Pete McTighe's BBC One drama The Pact has returned for a second season, with all six episodes already available to binge on BBC iPlayer.
Although the second run shares stylistic similarities with the previous season, it is otherwise telling an entirely new story – with an almost completely different cast having been drafted in to play a fresh batch of characters.
The only recurring face in the cast is Rakie Ayola, who played DS Holland last time out and this season returns as new character Christine – a woman whose life is upended when a man who looks very much like her deceased son comes into her life, claiming to have a shocking connection with her family.
