What is Deadwater Fell about?
Tom is a well-liked GP in a small Scottish village, Kirkdarroch, where he lives with his wife Kate, a primary school teacher, and their young daughters. Kate’s best friend and colleague is Jess, who moved to the village six years ago, marrying Steve, the local police sergeant.
However, “one night the illusions of happiness and contentment are shattered as the community is drawn to Kate and Tom’s family home in the forest by the flicker of flames and the smell of smoke,” according to the show’s official synopsis.
“Amid the confusion of the house fire, Kate and her three children are found dead, and Tom, who is found alive, is rushed to hospital. It soon becomes apparent, however, that Kate and her children weren’t killed in the fire and the village realise that something unspeakable has happened.”
While suspicion falls on Tom, Jess is desperate to uncover the truth behind the horrific crime — no matter the cost.
Deadwater Fell is written by Daisy Coulam, the woman behind ITV’s Grantchester.
