ITV's The Walk-In continues tonight, with the gritty series's second episode set to continue the true story of Neo-nazi turned anti-fascist Matthew Collins, played by the brilliant Stephen Graham.


Episode 2 will continue exploring how Collins worked with anti-fascist organisation Hope Not Hate to send moles – known as walk-ins – into far-right organisations and successfully stopped a double murder plot targeting MP Rosie Cooper and detective Victoria Henderson.

The series also counts Jason Flemyng and Game of Thrones' Dean-Charles Chapman among its cast.

The official synopsis for The Walk-In says: "Stephen Graham takes the leading role, of activist Matthew Collins, a reformed Neo-Nazi, now working as a bona fide journalist for the anti-racist organisation, Hope not Hate.

"Written by Oscar nominated and BAFTA multi award-winning screenwriter, Jeff Pope, the drama is an explosive state-of-the-world series that explores some of the most critical and relevant issues of modern times including racism, freedom of speech and terrorism.

"It’s a thought-provoking, conscience stirring drama which poses timeless questions - What makes people fear and hate those who are different from themselves? Can someone’s view of the world be fundamentally changed?"
