Myles said: "As soon as I read the first two episodes, I fell in love with Lola. I felt that she was a lost soul and I felt sorry for her. I instantly wanted to love her, I instantly wanted to look after her and all those instincts I can't bring into this character."

Her police partner DI Jackson Mendy is played by Babou Ceesay, who recently starred opposite Idris Elba in Sky Atlantic's drama series Guerrilla, from Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley.

Dipo Ola plays former child soldier Baba, one half of the murderous couple at the heart of this story, who made a big impression in a recent episode of Inside No. 9 and also appeared in Channel 4's Baghdad Central.

His dangerous new flame, Freddy, is played by Hermione Corfield, known for her appearances in action films like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, as well as ITV war drama The Halcyon.
