Wolf releases trailer starring Doctor Who and Game of Thrones actors
Sacha Dhawan and Iwan Rheon star in the new BBC One crime drama which is led by Ukweli Roach as young detective DI Jack Caffery.
Upcoming BBC One thriller series Wolf has just released its first trailer – giving viewers a first glimpse of Doctor Who's Sacha Dhawan and Game Of Thrones star Iwan Rheon in the new show.
The cast for the six-part crime drama is led by Ukweli Roach (The Midwich Cuckoos), who plays young detective DI Jack Caffery, while Sian Reese-Williams (Hidden) Juliet Stevenson (Out Of Her Mind), Owen Teale (Line Of Duty) and Annes Elwy (The Light In The Hall) also have key roles.
The chilling 90-second trailer opens with Caffery declaring: "Your theory on those murders, it's full of holes" and goes on to show Dhawan and Rheon's characters play some deeply sadistic games with the inhabitants of a country house – before the two narratives appear to come together.
You can watch it in full below:
The official BBC synopsis for the series reads: "DI Jack Caffery is a young detective beset by nightmares. Obsessed with the neighbour he believes murdered his 10 year-old brother in the 90s, Jack finds himself trying to right the wrongs of others - but at what cost?"
The synopsis continues: "In an isolated house in Monmouthshire, the wealthy Anchor-Ferrers family find themselves the victims of a psychopath’s cruel games, trapped and terrorised. When the two narratives collide, it’s a thrilling, nail-biting, and deeply disturbing race against time."
