Sky and HBO drama Landscapers stars Oscar winner Olivia Colman and David Thewlis as Susan and Chris Edwards respectively – a real-life couple accused of double murder.


The four-part series, written by Colman's real-life husband Ed Sinclair, takes an unusual, almost meta approach to its material, summarised as "art-house true crime" in our three-star Landscapers review.

Directed by Will Sharpe, the eccentric series delves into the fantasy world of Susan (Colman) in particular, who is obsessed with film memorabilia, Hollywood Westerns, and film stars like Gary Cooper.

In November, released an exclusive first-look behind the scenes of Landscapers, with both lead stars featured in the four-minute clip.

The featurette, titled Landscapers: Love, Truth and Fantasy, sees Thewlis and Colman – and director Sharpe – discussing Chris and Susan’s relationship and some of the show's central themes.

"We do all kinds of things for love and often for things that we mistake for love," Thewlis says at the beginning of the video, before Colman adds: "I don't know if I'd kill someone for love... but then no one's ever asked me!"
