder investigation involving Manchester's criminal underbelly, forcing her to question everything she holds dear. Drama, starring MyAnna Buring and Tim McInnerny.
