Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) might have been relieved to see villainous Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton) behind bars as Happy Valley series one came to an end — but that doesn’t mean her ordeal is over.
Far from it, in fact. In the new, very short, trailer for series two of the award-winning BBC1 crime drama, Catherine is still haunted by her daughter’s death and by the very existence of the man she deems responsible.
The trailer shows her walking out of a courthouse, with the phrase “never goes away, does it? He’ll never go away” echoing in her head. It’s chilling stuff.
